    Rural Crime, Bodycams, And What You Can / Should Actually Do When Faced With A Criminal.

    Just after a little advice really. And not "give em half an hour with me in that soundproofed shipping container" advice. Recently it seems that, despite the best intentions of the bobbies on the beat, that we can catch criminals better than they can. I was chasing a criminal who was...

    Merlo 32.6 ram seals.

    The main lift ram on our Merlo 32.6 is weeping quite a bit of oil and will need the seals changing before harvest. How hard a job would it be for a moderately competent with a set of spanners, but untrained farmer? Or would it be worth getting someone in to do it? Many thanks, B'o'B

    Black grass 2021

    Up until now we have not had a problem with black grass. But one field seems to have got away on us. It’s first wheat after osr and would expect it yield about 10t/ha. There is not enough grass to effect the yield but too much to pull by hand. The area is about 12ac which would be about 4% of...
