    The biggest Wheat Ear challenge

    A bit of fun here. While out pulling Ryegrass this afternoon I could see that there are a few anomalous wheat plants, usually taller plants with a bigger ear. So I started to look for the biggest one I could find. Here it is, a Grafton Wheat ear at 14.5cm tall, Can you find a bigger one?

    Merlo Telehandler

    After a couple years of pondering we are seriously thinking about getting a telehandler. Spotted a Merlo P8.7KT that looks like it would fit the bill. Its a 2004 machine with about 4500hrs on it.

    Entrade, Environmental Offsetting and Trading

    We have been approached through our local FWAG people to see if we are interested in getting involved in this. In a nutshell it would appear that we as farmers would agree to do certain things at the farm level e.g over wintered cover crops, hedge row work, fencing water courses, and various...

    Hydraulic Top Links

    On various previous threads other people have mentioned having / using hydraulic top links, its something that I have previously considered, but regarded as a "nice to have" but not necessary. However, its something that I have been giving a bit more thought to just recently, at the moment it...

    Used Oil Filters

    What do people do with their used oil filters? If they have been drained and are empty can they go in the scrap metal bin, or are they classed as contaminated as they have been used. (I'm talking about ones that have been left to drain & empty for ages so are used but not fresh and oily and...

    Cleaning a Combine With a Compressor

    We are trying to buy a compressor to mostly use to clean the combine on a daily basis. When I look at the various ones for sale their cfm value is usually stated, but what is enough to provide enough pressure to make a good and quick job? I have found a couple of nice Ingersol Rand/Doosan...

Expecting to find some thing like a stone or a twig, we emptied the hopper and had a look, but we could find nothing, the metering unit was still jammed though. Alter...

    Wired Magnetic LED Light Set

    I am looking for a set of wired LED lights, magnetic preferably, that I can quickly put on and detach from the back of trailers, drills etc. The difficulty arises when I want the set to have the load resister already wired into the wiring of the set, so that the tractor recognises there is a set...

    Belshina Tyres

    Hey All, Have been quoted for some Belshina tyres, but I've never heard of them, looked on the internet and it seams they come from Russia. They are quite a bit cheaper than others, so obviously there is a reason. Has any one had anything to do with them. Good, bad, indifferent, all...
