    Most Accurate Muck Spreader

    I got talked in to trying that once, after I shovelled a few loads through the spreader I soon learned to give that job a miss.... But maybe @CPF has special chicken muck?

    Old farmer's saying's..... do you know any ?

    You pay to learn, boy.... it’s one that my grandfather used to regularly say to my father apparently and one I've heard myself from my father, a lot! Rarely is there a cockup, disaster, misguided purchase etc that hasn’t cost money, time, blood sweat and tears, or a combination of all of those...

    Project Zetros

    That wouldn’t work on a drawbar trailer with imposed load on the hitch though, unless you had the actual hitch upside down? But I dare say that’s not recommended, and wouldn’t feel right tbh. They get away with it on that dolly trailer as there’s only the weight of the drawbar itself pushing...

    That is my old Big A 2600. she was good to me, broke my heart when the guy I‘d sold it to told me he’d cut her in half :cry:.....RIP VVF139X....

    Would you not be better to stick with the 22.5’s but have a taller tyre? Giving a bit more sidewall? bit more flex then and might lend itself to running CTI at some point?

    I’m also expecting you to be fitting a Chelsea PTO to the gearbox? Another feature of running the Allison auto is a constant PTO drive, although as we’ve discussed before, it’s not quite a constant rpm from the PTO and I’ve obviously overcome that in my own way, but you’ve never had an issue so...

    Anyone fabricating with Hardox?

    As with all my projects at the moment, time slipped by and I didn’t get chance to do anything about upgrading the spinner deck or getting new vanes made up in Hardox or something similar. So the mild steel experimental vanes, that I made up last year, have done my entire season! 😳 They had a...

    JCB Flasher Relay

    As far as I know, there is no conventional flasher relay fitted now. The indicators are controlled through the dash unit and its associated integral Ecu. it sounds ridiculous, but that what I was told when I questioned why my 2013 machine was misbehaving with LED trailer lights. It actually had...
