    Sanderson plantman 2 1988

    I have a Plantman 2 264 1989. Truckmasters at Skegness told me to fill up the spout on the side with ATF until its full, there is no sight glass or dipstick. I only knew it was low because it was sluggish pulling away.

    Asparagus is very deep rooted. Yes, in fact is a job for this week to get a RoundUp on. Fern has been already removed. Hand weeding isn't really practical on a large acreage

    All the cultivations and bed making/ridging are mechanised, the harvesting is done by hand. Hand weeding in the first year or two if they've got out of hand, ground preparation pre-planting is key!

    We are looking for any quantity of pumpkins - size, shape, colour not important. Or contacts of growers who may be able to help. Many thanks,
