    I think you can apply for derogations, and roadside ones can be done at any time if it's related to keeping the highway clear and safer.

    Re: Hedgecutting

    A couple of horsey types have asked me to come and tidy their paddocks up with the trimmer, bloke who owns the trimmer has told me no go ,,,, the man will be issuing fines for breaking the deadline rules,,,

    weird though as I could go down with my chain saw and set about the job,,,

    EDIT,, after having a look at one of the jobs it needs most of it sorting with a saw before the "hedge" can be trimmed any way,, I did say to the couple involved it would be 27.50 hr for hedge trimming,, they thought that was very expensive,, tried to explain if they did once a year it would take 3-4 hours I stead of about 3-4 days and involve a fire the size of their big field,,, but hey,,

    does the driver not risk getting done with destroying nesting birds regardless who told him to do it ?

    Re: Hedgecutting

    ive had one on for a year . find it handy instead of having a hydraulic roller for doing odd bits athough if im cutting a lot of grass i your still better of shifting it . its handy for doing the end of a hedge/gatway sit still and lift the boom up , doesnt matter how wide it is ,cos your not moving you dont get any steps in it . you do need to be carfull though , when you angle the head it throws all the thorns directly at the cab . ive not found any real benefit cutting heavy stuff , you lift the front up but it just means the roller is pushing the branches back away from the flail . the main reason for me having it is because of cabs on the new claas is further forward so we had to put an extention on the head to bring it forward so we need the orbiter unit to fold the head out the way when its in transport

    What sort of money does it cost? Is there a transport pin or similar to lock them out?

    Re: Hedgecutting

    There's no way of locking it out not on mine anyway . thats not a problem although you definitely dont want to put the spool into float . did it once not a good move. mine is straight into the back of the tractor .couldnt give you an exact price but i think it was round about 1000 although a telescopic you'll need longer pipes.




    btw thought you couldnt see by a spearhead??

    Just fancied a McConnel, everyone has been raving about them for all these years....

    The Spearhead rep I dealt with left the company, whereas the McConnel rep lives just about 6 miles from here so I can always dump it in his driveway if its a pile of pants
