    Farmer Roy's Random Thoughts - I never said it was easy.

    When I was about 10 or so I had an unexpected (face to face stuff) close encounter with an Adder, its rather put me off snakes.

    Could just mean there was only one there for a long time . . . That doesn't sound any better to me!!

    @hilux , have you got to the bottom of the problem now? It looks like you have had a pretty thorough investigation, were the nylon discs torn?

    State of your crops?

    Had a bit of a walkabout today. Looked at some Oats. I'm happy with these. Then on to some beans, they are still a bit small for my liking. Then on to some wheat. It's some Zyatt, planted in the last week of September. I'm quite pleased with it so far, its has 170kgs of N so far and due N3...

    Mouse plague in Aus....... what a mess.

    I also have no experience of a plague, but I am reminded of a conversation with my Grandmother when doing a school project. Following her husband who was working as a Mining Engineer, my grandmother lived and worked all around the world just after WW11, in some unusual and odd ball countries...

    There is a nylon plate on both sides, make sure you check both, if one has torn then the other either has, or is about to, they were not expensive from memory. The tear in the nylon is not always obvious so it might be necessary to dismantle the sandwich of couplings and the damper plate.

    Very good, Kubota own Kv and Vicon, so the machines are available in all 3 colours and branding. We had a Vicon RS XL, now up graded to a Kubota with weigh cells and a bigger hopper.

    Next to the gearbox on either side (under the spreading disc) there is a rubber or nylon disc, like a damper plate, its designed to take out the pto engagement snatch. Over time it tears and generally fails. Have a look there.

    Recommend Me A Milling Wheat

    Zyatt? We were growing Crusoe and like you found it a pain to thresh. In our experience it would fit your criteria, picture taken last week.

    Who's worried about the lack of rain?

    I think that I might have had it all!
