1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    I bought one of these It's very powerful with four torque settings and far cheaper than anything like it here in UK.

    I ended up buying the DeWalt Brushless 1/2 and so far it does everything I have asked of it.
    One of the deciding factors for me was I already have DeWalt batteries

    This looks like the official Millwaukee site, although I may be wrong.

    yes, your right, i wasnt looking too hard tbh, just what i found quick.
    it dose look the part tho dosent it.

    altho id assume there is as many on the oem site if william is doing it right.
    quite possibly different packages of the same tool but even so, there is a lot.
    its nearly as bad as metabo is for their grinders.

    I’ve just had one delivered by Moore’s after being ordered on miwaukeeonline website. Service was great,arrived next day.
    Some tool, we went for the highest torque 1/2” drive. Changing metal on Vaderstad rapid, it didn’t miss a beat, did every bolt without trying.
    Only two problems, it’s pretty heavy and would shear new bolts clean off if used on any higher setting than 2 of 4.
    Also bought a 1/2 to 3/4 adapter for bigger impact sockets and fetched tractor tyres off without any effort after being done up with big bar.
    Ours was £350 plus VAT with 2 5A batteries. They also do 12A batteries but £200 ea.

    the spare batteries are 3 times the price they need to be, also think what the use it will be put to, if using allday everyday maybe a 4 amp is usefull, otherwise why carry round all that expensive dead weight you probly naver take advantage of

    same with electric cars, all the marketing is towards that magic 300 mile range on a charge, yet for 80%of drivers a 30 mile round trip is an adventure to be planned
