    Any independent NH /CNH mechanics around South Yorks/ North Notts/ North Derbyshire

    Looking for a recommended New Holland or CNH mechanic in the area. The chap I've been speaking to/ waiting for to fit my tractor in has had me waiting 4 weeks and still not heard anything on sorting it. Several messages and calls he's responded to and it's still in my yard not his workshop. So...

    Game fair has anyone been?

    Has anyone been this year, was it as good as they billed it to be? Reading a few articles and seen a few pictures and videos from yesterday. Looking more like a show that puts the shooting and countryside sports community more under the spotlight for some very positive aspects and some negative.

    McCormick tractors

    Myself and a friend were really impressed with the Mccormick tractors down at Cereals today. Gone are the days of them being a bottom end machine. A proven FPT engine, ZF gearbox and really strong backend. Very well thought out throughout. The cab was much much better than you’d expect and...

    What’s peoples experiences with putting stubble turnings in after ww on timings? Sooner the better or would I have time to lightly work, germinate weeds etc then glyphosate then drill? It’ll be a first this year so keen to try and make a good go of it. Rob

    Law surrounding billing someone for not doing their maintenance.

    As per the title. Has anyone one had such a run in with someone or a local authority over a issue similar. We have a footpath running down the side of two fields. The council own the hedge and woods to the other side. For 25-30 years they have cut the hedge back in the summer and twice cut the...

    Fuel tank / sender issue

    I filled the tractor up today and the dash etc was reading fine. Worked about 40 min or so and it suddenly went like this. See picture. Has anyone with a New Holland has this before? If so what was it? I’m thinking the sender in the tank is jiggered but maybe a wire rubbed through. I’ve no idea...

    Spring cropping, are you starting?

    Has anyone been brave and started drilling or looking at drilling yet? I’ve seen some winter wheat going in still on beet land or failed OSR. I’m tempted myself with weather and conditions being favourable and then it’s pushed through and growing by the time it does turn and we can’t get on the...

    Thermal guns / readers.

    I’ve recently seen videos of people using a pistol looking item to read temperatures from engine bays, fires, corn piles and walls. I’m not after a heat mapping camera thing but I’d be interested in a heat gun that could reasonably accurately tell me the temperature of items or piles of muck...

    South York’s / Derbyshire / Notts

    Last night the 18/12 a field gate was opened and thieves have driven down a field and turned around in the field so must have been a 4x4. They broke into the neighbouring stable yard. Luckily they got into a feed room not the tack room. Stay vigilant these scum are active.

    Viability / profitablibity per acre of rape to other combinables.

    I’ve a customer who went out of growing rape several years ago. He has asked me to look into if the crop is worth growing again in his rotation. His reasons for this are some really good looking crops in the area and some absolutely terrible ones hammered by pigeons and the lack of...

    Christmas begging has started early this year!

    Saturday I recieved a text from a horse lady I have delivered 4 bales to. Asking if she could pay what she’s owes after Christmas. In a nice manner she was told no we need to money in for our bills and wages. This was the first one of this season. Anyway the illness must have spread very quickly...

    Council contacting us re: winter works

    Our local authority has contacted me as to being put on a list of local farmers and contractors around the borough to clear roads grittiers and their snowploughs can’t get around. All seems ok and they are paying £40 an hour. I’ve the equipment to do these jobs anyway so haven’t to invest...

    New Holland Shuttle issue.

    I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue or the same as I and how you resolved it. My shuttle works fine and the tractor moves backwards and forwards never refuses to do so. However you HAVE to press the clutch now when changing direction or it throws a wobbly and sits in neutral...
