Howard rotovator input shaft

Evening all,
Got a HR 40 rotovator with a sheared input shaft. I can get a new one from new Holland but it's strong money to say the least and kramp have a long lead time. Does anyone know of a breaker of such machines or anyone carrying new old stock from when either Howard or dowdeswell disbanded? It's a 3.05 m machine with a 200 hour selectatilth gearbox.
Many thanks in advance
Tom
 
Tried standen engineering and drew a blank as they never did the HR40 machines. Its a selectatilth gearbox which was very common, anyone any ideas who else might hold a stock of parts?

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
