    Spreader hood or tedding out?

    Does using a spreader hood on a mower conditioner eliminate the need for tedding out, or would you still do it?

    To blast or not to blast....

    That is the question. I thought I'd post this in machinery forum rather than workshop. What are the forum members thoughts on machinery that has been shot blasted and repainted/overhauled about resale/value? Is it worth the time involved or does it put potential buyers off by covering up...

    Direct Drilling Vs Alternatives

    We currently plough in the stubble, and then drill with a sulky master 3 with suffolk coulters on the back of a 3M kuhn powerharrow. Works well so long as there isn't any rubbish on the surface to clog in the harrows at the back or between the coulters. We are considering direct drilling or...

    Straw for muck - allocation of costs within a business

    Sorry if this has been done before. How do people allocate costs to enterprise, i.e. baling, carting of straw to livestock, carting muck, spreading to arable? What about mucking out? Is value considered cost neutral? Didn't know if this should be posted in Cropping or Livestock as I'm sure it's...
