    Why I hate electrics

    Not sure if I'm missing something obvious or this is just the black magic that is electric having a laugh at me. Spent yesterday afternoon trying to sort out the 3rd sevice on the old loader tractor, got as far as replacing most of the botched and corroded wiring as far as the 7 pin plug which...

    Straw spreading options for loader tractor

    Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on straw spreaders/choppers when we just have the one loader tractor. The warthog loader mounted spreader looks spot on but they aren’t currently making the round bale model, we’re on all round bales here. I think Malgar used to make them as well but...

    Telehandler vs tractor for daily chores ?

    I have lately been wondering whether feeding up our cows every day with a telehandler is as efficient as it appears?? telehandlers by their very nature are fuel hungry with big engines, torque converters and heavy weights? With diesel going up as it is - I’m going to experiment with running...

    Tyre wear

    I wondered if others with more experience could advise..will wider front tyres will last any longer than my usual 13.6x24 on a loader tractor? Obviously more rubber to wear, but presumably more scrubbing and more ££? 50/50 grassland work and road/yard work Tia

    Feeding out grass silage

    Currently dig out grass silage into a pile with a grab, then use a large Emily bucket to pick it up and feed it along troughs. Simple and little to go wrong. Only needs one tractor. Stupidly thinking out loud now, can I fill a mixer wagon with loader tractor and then hitch loader tractor up to...

    Used CAT telehandler. Yay/nay?

    Looking at buying a used telehandler and I've seen a couple of Cat forklifts at fairly handy money, one TH406c with5500 hours that I really like the look of. Any recommendations? Always thought cat had a fairly good reputation for build quality?

    Backhoe diggers

    It's only a thought at the moment. I see one that was sold that had a jcb q fit carriage. Would be handy for loading bales and muck spreader to keep it busy in the summer then ditching/fence clearing in the winter etc. I don't really want a 360 as I'm keen to use the machine for far greater...

    Clamp v big bale silage cost

    Being lazy here, anyone done the rough cost of each, got the kit to do both, clamp tieing up two good barns that could house young stock or straw, have to find an extra set of hands to run trailers for clamp. Use thick side sheet and double top sheet in clamp, use 6 layers of wrap on the 6...

    rspb hedge campaign

    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/rspb-english-government-england-defra-b968384.html looks like the rspb is going to start campaigning to convert bps cross compliance rules into legislation. so much for opting out of elms and being able to do what you think is best. not a suprise though.

    Handier way to fill top fill tanker.

    For the past couple of years i have been using an old top fill tanker to start spreading slurry in spring, it is 1300gallon with 28.1r26, floats. only reason i dont use it in summer is the pipe from the slurry mixer to the tanker is to hard for one man to put up. Tow farms are away from home...
