Picked up a apple harvester today and link arm staberliser was too short to stop the machine rubbing the tyre so some farmers friend and a spanner came to the rescue! Drove about 20mile like this.

Pinched the idea from somewhere : After looking out for a mini scraper tractor for a while, the money being asked for was rich for what was on offer, managed to pick this up off an online disposal auction and used the rubber from our snow plough that we replaced a few years ago (I knew I'd kept it for a reason!) Picking the machine up from its previous loving home and seeing the look on the guys face when I explained what we were going to use it for !. First day in the shed with it today, might need to put a bit of weight behind the scraper for a bit more downforce but otherwise very happy with it.

so you didn't fancy changing the blades on the deck for paddles, for more of a sweeping action. Pictures if you do, or better a video

Come home from the hospital in the afternoon from our new baby being born 2am, to feed up quickly before heading back. Straight away hydraulic hose blows on the teleyhandler leaving her stranded in the barn blocking our loader tractor. Thankfully spare bale spike shoved through the digger knuckle on the bucket works brilliantly! :) I might actually have to make up a proper attachmen, makes loading a breeze.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
