Don't mind a bit of work to get it right but a machine that's reliable and simple would be good. Bear in mind that although I have...

    Best undersowing method

    Would like to have a go at undersowing spring barley with grass next year, heavyish clay will be topdowned in autumn and barley drilled as soon as conditions allow following spring, when/how would you sow grass?

    Round baler belts slipping

    I recently bought a jd 467ss baler and have been baling damp corn fodder with. When I get a bale bigger than 4 ft I really have to slow down or the belts sometimes slip on the drive rolls and the bale stops turning, what would cause this?

    Bombproof round baler

    Hey I'm potentially looking at getting a used round baler, i want something cheap, simple and easy to fix that makes 4ft bales of everything from silage to straw. Can anybody recomend anything that they've had good experiences with. Or not so I know what to stay clear of. Cheers
