    Recommend me a basic welder...

    Would like a simple welder for the garage... nothing fancy, oul fella has a decent spec one at his abode but it's becoming a pain in the rear end having to relocate everything for the occasional run or two of weld if needed. Seems to be an endless selection on line but I don't hav a clue what...

    Mitsi Outlander users...

    On the look out for a replacement vehicle at the minute and thinking of going looking at a few of these in the new year, not new, probably 2013 to 2015 age bracket. Think they can tick most of the boxes we need at the minute... 7 seats, bit of towing capacity (I only need to be able to drag...

    Which 200hp tractor for 35-40k

    I remember watching as a fella somehow managed to get a 6480 from what must have been the high 4s into the low 3s going down hill, it was not a pretty sight or sound seeing the bac of the tractor skip down the road as the tyres tried to grip, thankfully it wasn't pulling anything and never...

    ground source vs air souce for new build

    That sounds very far fetched!, our ground source heating has only really kicked in this month, and usually is running very lightly by April again so is only drawing heat for 8 hrs a day for 6 months of the year at the most. I thought ground source actually drew most of its heat requirements from...

    Ford 4610 lass of traction

    Filling bac tyres with water might help, we find it a massive help for grip on our 35. u say muddy conditions, r u sure the weight on the back is not dragging in the dirt (ie not high enough off the ground), as this will take a fair bit of the weight of the bac wheels while also forcing them to...

    Hedge Cutting Dangers

    If I meet a headgecutter when out cycling... I stop!!?, make eye contact wit the driver and pretty much straight away they will stop, or I maybe i have to wait 30sec for him to get to a break in the hedge and he will stop there. I have never had to pass a cutter still cutting. Nobody had to tell...

    Pto generators...

    Pondering the idea of investing in a generator. Its not going to be used that often, but it's too late looking for one when it is needed. The (hopeful) lack of use is why I am steering towards a pto driven one. There will always be a tractor here available to drive it, it makes it mobile if...

    ground source vs air souce for new build

    Ground sourse here and loving it, averaging 550€/yr to run, heating 250sqm house built in 2017. 600m of pipe in the ground about 4-5ft down. Not recommended to plant (trees, shrubs) over the pipes, but we put the pipes in the field beside house so not an issue. Pump runs default on night rate...

    NI / ROI border - again...

    I struggle to see the actual economic significance of the border in all of this!?, what is actually going to change when the UK leaves?, they say different custom rules regulations and standards will apply, but what that will actually be?, any why?, are the EU or UK going to suddenly drop...

    Robot Lawnmowers

    A house not far away has one and they hav it mowing right up to the edge of an A-road, dunno how it hasn't been lifted. It does seem to do a good job, but I passed it a few mornings ago early and it was out cutting away wit a dew on the grass, could see its path thru the dew and it does not like...

    New chainsaw for £80

    Not sure on the chainsaw, we hav a handy stihl ms250 which has been faultless. The wee sharpener tool tho is very handy, we don't use the saw all that often, but I've never been able to file a profile bac as good as the wee sharpener if the chain finds one of the many generations of staples and...

Been very lucky, mowed Monday and only got one wee shower over Thursday night and turned out a cracker of a day today to get it gathered up. Not quite the same...
