Metcalfe openers

  1. These seem to have gone out of fashion a bit as more threads now about Dutch or Bourgault.

    @Clive I know you made your own, what didn't you like about metcalfes?

    anyone else used them? do they ever block with wheat or beans? do Bean tubes ever block?

    PS if anyone has a set for a CO4, Id be interested.

    Haven’t used them for cereals in the autumn. Just the spring. For barley. Found the coulters blocked on moved ground. So best for direct. But prefer the Dutch now.

    @Neddy flanders. The JJM works well and is probably the most cost effective conversion on the market. Plus its British designed and made. What’s not to like in this Brexit era? Works well on wheat and beans.
