    Attaching trailer air brakes

    As above, is there a knack to attaching trailer air brakes? Having bought a trailer with air brakes I tried quite hard to attach them to the tractor and failed, it felt like trying to attach a hydraulic coupling under pressure.

    I know disc mowers are more popular than drum mowers but I really dislike my Krone disc mower.
