    Vicon RF125

    Are the Vicon RF 125 balers any good or is the RF 2235 a better baler?

    McHale or Kuhn Fixed or Variable?

    Which baler to replace a variable chamber Krone? McHale roller makes best shaped bales of grass, Kuhn belt best for swallowing dry stuff (and presumably straw), but bales of second cut sag before wrapping (or I didn't set the density correct on the demo). What are the McHale V6 like for making...

    Disc vs Drum Mowers ???

    Our Kverneland ( Taarup) drum mower is showing signs of its age. It has been a good bit of kit, but general signs of metal fatigue in the frame and lots of welding are taking their toll. We are thinking of replacing it but what with? We have always had drum type mowers and are wondering about...

    How to prevent hay barn fire?

    Left to his own devices contractor has baled 60 round bales a day earlier than I would have liked. How long would they need to be left in the field to eliminate spontaneous combustion risk or how much a risk will there be if they are stacked 2 or 3 high under cover?

    Vicon mower blade torque

    Hi All with Vicon mowers, the handbook torque given for the blade nuts/bolts is 120Nm, which seems excessive for the size of the bolt. Any views on this? I have to admit that I once lost a blade, having just guessed the tightness without using a torque wrench, but I have difficulty in getting...

    Silage

    Why do we chop it ? Why can’t I just load trailers with handler run down row push up a heap load trailer tip in pit repeat ? Why bother with the expensive bit ?

    When is the time to confront the elephant in the room ?

    Our action to negate or slow global warming is clearly not going fast enough. I don't point the finger at the UK exclusively, we are far from the worst offenders, however in general, are we doing enough ? Looking at Agriculture alone, currently social media is full of pictures of tractors...

    I remember when.............

    All this canter about electronics, powershift transmissions, computer control etc just makes me smile when I cast my mind back to 1966 when a new Nuffield 10/60 arrived to boost a fleet of 460's. My Gosh - 10 gears instead of 5 just with another lever! Whatever will they think of next?

    Disc mowers?

    So having run into trouble in very heavy grass crops today with the old drum mower, I'm starting to think about a new disc mower.(now remember the THINK bit) . What have others bought and what sort of money is involved? needs to be 8 ft. cut and could do without a conditioner.

    Bale weight and pros of chopping?

    Have the option of a contractor with a McHale Fusion to do some haylage for sheep. How heavy are fusion bales roughly? And what are the advantages of have the grass chopped? Wastage, quality??

    Liquid fert bowser

    Is there any reason we couldn’t secure multiple IBC’s to our bale trailer, plumb together and use these as a bowser? Or any other alternative suitably safe options. Travelling about 4-5 miles
