As said usually those concentric bearings are relatively easy to change as they're not right a tight fit on the shaft like some other bearings.
Two grub screws and knock the shite out of the collar with a taper punch and it'll come loose the plenty of p!ss in the shaft, perhaps a rub over with emery cloth and hay presto bobs your uncle it'll come off.
Dutch auction on the repair robbie ,think we both should go do it ,and get strawbs in a bikini , would pay for that 😘

In the words of Harold steptoe "you dirty ole man" anyway by the time you've struggled to get that bearing off you'll be too knackered to chase any fine young fillies around the yard!!!
[email protected] 1594 you'll have to step aside and let a pro have a crack at it.....the chasing around the yard not the bearing, your welcome to that!!!!!

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
