Thanks. Good news as I am looking for a 12m set and thought cousins only went up to 10m with boards. How many spool valves does it require? The dalbos I tried needed 5.....
Good to see some famers like descent heavy rolls that do some good,compared to the older Vaderstaad rolls that were too light to do much/any good,especially when it came to rolling really stony Cotswold brash.

I got one and grinder with 2 4ah and charger as a starter pack a few years ago happy with them you need the hardened sockets for it
Dad bought a 1000Nm grinder a few weeks back. I said out loud that "who needs a battery grinder that big". The very next day i had to borrow it and put the full 1000Nm "mode" on it to loosen two bolts from my Saab's wheels. The tire shop had installed them wheels well. :rolleyes:

Must have been tight if you needed a grinder to loosen them.

Channeling my inner @Robert K felt I needed a new pressure washer as my old one was 25 years old and pretty much knackered.

Wanted a hot water option and local Karcher dealer had an ex demo machine ready to go.

Just what you need to keep ALL those new toys sparkly clean!
And with the time saved with all these modern efficiencies you'll have time to do so! 👍🤣
 
This story started by looking at an old Parmiter Bobby basic machine and ended up with this. Machine is brilliant though operators need a bit of practice. This is a Protech 220s with hydraulic everything.View attachment 958331
How do they get away with using a rope and no safety guarding whatsoever ever? Given your h&s is as bad or worse than our oh&s ?

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

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...
