    Loader bucket question for a friend

    They look nice!! I also have 80 power brackets in stock. If anyone needs any brackets just PM me, they'll be cheaper than eBay prices which are dearer due to the fees.

    Dividing grain with big bags of fertiliser

    We did this for years before getting some concrete lego bricks. Row of 600kg bags with sheets of ply either side and lashed the sheets together over the bags. Not perfect but it did a job.

    Friend of mine has just got a Milwaukee battery one, reckons it's a brilliant tool but a tad on the heavy side.
