    Honda Quad front wheel bearing

    Well that was a doddle even for a spannertard like me, thanks to @Tony1989 who got me the parts at a competitive price :) I even pushed the boat out and replaced the front brake pads whilst the wheels were off..... C B

    Batteries for leccy fencing sheep

    Find a local car breakers and buy some off them, they are usually happy to swap your dead ones for good ones, with a bit of folding money to lubricate the deal. We get charged £6/battery to change them (similar sizes), as she knows they will come back to them when they die to get cashed in...

    Is investing in Wall Street a good idea?

    If you want to buy shares, I can recommend h-l.com they have a good app, and relatively cheap trading costs, there are cheaper trading platforms but I get on with this one. Plus use your annual £20k allowance in a stock & shares ISA so any profits are tax free. It does worry me someone is...

    Are the RPA incentivised to withhold payments due?

    Are the RPA incentivised to withhold payments due?

    I have written back to them pleading my case, asking for them to re-consider as they are often making errors with our paperwork with which we have no re-course. Will wait and see what the reaction is, although am not hopeful. The point about filling out and then coming back a few days later is...

    Wooden sheep hurdles

    Not bust one yet, galvanised nails, (again assuming it's the same seller, certainly look the same) You get good at tying string to hold them together though, keep meaning to fit some metal loops for pins...... but never enough time in the year 😂

    Wooden sheep hurdles

    We brought ours from a saw mill that sold them on eBay, 6' hurdles were £6 I think (3 years ago and just looked they have gone up, assuming it's the same seller) good hurdles and couldn't make them myself for that. Depending on how many you want they might do a deal 🤷‍♂️...

    Who do you insure with?

    Just switched to Acre from F&M, saved 10% but expect that is them wanting us to bring us to the new company. I did say to both parties it would be best price wins. C B

    Combinables Price Tracker

    What @Brisel has said plus; Argie government has introduced some fairly lumpy export tariffs on agricultural commodities, I guess to reduce domestic prices as they are a very left wing government. C B
