    Restoring Rusty Mouldboards.

    Aye-up, I managed to buy back a plough my Dad used to own. It’s a KV LA8NR 3 furrow reversible. It’s only maybe 40 years old but has spent over 20 years sitting outside. You can imagine the state of the mouldboards. Anything I try and buy is too long. The Spaldings chap said he spoke to KV...

    Farmer Focus - Rob Raven
