Quick question for you! Do you use a disc or tine cultivator and why do you prefer one over the other? Thanks!

I preferer tines as they don't have any bearings. pig tail, carrier , drill has been the routine for a few years but bought a topdown last backend and I have to say its a fantastic bit of kit but can't help thinking the discs and tines should be the other way around.

Maybe some ofbthe machinery firms ,should talk to the potential customers who come on stands at shows ,and their agents should engage with them and ask questions ,instead of sat in their trailers or huddled round together discussing football or how how many pints they had in the hotel night before , and get your dealers out on farm or the company reps too ,
we will if change drills be a lemken or sulky ,as both co,s involved have done a very good job ,getting andemo machine and their reps been very helpfull
this is not a poke at opico
just afew thoughts from what a lot will thinkmwhen you walk on a stand , be it a old boy asking questions , because one day you may be selling tomhim in the future ,

If you could bring in well built reasonably priced, there would be a good demand on the smaller family farms like my own.
