1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    IMG_2003.JPG Hi, Have problems with the power steering, it's ok turning wheels left but when you straighten up or turn wheels to the right the steering goes hard, it's like there is a blockage in the hydraulic pipe somewhere, is this a usual problem with these DB's as I heard someone else have the same thing happening but don't know how or if they sorted it, could it be a blocked filter or something, any help would be appreciated.

    The end of the ram looks fairly new. You sure the bottom of the joint isn’t catching on the axle?
    I would be tempted to remove the ram at the axle then check that the ram moves freely on its own, and vice versa the steering. (Jack the front up and it should move by hand with the ram removed). You’ll then know if it’s hydraulics or not

    Thanks I will look into this at the weekend. The photo looks close to the axle but there is a good gap between them.
