    Does a carrier in standard format of 2 x discs and then press level ground well? Would it level off after potatoes? This is an older machine (2009) so there’s no levelling board or front Harrow frame. It’s available for £8,500 and would go straight to work. No frame cracks and discs are all...

    Crop establishment prices

    I think some people are going mad. Fertilisers through the roof. Crop gross margins are falling yet I’m seeing people out with ploughs, power harrows, disc/tine combinations, presses. They are burning thousands of litres of fuel and the wearing metal cost must be terrible. I’ve seen one local...

    My mate runs a beef and sheep farm. One of his neighbours has glamping pods which border my friends farm. Yesterday morning he gets a very irate couple in his yard going mad that his cows have been having s*x in front of their children. Apparently they’d gone mad at the glamping pod site owner...

    Looking for a 9m telescopic

    Hi, looking for a 3.0-4.0t loader with 9m reach and pickup hitch. Budget is only £25,000 as it’ll only be doing 300 hours a year as a spare machine. All attachments are JCB presently but we can swap headstocks so the machine doesn’t need to be JCB. Anybody know of anything please?
