    Small drill hopper

    We have a CO 6 Horsch drill. I want to swap the hopper to a smaller unit as it’s only for OSR and we may also be able to mount a fert tank in that space as well. We will probably just fabricate a new tank but thought I would ask here in case some one has an old hopper that’s getting in the way...

    Bateman rb35 re furb

    We have a 6500hr 9yr old 32m rb35. It doesn’t do a lot of road work and is only on combinable cropping. It does liquid fert so booms are getting a little rusty. Bateman came out and looked at it to see what they would do to refurb it but we are struggling to get a result. Possibly misplaced...

    Disc mower for JD2140

    Thanks for the reply. We will only need to cut the once a season. There’s only 30 acres to do at the moment. The tractor will have floatation tyres on which I appreciate will compromise the grass but we can’t leave tracks. Can you get a disc mower that cuts and drops the grass to one side?

    Disc mower for JD2140

    Sadly I need to remove it. I like the look of the Orkel direct cut in another thread.

    Disc mower for JD2140

    I have an old jd2140 2wd. I need to cut some rough grass and hopefully bale it. Ideally would like to mow and leave it in a row to bale. It’s on soft ground so nothing to big but ideally would like to run two mown widths into one and then round bale it. What sort of mower would be best? As you...

    LEAF MARQUE premiums

    Thankyou. I thought that was the case but some one was trying to say different.

    LEAF MARQUE premiums

    There used to be a premium for OSR grown under the LEAF Marque protocols. Is there any still available?

    Loading shovel v handler

    Can’t deny the jcb has been a great machine. It’s just when you get out of that and straight into the Volvo you see the difference.

    Loading shovel v handler

    JCB seem to wear faster than the industrial alternatives. We have a 426 on around 9500hrs, had the centre pivot shimmed a few times and the pump renewed at 9000hrs. We also have a Volvo lh70 which is 8 years younger. It’s in a different class. Built really well. Just the ad blue system that lets...

    Big ćontractor in Oxfordshire selling up,

    I seem to remember Baler went for £21k. The front reelers made £8400 and £9800 I think.

    Big ćontractor in Oxfordshire selling up,

    It was interesting he didn’t want to stand on so I assume he thought the price would come down, but must have had an underbidder running them up

    Big ćontractor in Oxfordshire selling up,

    It would be interesting to know where some of it was going. The 3 tankers made very good money. Someone obviously had a job lined up to go to and couldn’t wait for delivery.

    Farming Equipment and Technology Fund

    Just looking through the fund to see if anything fits with what we need. There is an option for a control panel for a continuous grain drier. As these come with specific criteria which we need to meet. The control system is easy enough but the awkward part is it needs to be accessed by a mobile...

    Steel bushes

    I need a few steel bushes for a machine. They are just over 16mm ID so that they can take an M16 bolt. OD needs to be 22mm/23mm. Width or depth is 15mm. Where would be best to get something like this?

    Spreading chicken (layer) muck accurately at 12m - is it doable?

    You’ll not get to the 36m tramline width with any spreader. 24m doable. If your at 36 then split to 18m. If your CTF and want to run at 12m then you will get further with a load and so run each wheeling less.

    Spreading chicken (layer) muck accurately at 12m - is it doable?

    The n sensor can’t really fill in the gaps as it’s altering the full 24m width. That said with the right operator on a decent spreaderyou won’t need to worry about filling in the gaps.

    Spreading chicken (layer) muck accurately at 12m - is it doable?

    Can be done easily. We used to spread it to 24m with bunning vertical machines with sludge augers. Can now go wider with horizontal machines with discs. Is it worth considering composting the layer muck with anything else to make a better product to top dress with, no smell, no scorch etc.
