    Electric tractor build

    Great project, I'm guessing you are getting away with the low power requirement due to the low speeds. Since the panel output nominally equals the motor requirement I'm guessing it should run for free as along as the sun is shining. That's almost as good as the efficiencies quoted by the Fendt...

    JF Combine Harvester

    Does it give a good sample, much losses over the back? Not a contractors machine but cant see why there's not a niche for them as a farmers machine. A combine is a bit of an investment for a small acreage.

    Looks in good nick as well. How many acres did you cover with it? What tractor is on the trailer?

    Me and my B275 Again!

    I'd say you got a good deal. I did the same with a B-275 about 4 years ago. the engine was a bare block with all the bits in boxes but it had a good set of tinwork. I paid similar money and considered it a fair deal.

    Queens jubilee beacon

    I prepared ours a few weeks ago. Hoping it will be seen for a few miles around when I celebrate her majesties reign tonight. And before anybody asks the diggers not included in the bonfire 🤣

    I made one with an automatic syringe, a drench bottle and a stick with some sponge on the end. I’ll get a pic when I get back to the shed.

    dump trailer

    No idea about the type of paint. Mine is something close to Ford blue but I asked for that colour. Not sure what the standard colour is. From memory I think the floor was 8mm and sides 6mm but I speced a thicker floor. Either 10 or 12 mm. Mines a flat bottomed one with ramps stored underneath...

    dump trailer

    I have one about 3 or 4 years old now. Solid trailer with plenty of steel but paint is poor to be fair. Mine ha spent most of its life under cover albeit sometimes a Dutch barn but is looking scabby now. The paint looked thick enough but I think surface prep was a bit lacking. Still a good...

    quick fixes, bodges and creations

    Looks well. Any plans to add a ram to flick up the tines? Or maybe leave it manual and you can secure them in the folded position with a bit of baler twine keeping yourself safely in this thread! Are you going to weld caps on the uprights?
