    Setup plough legs

    Ga Henk. Ploegen buigen tijdens het werk maar kunnen worden gerepareerd. Morgen is beter.

    Personally, not impressed by all that shiny stuff! Henk has just 0.3mm deviation on his leg but 10 times that amount on his frame. New shares suck!

    Setup plough legs

    If the vintage classes 'here' plough at 10”, classic 10.5 to 11”, without cheating the Rules of 6" minimum depth, that 6x10 cross section of soil has to go somewhere before the next slice arrives irrespective of board type or push or pitch or level.

    Setup plough legs

    My mistake to use Latin here! Sorry, aber die Leute hier kennen nur TS59, aber sie wollen einen TS86 und auch FR ist ein anderer Pflug. Wenn Sie das Vorderteil nach rechts bewegen, wird der Pflug größer, wenn 12 "perfekt für 6" sind.

    Henk's fig 35 works for me! Moving the front leg outside the frame (to the right) widens the rear slice, QED. Also the Rules state 6" min depth, so a narrow plough gives less inversion viz for a 10" plough, arctan 6/10 = 31 degrees or 149 degrees of inversion (if the slice remains unbroken)...

    Classics Earning their keep.

    This made me nostalgic to when there were lots of makes (and choice). Pink Dania, white hydro Kodel, silver Claas, Lely/FH fold in the middle, 3 wheel Viking, Activ, twin engined Marshall, Claeys, Ransomes, etc. The electric table lift and rotary screen (hen food on the left) of a MH 726 bagger...

    Tractor Pulling Royal show,

    Around that time there was a Field Marshall fitted with a Weylode device to show the pull force.

    The BMB President was famous for not having Ackerman, but it wasn't really a tractor! I also remember the fuss John Deere made over their 13 degree 4wd front steering angles so I copy more pages from my bible!

    What a super story! Regarding RAF, I once saw AV8 on a car in Hay on Wye.

    Remember oil-bath air cleaners? Long life and cheap to run.

    Sorry for the confusion! With either 2 or 4wd, the inside, front wheel has to SWIVEL more than the outer. Naturally they will rotate at different speeds (or break a diff-lock).

    At the risk of being anal, fitting the axle back to front would confuse the Ackerman effect where the inside wheel has to turn more than the outside wheel at a corner.

    The second pair, SE, you mad cow! Drivearchive says Aberdeen/Banffshire (?) and has other geography mistakes like West Ham being in Reading, Peterborough in Lanarkshire and Cambridgeshire, etc.

    Is converting an agricultural field into allotments a change of use in terms of requiring planning permission ?

    As an allotment holder inside the M25, I worked it out to be 17 full plots per acre at £30 pa each for a secure site with keys and water standpipes.
