Hi
I'm after some ideas for storage when space is limited please
I'm not a real farmer but have a 10 acre small holding
I have 2 large sheds but one is full of stables for the wifes horses:banghead:
the other is for my tractors,digger,dumper,telehandler etc and my workshop
I try and keep everything under cover to make it last longer but seem to always end up with attachments/buckets etc all over the yard
I know some of you have massive sheds etc to put stuff in but for the ones that havn't have any of you any ideas/pics of how you store yours?
I'd love another shed but nowhere to put one that wouldn't require driving through to get to others so no point.
None of my kit is new and want it to last as long as possible.
thanks in advance
scott
 
Keep the telehandler at the front as I would say that will be used most
If you keep horses there is good chance you are keeping rats
Is the horse shed near house ?

to be honest the skid steer is used the most but I know where your coming from, yes too near for my liking but got rats under control eventually (y)

Mezzanine floor can be built for not a lot of money , few girders and a floor can double your storage , especially with. Handler with a bit of reach.
Smaller implements can be stored up on it .
Or heavy duty racking around the walls an option too for smaller equipment.

If you could site an old curtain side trailer - could you not build a 3 or 4 bay single sloped roof shed. Open at the front, reverse in drive out, or store kit etc

Farm subsidies and helping the environment | Letters

Written by

Ian Stewart insists farmers do not get payments just for owning land, Bob Roberts points out the importance of incentives and public access, while Iain Climie is concerned about food security

The farming subsidy system needs to be totally redesigned and, yes, there are hideous anomalies (Environment to benefit from ‘biggest farming shake-up in 50 years’, 30 November). Racehorses and golf courses are not my idea of farming. But please stop stating that farmers get...
