Hi,advice needed please
giving the skid steer bucket brush a birthday and need a bolt on cutting edge and brushes that are 7" internal diameter
Tried agri link and they only do 5" brushes and weld on cutting edges.
Before I turn to google and get ripped off I wanted to ask you for your advice please?
Thanks in advance

I can't remember what size ours was now but I don't think it was a common one. Local spaldings rep did a good price.

Don't forget spacers.

thanks
do you need to replace all the spacers aswell?
depends what state they are in really! If the zinc coating is shot and theyhave gone soft then, yes I would. Try having a poke with a screwdriver. I got away with replacing maybe 7 or 8 on a 7'6" brush but I have a feeling I should have done most of not all. They also tend to crush a little as you tighten up the brushes and the old ones might give up a little too easy....... I ended up using an old brush or two as extra spacers...... come to think of it, perhaps that's the trick and you don't need spacers at all...... hmmm.

The 31 March deadline for responses to RABI’s Big Farming Survey is fast approaching and everyone linked to farming across England and Wales is being encouraged to take part.

“The support that we’ve received since the launch of The Big Farming Survey in January has been incredible. We’d like to thank everyone who has already completed the questionnaire or promoted the research project more widely,” says RABI’s Chief Executive, Alicia Chivers.

“However, the more comprehensive the data collected, the better the reflection on the daily realities of people from all sectors of agriculture and across all regions,” she adds. “We therefore want to hear from farmers, farm workers, contractors, spouses, adult-aged children and...
