    Weaving GD user thread

    I did wonder whether or not the discs could be worn quite a bit further past that point. I'm only about half worn at the moment before my larger discs are small disc size, but good to know and I'll keep that slightly larger than new little discs in mind.

    How far can you wear down the discs before changing?

    Cordless Chainsaw

    A lack of good useful tool storage space seems to be a far too common short comming on telehandlers.

    Battery rejuvenation

    I wasn't advocating it being done in those working conditions. Just thinking along the Reduce>Reuse>Recycle principal.

    Battery rejuvenation

    Are there any firms that properly remake tired batteries? I'm guessing it's probably cheaper to buy a brand new battery than to remake an old one to a high standard in the uk?

    I stick to the book so far on a 4.8m, 4800 for larger seeds and iirc 3500 for small seeds. I pick somewhere between the two for medium seeds. Not noticed much, if any, coming out of the air bleeds, unless an outlet is blocked. My tine drill is a converted accord system and was driving the fan...

    The positive thread

    Im sure I know people that would moan about having nothing to moan about.

    The positive thread

    Being able to see something I've done physically grow is why I farm.

    The positive thread

    Possibly some of the issue is that so much of what we have to be positive about seems so mundane? On the whole, plants and animals have a natural tendency to grow. Which is a good thing, though not necessarily that exciting.

    Project Zetros

    Do the police bother to give a detailed explanation to go with tweets like that, of what was specifically wrong rather than a vague statement.

    The positive thread

    Nice idea to start a positive thread in the Agricultural Matters section. I rarely look in this section of tff after coming to the conclusion that it was mostly just for rants. I'm just going to take any attempts to be positive in Agriculture Matters as a good thing.

    I was thinking of buying or making a few scrapers to go on the drill and see how much difference they do make on a few coulters before buying a full set.

    I know what you mean, but a lot of the soul here seems to go through a sticky stage as it gets wetter before it will smear. This is drilling today, no smearing in the slots or trouble with the discs, but the soil is building up and steadily applying the breaks.

    CTF

    Contractors are one thing. The next door neighbours who also make some little bales for us as well is arguably a little more awkward. They certainly aren't bad like some other neighbours were though.

    With a trailed GD, caddy at least, if there is any side slope then it will crab to some extent. The steeper the side slope the greater the carb. Having the transport tyres lifted off the ground full makes the effect worse. Drilling deep for beans so more of the weight was on the pivoting discs...

    PTO shaft safety project

    I think it was Bare-co who had a go at making a pto shaft cover that would slide back so your could grease them in place. The trouble was that a guard for an existing shaft was similar to a complete new shaft and guard. Make the guards much cheaper and readily available, whilst not being made...

    Surely the commercial satnav systems have a look ahead function for turning an implement on before it gets to the unapplied area? Has anyone tried the bolt on scrapers for the GD coulter tyres? How effective were they? In only slightly marginal conditions, I've had soil and straw picking up...

    accord drill markers

    No trouble to find lots of magnets online. Finding ones about the right size made take some time. Unless they are obviously broken up or missing, then they are highly unlikely to be the problem.

    What did you build over Christmas 2020

    It probably helps a lot if you justify the price of the Lego version against hauling a full size D11

    Tank slapped drilling on RTX?

    I would expect a tank slapping action to be from the steering response being set too aggressive. I'm not familiar with that system, but there are usually quite a few other settings, which are not normally adjusted once set the first time, that can be tweaked to help in situations where just...
