Kids 12v ride on toys.


I know this is a difficult question due to individuality etc; but which is a better toy? Ie the tractor or gator?
Of course both but I can see the tractor has more options; then that’s also more attachments, but that’s a good thing.
Then the gator is handy as it can transport stuff as it is??
Just interested in how others got on.
My kids have had both and as you say they are both different.

If they are playing together then they like the tractors as they are slightly faster, basically just racing around.

If they are doing their own thing, or helping with jobs, then the gators are far more practical


Bought my lad a John deere gator....he loves it. Fixed a hitch on it and bought a trailer that you pull along on the garden.....changed the handle to a trailer....4 wheels and it tips up too. Biggest let down is the plastic wheels...useless really.... Need to fix some rubber on them


waste of money

best value electric car we bought are the crazy karts - they get hours and hours of use

Do you buy the drift ones? Are they good value seen some for 350. Have 3 lads was going to buy 2 for xmas. Are they a no brainer for 7 to 10 year olds?

I bought a 12V Land Rover Ride-On of Best Choice for my daughter for her birthday and it's been over 1 year, she loves it. We started my daughter driving at low speed until she drove comfortably on her own. Love that it has two seats and seat belts! Super nice quality! My favorite part is that it has the remote - so I can drive it or she can. after a full charge, it can be used from 1 to 2 hours.

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...
