    Re: Mcconnel bale packer

    Why are you so set on the balepacker? Would a flat-eight sledge and grab not do your job?

    Even if you do find one, lack of spare parts will be a problem, I'd have thought.

    Wow! It's been quiet here, considering all the goings on. Has Boris prorogued this thread as well? ;)
  3. Re: Ploughed Land, Growing Weeds - Will Power Harrow Eradicate Weeds Before Seeding?

    If the weeds have been growing since early summer, it really needs ploughed again. Repeated power harrowing might break up the weeds enough to make a seedbed, but it's not ideal.

    Re: Massey Ferguson baler in haylage?

    Clearly if the OP is thinking of making any quantity like this, some kind of loader mounted miniature bale squeezer would be essential.

    Re: Metal detecting- Yes or No?

    Welcome to the forum Mickytommo :)

    Firstly, by "cropped fields lying untouched" I suspect you mean stubble or red land (harvested root crops) rather than growing crops?

    These things are rarely cost effective unless you have the labour and equipment to dismantle it yourself. In fact your Uncle should probably be paying you to clear the site.

    Ladybirds in March

    I don't remember ever seeing this before, up here.

    Presumably a product of the mild winter and excessive numbers last summer :undecided:

    Re: Muck spreader chains

    I believe they're case-hardened. We used to get them from Kramp, through the local Agric Engineer.
    Can't remember how much they were, though. We run a Dual Spreader now.

    It could have been manufactured before the war. But I take your point about the profile.

    Is it not likely they're solid tyres. More stable in rough seas and less prone to shrapnel damage :undecided:

    I can't vouch for this as I haven't used anything from this site myself, but this might be of use.

    At least he recognises it is​ important. Which is more than can be said for some of the policy makers in government.

    Re: Can I leave an open ditch in field

    If you want to see how the water flows, I'd get a piece of plywood or something to cover the holes. Much easier than constantly lifting sandstone flags.

    Radio Interference

    Recently fitted some LED worklights to one of the tractors. However the radio interference is terrible when they're switched on.

    Anyone know of a way to cure this?

    I said should be. I meant it like the opening move in a game of poker. It's also the responsibility of the neighbour to keep kids/dogs etc in, if that applies.

    Re: Stock, fencing and neighbours

    If it's a boundary fence, half the cost of replacement should be his.

    I'd go in with this, then offer to cover his share as a gesture of goodwill (don't admit any liability) and see how it goes.
