I put a box of milking gloves in tractor and loadall, another box in workshop next to grease guns and oils. Getting people to wear them
I don’t like getting my hands dirty full stop! The old man real p!$$es me off though, his tractor wold look like stigg of the dump lived in it if I didn’t keep bollocking him! The number of times I’ve found the grease gun in the cabIts strange though
Most farmers would think nothing of getting into a £50k tractor with mucky hands, yet would not get into a £5k car the same
Here’s what’s been happening this week -
Got caught up with the muck spreading for a bit.

Finally got a spare hour to sort some of my own jobs out, so treated the 6520 to a new bonnet louvre, mirror glass and a tail light cover (hedge cutting damage!!!!)

And the new batwing landed thanks to @ED.D , however the lads decided they couldn’t be bothered to drop a machine off one of the tractors to move it do you think it’s over loaded?

And finally got a call, “have you got time to do some firt spreading?” Sure why not got a bit of spare time, there and asked “how much is there?” Reply “erm about 600ac” doh
It’s not a bad when it’s a mile from one end to the other, I have ordered a hopper extension though
