    BKT or Alliance tyres

    Hi, any feed back on either of these tyre brands being better than the other please? Within £20 of each other. 16.9 R34’s on a fairly low use stock tractor - hence the ‘budget’ choice.

    EU vaccine role out.

    I read an article this morning say the ultra efficient EU are having problems making the AstraZeneca vaccine in their factories.

    Donald Trump - views

    I’ll start the ball rolling. For me he’s one of the best presidents ever. He’s run it like a business which is how all countries should be run. Prior to COVID the American economy has been the best it’s been for 40 years. He’s done exactly what he said he was going to do. He’s held the media...

    I had an email today, informing me how many points I need to get in the next 12 months. Considering we’ve been in the pandemic since March, and some of us have also been shielding, with no events, field trials or even close contact with agronomists . Don’t you think they would’ve rolled things...

    Thinking about buying a 20t HGV tipper for farm use only. What are the legalities of doing this? I’m sure I’ve seen somewhere before if you derate them to 25mph you can then run them on red diesel just like a tractor? It would only have to cross a public road from private drive to private drive...

One field in particular has a steep ramp in, which the 155hp on wide tyres only just manages to drag it up. Normally I can manage the trailer...
