Straw bedder floor chain has decided to jump on the sprockets not the end of the world but why holidays or weekends bedded by hand this morning till I get time to realign
They always do. Had to dig a coupe of tonne of silo out of ours the other weekend as it did the same, our own fault really for not checking the chain. Cut a link out and re tighten and good to go. ordered some u bolts, bones (for the slats), blades (£12 a pair!) are already in and she’s running sweet.

Don‘t know which make you’ve got but watch those u bolts that joins the chain/slats as they give a lot of slack and crack when they wear.

New one: pipe blown on the jcb bendy, the teleram pipe. used a screw in hyd pipe connector and a trailer tipping pipe to make a proper bodge until someone comes back to work to make a new one.

Had ours today. Mother and fathers BMW (potential disaster) looked as though a mouse had chewed through most of the sound proofing on top the engine and one of the fuel return lines between the injectors. Fortunately we have a supply of JD fuel pipe which is the same bore.

Disaster averted. Would never have thought that would happen, car is used most days.

Last night fitted new front bearings to the FRONT axles of the skidsteer

Scraped out 2 sheds this morning... Big Crunch a REAR outside wheel bearing had collapsed and likely took the chain out with it making it 3 wheel drive with a very wobbly wheel :confused::scratchhead::cry::cry::cry:
