    BKT or Alliance tyres

    Hi, any feed back on either of these tyre brands being better than the other please? Within £20 of each other. 16.9 R34’s on a fairly low use stock tractor - hence the ‘budget’ choice.

    Hurlimann transmission switch

    My Hurlimann XT908 has stopped starting, gradually got worse over the last week. I’m sure it’s the shuttle transmission safety switch - does anyone know where it’s located? I’ve been underneath & can’t find anything! Google’s not been any use. Think it’ll be the same as a Same Silver? Any help...

    Pottinger HIT540N

    I’m fancying a Tedder to replace haybob. Don’t have a huge work load for it but mow with a drum mower & in older hay type meadows this leaves a swath that the haybob struggles to tear apart evenly. I make haylage & jay & have a nice side line selling to horse people so want to make quality bales...

    Ive found an MF810 loader for sale at a reasonable price. Does anyone know or have experience of 1 of these loaders on a 290?

    Concrete sealer

    Please can I have recommendations for a sealing product for a newly laid concrete floor in a barn. Won't see that much traffic but will be a workshop/ emergency lambing shed overflow if the weathers crap. Don't want the floor to dust up all the time or oil leaks etc to soak in. Cheers!

    RPA Sheep Inspection

    I got a Fone call this morning from an RPA inspector telling me they'll be coming to do an inspection on Monday. I understand they want to see movement licenses/ holding register & scan sheep ear tags + a total count - is there anything else they'll need? This all seems a bit pointless when they...
