Loader brackets/front linkage visibility?

So,

A question for owners/users with front loader and front linkage combination.

I've not used either as a combination, only ever either or.

As I do a lot of front flail work, quite often in small patches and plenty of obstacles and tight access, my main concern is the loader brackets reducing visibility? Obviously the loader will be off when using the front linkage. I can't quite picture it myself and can't really find anything online.

Many thanks!

Don't think you really need to be looking out that much for obstacles when mowing compared to flailing
Mowing fields that aren't yours you do, especially new ones, its surprising how many manholes low water troughs etc you can find lurking in fields that the farmer has forgotten to mention, in the end I always asked and said if I hit something you tell me about that's my fault, if you hsvent told me you have to pay, luckily apart from a couple of stray fence posts left about never hit anything although did have a close shave with a water trough once. Manholes are the worse know a good few who have written of mowers hitting them

Contractor hits object he was not informed of and which was not marked by cone or post= farmer paying. You can't expect a contractor to pay for damage because he didn't spot something. Sucking up stones with chopper the same.

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
