    Looking for wisdom, failing that ‘quick bodges and creations’. Elderly but functional slurry tanker is beginning to implode. If everything but the tank wasn’t working fine I’d probably scrap the thing but as it only gets occasional use for 3-4 loads at a time the sensible options are limited...

    Filling quad with petrol from Jerry can.

    Is it just me that finds it almost impossible to fill the quad fuel tank without drips, spills or other general fuel wastage? The tanks aren’t easily accessible and visibility is limited. Quad in question happens to be a Honda but they’re all similar. I usually get a couple of Jerry cans of...

    The never ending nice swath thread..

Rowing up with a twin rotor rake leaves a pretty swath but even running at 300rpm on the pto most rakes will leave a narrow, high swath where grass is light rather than a shallow, wide swath which would suit a wagon or...

    Making tax digital software....

    Looks like vat returns need to go on the ‘new’ system. Plan is to keep our simple spreadsheet system and use bridging software to submit returns. We run on excel. Anyone have any recommendations? And yes, this month one is due. Thanks.
