Strip grazing the fields here throughout the season, i use a couple of Rutland 9v enegisers, an esb 137 and a very old 127.
I've read to keep away from the button switched Rutland energizers, as they don't last. But as Rutland have been taken over I'm not sure if the new range.
I've come acros...
Hopefully this year, I will be replacing an old hay shed. Living on top of a hill @1200ft it's a windy and have trees planted around the farm yard for shelter.

I have an old komatsu pc60-5 here, dosn't do many hours year, but its a handy machine to have about the place. The track chains are shagged to say the least, with quite a few master pins, and some more with washers welded on the chains to stop the pins falling out ? (previous owners work)
Just venting my anger again !

What's the legal view of carrying a load in the back of a double cab pickup with the tailgate down ?
