Back on for a bit more last week.
Must say, I’m impressed with this drill.

Has anyone tried either of these two legs/tubes from APM? I like the hard facing on the side of one, and the bolt-on side wall on the other. For me, these are appealing due to the wear level I get in my stone. I haven’t used either of them, and am just considering it.

Just wondering if anyone is running them?

Is there anything that’s wrong with the older type sabre tine drill like on Weaving’s reconditioned one on their website. Is the frame as strong as the new ones? 3 rows of tines doesn’t bother me as we bale everything and we have a gd if trash is an issue but the GDs weak point is it won’t get beans deep enough and the coulters block on beans

Nothing wrong with them from my experience, have drilled everything successfully with my 2017 6m Sabre Tine including beans last year.
Frame seems very strong and the plastic tank makes it nice and light. 3 rows of tines is the main difference from what I can see but trash flow hasn't been a problem for me.
As it happens, it is for sale due to a grant-induced change...

Did you put beans into stubble with it? We’ve ended up buying a refurbed one from weaving.

Do you really need beans in deep?

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
