Thinking of buying either a new Malone or Sip 4 rotor tedder. Are they both good tedders or is one better than the other ?

You'll struggle to beat the strength of build in the Malone's headstock IMO, but whether you consider that valuable is up to you.

No neither in stock , the salesman said he could get the Sip in a few days.
About a month till the Malone would be available.

Didn’t really want to comment as it’s close to home for me. The Malone is wider than ours. Not sure if ours was being quoted with hook tines which are available now. Not had any structural issues with them in the 4 years I’ve been connected with SIP and the factory has been making tedders for decades so they know what they are doing. Interesting that the larger Malone is 6 rotor and over 8m working width. We have a new 8 rotor 9.15m hook tine model about to land for demo work ahead of next season. Hook tines for the bigger diameter rotor models - watch this space

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...
