Khun bolt on tines , which impact wrench would be suitable . Wouldn't use it for much else, maybe changing flails also. Would a 1/4 inch be man enough ? which model / brand ?
 
The 1/4" type are generally for screwdriving and light work. 1/2" is a good all rounder for bolts. Then it's a choice between the compact type or the larger one built for wheel studs.
My stuff is all Milwaukee. Others swear by Makita and Dewalt. As the saying goes, you pays your money and you takes your chance. All the big names are probably pretty good now with decent warranties.

Milwaukee M18FHIWF12-502X fuel Gen2 1/2'' impact wrench.
If you go for Milwaukee,this one is the job.
It's well uprated on Nm power compared with the older version that I have. Mine handles Maschio PH nuts no bother even with the 1/2'' to 3/4'' adapter on.It's well man enough for hedgecutter flails too.
1/4'' or 3/8'' drive haven't a hope...

The hardship od bolt on tines. Used to put a set on every summer for 20 years even if there was a bit of wear left because it was a big job. Used a 1ins impact gun which was heavy.
Use the quick fit now. Great job. You wouldnt mind changing them.

Wont even be close with those tools think again.
The Kuhn ph comes with a long handle 24mm spanner when new and adding a bar on the end 'just in case' is the way to go. As @Kildare above they've got to be tight.
Once the nut has been cracked off then a driver may spin it off/on but it needs the extra to tighten and use the right bolts/nuts for the job.

A 3/4 impact Air gun does it fine
No need fo a bar
Bolts sometimes break if non genuine

Currently using a 1/2 inch breaker bar on 24mm socket, not a bad job, but thinking about making it easier and quicker , as I'm getting older, weaker,slower.
Fitting quick fit holders not worth it , cost would be about half what harrow cost s/h.
Impact wrench could be used on other stuff so makes more sense.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

  • 0


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...
