    Cyclists. Again. Again.

    This is the second time I’ve had a cyclist want to inspect the front of a tractor that I’m driving. Coming back through the back lanes after tipping a load of dung,went round blind bend and cyclist going way too fast and bounces off my front wheel and falls in the hedge. I managed to stop he...

    Is it April 1st ??

    :scratchhead::banghead::banghead:I kid you not. The driving test is now going to include a section on your knowledge of how to use a satnav!! Here is the kicker though. They are dropping the reversing round the corner test! Many can't reverse as it is.

    Hospital food!

    Right, I'm in for the foreseeable and two meals in I'm pleasantly impressed. Lunch was egg and bacon sandwich with ice cream to follow. Ice-cream was made by local farm/ice-cream manufacturers. Yes not in fancy packaging but that's fine. Tea omelet mash and veg. Tasty. Pudding caramel sundae...

    Cost of putting power lines underground.

    I have asked Western power to put 1span of 11kv lines under ground. It supplies my farm and a bungalow that is in different ownership but that is allied to the farm. I had the guy out last year and discussed with him various options for new supplies to our campsite and the burying of that span...

    IH 454 seat

    Just bought a 454 and the seat feels too high. We used to have the 60 hp version with the 165 engine and I don't remember the seat being that high or suspended in any way. Can anybody confirm my suspicions. TIA

    How do I get this off.

    Just bought a ih 454 with a quicke 2560 loader on. I think I'm missing the legs to take it off. There is this frame on the loader but it doesn't seem enough. And these holes look like they receive something I'm sure somebody must have had one. Thanks in advance

    Smart phone for ag use.

    Thinking of coming into the 21st century and getting a smart phone. Possibly thinking Nokia lumia entry level but is it tough enough. Don't need to many whistles and bells just the option of uploading to tff,a screen that can be read outside and it to be relatively tough. Needs to be able to...

    BBC News.Whats happening in the UK?!?

    Is it just me or is anybody else tired of seeing what's going on outside the UK ie Syria,Ebola,Ukraine etc etc.It might be interesting to find out what's happening in the UK for a change, not the national stories even, maybe a regional roundup of each regions main story.
