    Defender chassis

    Chassis has been collected by the garage doing the work and they have split her today. Eeeeeek. Thankfully the only extra thing they have found we didn't know about is a knackered fuel filler pipe so gonna get that replaced as well.

    Defender chassis

    After some opinions, my 1998 defender 110 300 tdi went for mot today and I knew I was gonna be pushing it with chassis rot on the rear cross member. Me and my wife was hoping to get another year or so before we swapped the chassis. I’ve spoken to one garage who said when they change them it’s...

    Best auto footbath

    Boumatic one here. Can set the refresh rate on the filler or pc have it set here to refresh every hour during milking. Only down side is waiting for it to empty on a quick milking or it’s empty before you finish milking on a slow one. Worth its weight in gold though saves a lot of hassle.

    Wartime threshing memories

    Would be good if someone could collate and make into a book all the old story’s and even some modern ones. A chap I work with is full of them he could write his own series of books, his words no one wants to listen to an old fool like me. I said you would be surprised who would read it. Like...

    New Defender

    Test drive new one today and it’s lush, agree with Clive it’s not a defender though. Be better if it had a new name, bit like when ford went from escort to focus it they had called it an escort still it wouldn’t work. Will have to wait a few years for it to be in my price league though. 300tdi...

    A calf’s second feed

    I’m guessing if didn’t treat any scours then system must be working so guessing the farmer used a total of 10ml of nuflor which is a couple of calves. Well done!
