Silage clamp mats

We use old conveyer belts out of a local stone quarry on one clamp. They are very efficient and massively unpleasant to handle.

Had silage mats the ones with holes in they were to larg to handle on your own so cut them in half great instead of tyres keep a few now when croping still come in handy for all sorts . This autumn baught bulk fert used when sheeting it up . They are years old a few cracks in them but still nothing to bother about
I’ve got stacks of old conveyor belts which were in the cubicles. Very effective as a clamp cover and agree very hard to handle. Anyone wanting some, they’re available for a small fee.
I like the fact that the mats have holes in them, which make them easy to handle and a bit lighter too
