    Which Milwaukee tool?

    Right a bit of a weird one for a project. Which Milwaukee drill is the lightest, least torquiest there is? Also, is there a 'straight drill'. As in all in line like the M18 die grinder? Both must have variable speed trigger.

    Lights on the road

    Got sent these by a non farming friend the other day asking why farmers did this. Rear lights so bright they dazzle cars behind them, but a big bucket on the front so no one can see the front lights. Obviously the driver has cab work lights on so oncoming drivers can be see him, but has...

    Machinery Stands

    Bit of a strange one this, so here goes! I'm making an implement that is towed by the three point linkage. Basically a small headstock with Scharmuller ball on it, then the implement attaches to this. Think Sumo trailed Trio, etc. A pet hate of mine is kit that leaves the headstocks free to...

    Which cattle crush?

    We have an old Bateman crush, (20yrs?) which is OK at what we want it for, but getting tired. We’re all Lim X cows and followers through to fat. Main jobs are PDing, jabs, tags, drenching, sucklingetc and of course TB (4yrs). The winches are an essential for us for foot trimming / problems...

    Forklift mounted roller mill

    Maybe a daft question but does anyone make a tele handler mounted roller mill. Not looking to make flour, just break grains up to make them digestible.

    Trimble GFX / NH XCN help please

    I have an XCN with external camera and coverage switch. It doesn’t work properly. Im fairly sure it’s because this option is set to the middle one. If I select the top option, as soon as I exit it goes back to the middle one. Any ideas?

    MF Cab Suspension

    We’ve got an elderly MF8480 with airbag cab suspension. The air systems packed up and I’ve been told you can replace the standard MF dampers with a Fendt one that has the springs in as well, to save all the air rubbish. Does anyone know what parts I need?

    Grease Gun Ends

    Can anyone recommend somewhere to buy decent grease gun ends? The Bazzoni ones that come on the speedy grease guns are very good, but have started to leak. Ordered some replacements but they sent me those G connectors, they last a week and don’t fit on half the nipples. Just want some really...

    Leatherman Service

    Had a Leatherman Skeletool for 8? years now, the belt clip broke, the blade was getting blunt and I'd lost the screwdriver bits. Contacted Leatherman, they said it was covered under their warranty. Sent it last Thursday, and a brand new one has just arrived the post. So thought they deserve a...

    Chemical delivery drivers

    What are the rules on where chemical deliver drivers can leave chemicals? We have an electric gate, normally they pull up, buzz the intercom and get let in. The company has the access code to a drop off box. Last delivery, they were let through the gate, but left the delivery next to the box...

    Double yellows on farm drive?

    Our farm drive frontage is quite wide, but the council road is quite narrow. From one direction in a HGV you need the full width of the drive to swing into the yard. Problem is, people (visitors, reps, Dad) like to park just where the unit needs to go when turning in. Has anyone any experience...

    Recommend me a pump

    I need a 230v unit to pump rainwater out of a collecting tank into a beet cleaner. It will need to pump up 2m and along 6m. Ideally I want an in line pump rather than submersible, 75+lpm, as high a pressure as possible. Pump will run 1-2 mins at a time, controlled by a manual switch. Any...

    Muck trailer body

    We have 2 muck trailers, built by Gull for Bartlett carrots in about 1995. They have done a lot of miles at Bartletts, and moved an awful lot of cow muck for us. The chassis are in really good nick, and very high spec, but the skips are rotten. I am wondering about making new skips for them, but...
