    Re: barn dismantling

    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.

    Re: Allman crop sprayer 30ft boom (older model)

    It will tell you on the spec sheet of the glyphosate drum, but I'd say not less than 200.

    You probably want to add in a wetter, as well. Especially if you're trying to kill rushes.

    Not familiar with Jones but is there not a ram stop to prevent the ram hitting the needles?
