    Looks like there should be a few lions and giraffe going about.

    I did similar with a angle grinder, top blew up and hit me in the chest, made a mess of the clothes, developed a lot of holes at the next wash :rolleyes:

    The scariest one so far was using the angle grinder and set fire to a box of crow bangers, forgot I'd left them beside the bench, the noise and the smoke was biblical, initially thought the oxygen/acetylene bottles had caught, quickest I've ever got out of the workshop :whistle:

    It's homemade. Bought it from the contractor who built it probably 8 or 9 years ago. He was upgrading to a super chaser. 5 grand well spent.. Stack them 7 high it just squeezes and lifts. 2x 6 strings on a layer or 3x 4 strings. It's not keen on hay but brilliant for straw. We have changed the wheels and the axles will need changing soon there's a small bend.

    I cleared about 90 acres of wheat and barley stacks this afternoon mostly close to the barn. Only got out of the tractor to chat to my brother who was stacking in the barn and to take a few photos.

    It's Imber range. The deserted Imber village is just over the left horizon and copehill down Village is off to the right. There were a few tanks instead of lions but I didn't get close enough for a decent photo.

    Will take a couple more photos today. It takes 14 quads although we often just put a single on top as the stack is more stable.

  14. Dodson Contractors around here use similar chasers, all made by them. Very effective and quick. (y)

    Thats what our 'boys land' does to them, can't see any point in changing them yet as they still plough okay, would rather have some heavier land though (y)
