    An alternative may be "A chance to see something I don't need!"

    I called in a week or so ago and was speaking to Ed Halse about the books, he went and got one from a year I forget but it had a new threshing machine listed for £790, and a field Marshall tractor for about £1200. Would be great to have some of the pages posted to a thread here.

    But, you'll have to start spending it H, you can't go on, stockpiling.
    The mattress must be solid, or have you more than one?

    I think I have some 70's ones somewhere but I would think someone on here could go back from there

  9. Somewhat off topic @Henarar, but thinking about you and dealers...
    Was there a fire at quantock?
     
  10. Tell you what I want, is a bucket with a grab on it. Are they any good? Can you get into the walls and corners of sheds when dunging them out with them??
     

  11. I can’t think of a farmer here without one so that’s a fair recommendation. We have a couple yes they help a lot.
    I thought you were studying now?
     
  12. I am studying, I have some 'cow therapy' in my spare time but it isn't much. Pocket money really. Enough to buy a pint at the pub.

    They are a great job, I have one from Stronga that I bought about 11 years ago, use it for handling silage squares and picking up 500kg bales on edge to chuck in straw chopper, muck out all my sheds at home with it, would never be without one now, cannot recommend enough.
     
  14. They are called “crocodile” here

    Grabs are great .I used a Cat 428 to grab a old mattress and use it to clean the gutters on the compost site .Saved hours and no damage :)

    Mine also arrived, I have a full set back to 1981. But would love to see some of the older ones. When you enter the offices Philip has a wall “papered” in old editions.
    It’s great to have so many machines with an idea to price and the level of discount you can expect. Top marks to a top firm(y)

    its more than most will do to put a price on everything
    when a farm up the road sold up the farmer told me afterwards that they chucked out a complete set going back years maybe back to the 60's IIRC

    Is Phillips son still doing the rounds of all farmers it is sent out too? He popped in here last year I think and said it would take him over 3 years to complete but his Dad said it was important he got out and met us all face to face.
