    Drill filling ideas.

    Is there a small lift able hopper for avadex or similar?? I have avadex applicator high up on the drill and it’s a bit of a balancing act while hand balling 25 bags. I was thinking of filling a container in the store and then dropping in the drill with the loader. I hate seed corn in bags also...

    B & B pay rates

    I’d be surprised if they only keep them to 30kg. More like 40. That lowers the weekly rate. Maybe 9week turnaround instead of 7
