German term or phrase: Steuerpakete
Again, a fault with a tractor. The handwritten German seems to say:
beide Steuerpakete geplatzt.
The part that is difficult to read is the 'p' area in 'Steuerpakete' but I am fairly certain that the word ends in -ete. Steuerrakete might be an option but I'm not sure whether a tractor would have one?

English translation:control boxes
Explanation:
I would opt for control box, as I have difficulty imagining a steering box bursting.
But one cannot be sure when considering the origin of the text. Is there a chance of asking the farmer what he means?
