    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.

    MF250 clutch not disengaging gears

    No the pedal has no ‘feel’ or ‘bite point’ just up & down - feels disconnected but isn’t at least not externally. interesting about oil contam - noticed the engine was very low, so changed + new filter about a week ago - could this be the source? There’s no visible oil leak in the floor. So was...

    MF250 clutch not disengaging gears

    Got an MF250 that suddenly won’t change gear. Suddenly for no apparent reason clutch has basically stopped working. To get a gear I started it in gear & crashed the high/low lever in to gear, if you depress the clutch nothing happens, it keeps driving. All external linkages appear ok & working...

    Polytunnel for sheep

    I had the ‘high strength’ plastic mesh & it was crap. Replaced with sheep netting. Gutter is key to keeping dry but mine is very sheltered. I’d be wary of anything horizontal that they could climb up, & stick there heads thru the plastic but I’ve horned sheep so that may make it worse! I’d...

    Same Silver 100.4 hydraulic pump

    You’ll need to take the tank straps off, then you can move it out the way, you don’t have to completely remove it. It’s high up near the mud guard at the back of the tank. It’s quite covered up in pipes etc which makes it awkward to get at. You need to remove the top pipe - 3 Allen keys bolts...

    Chainsaw?

    We have an old Stihl 026 really good saw, also a 181 for hedging & little jobs. Wanted a new bigger saw & was put off by a mates stihl experience so went husky. Whilst it starts better than a Stihl & has loads of power it runs really badly & cuts out over & over. Dealer seems unable to fix -...

    Landini Alpine 85, Duetz or equivalent for steep land work

    http://www.tunstalltractors.com/shop/product/3183/Hurlimann/XA-100-GS/ I had a look at this the other day - cracking little machine. Loads of spec just in a smaller /lower frame. Tunstalls have a few XA’s in that would fit the job & budget. Good to deal with & nice tractors - def worth a phone...

    Classics Earning their keep.

    Fetched this little beast home for a friend yesterday. MF250 is cracking order, no rot on cab & so far everything seems to work! Loader spoils it a bit but is useful to have around the yard & come on/off really easy. It came from tunstalls. Will be having a fairly easy life but will be earning...

    Zetor/John Deere

    I’ve a Hurlimann & I like it, there’s quite few in the area & owners rate them?? Mines a lot older than what you’d be looking at but has aircon/airseat & powershift - none of which were on my wish list when searching & certainly weren’t on the fergies I was looking at! But they make a hell of a...

    Which four rotor tedder

    I think a 990 would be spot on. Takes no effort to drive the machine. I’m on the look out for a similar size classic tractor that could take on the job!

    Which four rotor tedder

    I went through this last year, upgrading from a haybob to Tedder. I didn’t mind the haybob & believe that do a decent enough job if careful but wanted more output. I aim for hay & sell quite a bit so wanted to be able to get on when the weathers good. I wanted a 4 rotor lely combi but they were...

    Hurlimann transmission switch

    Thanks for all the pointers I’ll check again tomorrow. I think the clutch switch is ok as the buzzer sounds if pedal isn’t pressed. Starter is sluggish so that’s a possibility.
