New toy day


Livestock Farmer
Another piece added to my umbilical kit jigsaw.

This turned up in the dark last night. I wonder if it'll fit in that shed......View attachment 1035262

I bought it sight unseen, it's tidier than I thought it would be and also appears to be holding all its bodily fluids which is a bonus. Surprise surprise, the aircon doesn't work. Now to see if I can find a FL/PTO & loader for it at a reasonable price.
Give Alistair Horrocks at Power Farming Wholesale in Morrinsville a shout.. PFW acquired a lot of Sigma loaders for Same's when Dan Cosgrove lost the franchise.. might be something left... alternatively. they might have a Trima to sit. Alternatively give Giltrap Agrizone a shout.. they are the Sigma importers.....Ag Attachments in Hamilton should be able to help you with FL and PTO

New to us toy... small dairy farmer from rural Ireland so can't compete with most stuff on here but I'm happy with it.

Sunstrip and roof lights will be in the bin as soon as we get time.
Why? Surely making alot of work all holes in roof to fill and try to seal. Not something I'd be putting on a tractor but if I bought one that had them on not sure they'd bother me enough to take them off
