    Kuhn plough

    Don’t suppose anyone is breaking a Kuhn plough? My cross shaft broke on my 120 this morning. It’s a 50mm shaft part number 589009. Haven’t managed to even fund one to borrow, newer ploughs seem to be on a thicker shaft, which would work if the bolt on lugs where available too.

    Parts for ECE spreaders.

    The bearings have gone in a gearbox for one of the beaters on my ECE spreader. When we’ve got it to bits, a shaft that I new had a twist in it, now has cracks. I would like to replace this shaft, but can’t find one, as apparently parts for ECE spreaders are really hard to get now. I don’t...

    I have a selection of pipe that was used with a haylage tower we took down last year. It is much heavier duty than ventilating ducting. I think it is 17" but need to check exact measurements. Mixture of lengths, straight and bends. There will be some clamps to join them. The pieces with cut ends...

    Long pipe on Vac slurry tanker

    I’m thinking of hiring a bigger tanker for a couple of days to do some longer leads. But wouldn’t be able to get right up to the reception pit. Would probably only get within 25 yards. It is level ground and can keep reception pit full (out of a tower). Would using a long pipe (6”) make much...
