Interested on thoughts about a discordon.
Rear packer wear , how do you know if it's fecked , all packers wear out eventually it's just a case of can you refurbish or is it a scrap bin .
We had a demo 20 years ago of a 3.2 m , pulled it with a 7810 , can't remember how well it coped or what...
I can't be one to complain because we had a lovely 7mm last weekend but the wind soon took it away.
But had hopes for this weekend tho forecasters have put us just on the side of any of the proper rainfall.
So who has had meaningful amount of rainfall,,,,,,,,, 2mm so far and hoping for more
So we are putting a set of duals on our 240 puma for this spring.
We used to run duals a few years back but went for wider tyres when we changed tractors, we felt that the bigger wheels on bigger tractors would make putting them on and off difficult
So whose made a gadget to make the same...
I have a couple of rain gauges around and about but had a look at my gauge last night and it measured 10 mm, but I know that as most of the rain we had yesterday was of the horizontal variaty I can't see it being measured ,,,,,, how do they measures horizontal rain?
With out treading on Rich Beach's redrilling thread which is I suppose is for those of you who were brave enough to wander into the fields with drills and seed .
This thread is for those of us who have land which was cultivated and were to from here
So before last night's 10 mm if rain I went...
Now the easier ground is being drilled, I thought it would be interesting to find out what has astually been planted by end of today and then perhaps do the same again in a weeks time
So my scores on the doors are ,,,,,,,, rape a total failure,,,,,,,, grass seed drilled and coming...
So who's getting concerned, with 70 mm in the rain gauge since Sunday and a lot more to come over the week I certainly am.
If your on free draining soil then probably not but I reside on sticky red marl which can take an age to dry out.
Most of the ground is moved and was in good condition...
Okay some idiot has got to do it ,,,,,,,,,,,,, :-)
So a well timed T3 went on my wheats , mainly group 1 , between the 3rd and 6th of June
30 % had Teb .75. + Mancozeb 1.5
The other 70% had Proline + Teb ( rate not to hand)
With a damp humid outlook for the next couple of weeks...
Just been to see a field of W Barley which I was worried that it might succumb to having a lie down but glad to see it’s still stood up ,,,,,, for the moment
So who hasn’t been so lucky today after some pretty heavy rain
So we have a Case Puma 240 , I like to run her light as possible for top cultivations and drilling but need some extra weight to get power onto the ground to pull the trailed 3m trio
Okay I could put wheel weights on but I can see that once they are on they stay on , she will have a 900 kg...
