    Mole Catchers

    We had a mess here, bought 40 traps from a local who was giving up , watched some YouTube, talked to some “experts” and had a go. Caught 98 this year, clears some bad patches up but plenty more to do. I really enjoy trapping the little sods, it’s quite fascinating. Definitely too wet at the...

    Best machine for grassland overseeding?

    Had great results with Vaderstad just cutting Seward and dropping seed in , drilled it twice at half rate then rolled...... Vad can travel pretty fast and gets over ground.

    vegan protests at marts

    I’m surprised they don’t take a day trip to beautiful West Wales and hold up a Mart there 🤔. Or perhaps their vegan principles don’t run to getting the sort of welcome I suspect they would be on the receiving end of .....😂😂

    Scrambler motor bike as a Christmas present

    Helmet, boots, gloves and body armour absolute minimum ... non negotiable! ! Starting with a trials bike is a great idea.... learn some basic bike handling skills and gain some confidence......and hope all this doesn’t develop into road bikes.... It’s a drug 😍

    Classics Earning their keep.

    The problem is that it won’t go into high range and the splitter doesn’t work.... it’s a very clean tractor under 8 k hours so seems right to fix it properly. Gone to Ibbetts.....

    Getting oily sludge out of cooling system?

    We are going to try a new heat exchanger on our Merlo 40.7 engine. The cooling system must have a load of gunk and sludge in it. One suggestion was to put washing powder in with water to move the oil ? any thoughts welcome.
