    Which of the two front mower

    Yeah not their bed but all the geometry is out. The bushes on the linkage on the mower side wear out faster than you can grease them every day. The problem is the grease just comes out and can’t stay in the joint as there’s no seal or so to hold it in. I know of two mowers at 2/3 year old with...

    Which of the two front mower

    Mchale paint work is terrible, no undercoat, mchale bed has been a problem here, just buy the Kuhn and forget about the other. We just swapped ours for two Krones, the front one is the pull type so will see how we go with it but not heard any bad reports

    TM 150 2002

    @agrotron keep the gearbox calibrated if you get it nice and warm one day when you have a few min spare. I have a few hour on it each year and do a few oil leaks on it what’s easy to do. The only leak at the min is on the hydraulic pump but that looks a big job to sort so I’ve just left it...

    TM 150 2002

    Build quality was terrible like the early tm 155 up to about 2005 wasn’t the best. Friend had a 2003 tm155 and nearly every month it would get more oil leaks/ it kept blowing a pipe off so we had a steel pipe made to cure it and it still leaked. Back end would get really hot and gearbox was...

    TM 150 2002

    Hi folks, Yeah the tm is still going strong. We have had a lot of new bits for it but it’s wear and tear items other than one thing when we did the synchros in the back end. We did the head on it as a precaution, new dromone hitch and general bits like alternator an air con pump. She came with...

    Paper waste and sewage sludge

    There’s no ideal way for us to do it. Our neighbour helps us with jobs and required straw for his animals do we supply him and get machines and labour or hay back in return so just looking for alternatives to put back on the land.

    Paper waste and sewage sludge

    We sell all the straw to customers already so need all the straw we can get for them and they use the muck for their own land

    Old tennant won’t leave

    The animals are that bad that he sent two to the market and they was 11 month old each and they made 70 quid each. We are the bps claimant as of the start of the last month but he just rents a few of the sheds but the landlord wanted us to have the whole farm to tidy it up and get this tennant...

    Old tennant won’t leave

    It’s all a nightmare, I’ve got tackle outside which wants to come in, stuff what needs cleaning and no where to do it as we left the previous place before and stuck to our side of the bargain. We are now living out of friends yards with bits of stuff here and there while we wait patiently. It’s...

    Old tennant won’t leave

    Already thought of this but if I was seen getting them down the road I’d probably be the one in the wrong etc

    Old tennant won’t leave

    My issue is that the landlord wants it easy which I can’t blame him etc as this is a sh!t show. The land agent isn’t putting any pressure on him either so they aren’t really pulling their weight. I think his holding number won’t be linked to the farm but I’m not sure. Is there any way I can see...

    Old tennant won’t leave

    Good evening folks. I have a problem on a tenancy we have just taken on and I don’t know how to go about getting the outcome needed. I’m hoping that someone will have some bullet proof answer which I can use to get me where we need to be. The problem is that we took a farm on at the start of...

    Paper waste and sewage sludge

    It needs something more than a cover crop to get something in it. It’s not been ploughed for about 15 years and we thought it might plough up abit rough and it ploughed up easy and was like dust so just thought I’d try get some stuff to give it some soil structure
