    Gator versus quad

    Hi I'm looking at options of getting either a gator (something like the John Deere XUV855D) or quad bike (Honda TRX500) for 70 acres of pasture: feeding animals, fencing, moving stuff, pulling small loads etc. Apart from the obvious: staying drier, having more room onboard to carry stuff), but...

    More money isn't always the answer - so how do you attract staff to work for you

    We all need them, we all want them to work for us. Huge amount of choice for anyone looking for a job with stock or land work. So what works for you - money is not a motivator. Joss Haynes, HAAC, 1980's. Please share your success stories, as majority of us are very poor man managers😉

    Best way of paying for a new Pickup

    Ok, so as of May next year some of our land will be in a Low Emition Zone as well as some of the local towns. The zone will actually start about a mile up the road so this means it will cost me around £9 every time I go that way in my old 2002 Ranger! I don’t really want to part with the old...

    Land-rover discovery td5

    Asking for a uncle, what to replace it with? He dislikes having to put a pickup into 4wd to pull a trailer out the end of the road then try and get out of 4wd again, he likes the fact that the old discovery holds nearly a ton of meal and it's dry and low for throwing it in and pulling it out

    Inspire me

    The time has come for me to look at changing my truck. Currently have a 60plate hilux which does the job but is getting long in the tooth now. The natural choice would be a new hilux but I must say I'm not overly inspired by it. The problem is any other pickup is always going to fall short of...
