    Most reliable/ strongest quad bike for farm use.

    There is a JCB groundhog for sale nearby. Year 2009 and only 800 hours on it. If it is in good shape the price is fair. Is a JCB any good or is a kubota or JD far superior? It is equipped with a Lombardini. Noisy little engines but quite reliable I think? Is the CVT of a JCB easy to replace or...

    I see some replies of people with gators and kubota rtv's. We have a contract with a municipality for salt spreading on narrow roads and bicycle roads, and we are thinking of using a Kubota RTV or something similar. I have a Holder C3.42 with a spreader. Really compact and I can get in every...

And what width of the mesh and the distance between channels should be best? I see both really narrow mesh and wide mesh panels. Goal is a combination of woodchip...

    Drying woodchips and possibly grain

    Okay thanks! We don’t need to keep up with the combine. But sometimes it is getting wet early in the evening while the harvesting still goes quite good. So if we can dry a part we have a kind of buffer. The grain isn’t stored but goes immediately to the buyer, who charge drying costs for...

    Drying woodchips and possibly grain

    Hi all, I come from the Netherlands and check this forum regularly. I was looking for some advice of using biomass to dry woodchips and possibly grain or barley when we have a wet summer. Last year summer was quite cold and wet so it wasn't easy to harvest dry... This winter we move to my...
