    Financing a secondhand tractor

    If your a one man band like myself an extra tractor is still probably cheaper than an extra body/wage to find. If this frees up your time then all the better. Although money wise it might not be the best use but whats the point in having money if it doesn't make your life easier/better

    New toy day

    Some kind of home made cap? Or can you buy off the shelf? A good cross shape with the full whack would beat most setups

    New toy day

    Anyone use this/a post knocker for a wood splitter? Could make justifying it a bit easier 🤔🤔

    This must have transformed your life from using the single rota rake. What acerage do you need to justify a double tho.. 🤔 very jealous

    Jeremy's Treibewagen

    No doubt twice the price now with steel cost but could you give a rough idea on cost? How does walking them in it go when going round corners etc is there much tripping etc or just go at walking pace?

    Farm digger uses

    This looks a quick way to unload/handle bales. Would it be much of a job to have a bale grab, do you plug into breaker line presuming it has that?

    Farm digger uses

    This is the kind of thing I'm thinking off. If it's parked up in a good spot must be handy for lifting. What kind of height/weight can u lift? Was thinking with a set of pallet forks would be good for loading/unloading lorry's even

    Farm digger uses

    Yes timeliness of a lot of these jobs is worth a bit I'd say such as getting stuck. All ring fenced here so would just be tracking about however slowly. If your not on the hire clock then does that matter if it takes a while? Handier bucket with no teeth?

    Farm digger uses

    Thinking of getting a 13/14 tonne ish digger. Is there anyone running anything similar that have found "extra" uses for it rather than just digging. Obviously loading muck would be a start but what about handling bales, loading bags of fert/seed, putting in fence posts etc. Probably just looking...
