    New Cambridge Rolls

    Pass, all I know is that I was to avoid them with all wheelhills more than once the rolling ended up at an angle to the drilling to climb the hills (which was absolutely fine)

    New Cambridge Rolls

    Ah yea, duals not much of an option here as plenty of tights access with roadwork and not overly practical as could of been on the tanker the previous day, ripping forends for the drill with the sumo in the morning, rolling in the afternoon and then loading up and taking a load of straw home at...

    New Cambridge Rolls

    Slightly off topic, but what on earth do you guys drag these 12m rollers with?? I used to drag an 8.3m set of dalbo's with 215hp on 650's for rolling after the drill and had to be aware of how I worked fields otherwise the tractor would start digging, so I can only imagine how hard these wider...

    Claydon after tatties. Advice

    Unlikely, seen a 4m used after a relatively dry maize harvest and that was ok but only ok seed depth was all over the place as it has no contour following between the tines. After spuds it wouldn't surprise me to find some seed 4 or inches deep while others are on the surface. I like the concept...

    John Deere small baler

    Only thing I'd say is it is still possible to bale the needles as the old man had that happen on his old 456a, we think part of the reason was because the ram stop seized so didn't swing out when required so make sure it Moves in and out as the ram goes back and forth

    Idiots guide to Milwaukee.....

    Just curious, any idea on the difference between the fsag and the cag grinders as the latter one seem a lot more money for some reason? Either way it's going to be a step up from my 6yo, brushed grinder, which is starting to show its age having been used for everything from cutting wire up to...

    Why I hate electrics

    Well after spending too much time chasing bad joins in the power yesterday, I gave up with the close by earth and ran another wire back into the cab to an easily accessible earth point

    Why I hate electrics

    Would dearly love to but isn't worth it as I only want to put the grab on to clean 1 blooming shed out, and I think they would have a heart attack at the bodges others have done on the rest of the tractor

    Why I hate electrics

    New piece of wire for the earth from the 7 pin plug, the only change is where I earth to :scratchhead: If I put the tester from the positive in the 7 pin to the drilled hole I still get 5 volts, put it to the edge and I get 12, it's bizarre as it's 2 shiny bits of the same plate :banghead:

    Why I hate electrics

    Not sure if I'm missing something obvious or this is just the black magic that is electric having a laugh at me. Spent yesterday afternoon trying to sort out the 3rd sevice on the old loader tractor, got as far as replacing most of the botched and corroded wiring as far as the 7 pin plug which...

    Chainsaws

    I see there were a few options mentioned previously, but I keep looking at sthil ms170's (considering how cheap they are new) as a better alternative for carrying in the truck rather than the 032, but always liked huskys when I've used them. So what would the actual equivalent to an ms170 be...

    Loading shovel v handler

    Know a farm milking over 1000 cows using a cat shovel for the feeding, from what I remember it took a fair bit of work to get the 3 ram shear grab to work on it as the centre ram would hit the massive z linkage when open and they have to cut everything out and then use a toe tip to load the...
