I built a shelf racking to stack loader attachments. Saving a lot of space.

sorry, not skilled enough to put photos on. I just made a big bookshelf out of 3x4 timber frame bolted to shed steelwork on 3 levels so everything is stacked in a small space and always in the dry, with the heaviest on the ground. and lightest ( pallet tines ) at the top. made it 16 yrs ago.

Something I could never get my head round was why some people buy expensive kit and throw it behind a hedge.:scratchhead: I don't have a lot of new stuff, but I try and look after what I have. Under a roof is the best place to store it, unless your making so much money that it doesn't matter.
I know of one or two good combines just parked up and left in the field behind the farm yard, and left like that till needed the next year. Money must grow on trees.

I always assumed those folk with pictures of tractors being cleaned, carpet in the cab, etc, were a pee take, now you are telling me folk store attachments inside?! Incredible.
I was always told by my father never leave any machine outside ever !. And he never did. And I never do either, everything is parked inside every night. The only time they are outside is when they are used. Vehicles included as well.

There is never enough space for that here. As soon as a new shed is built, animals go in. But definitely the best policy if you have the space.

Both big tractors, baler, grain trailer, combi drill, fert spinner never spend a night outside. Everything else 2 older tractors, plough, cultivators, bale trailer has to stand outside unfortunately. The sprayer is out over summer months in over winter. One day I will have a purpose built machinery shed....One day

Written by John Swire

Ktwo are a leading British manufacturer of farming machinery and they have now secured a 5-year export partnership to continue to serve their growing audience across North America.

Ktwo saw an opportunity in the North American market for strong high-quality agriculture trailers after being approached by several companies across the US and Canada in early 2020. They needed a manufacturer with the capacity and experience to fulfil their need for strong, large silage trailers to hold volumes up to 75m3.
