    Is it working well? What are you drilling? So many questions! Looked tidy enough.

    You will need plenty of hot water for all the pipes we used a old kettle and just dipped pipes in for 15 sec
    and a cordless drill with a 7mm bit for all the jublee clips
    Did you get a double harrow bar as well

    no I had changed the batter boards for harrows last year so I hope these will do?

    Yes the pipes are a bit of a b#####d as we replaced some last year.

    We have both on at moment
    for the pipes we were useing a heat gun till it broke but we found it would warm the pipe in one place rather than right around so we got a old kettle boiled it up and put pipes straight in it worked a treat

    forgot to ask, what did you do with the existing pipes. did you cut them down or just leave them a bit long?.

    I find it quite amusing that the 'wet kit' looks to have gained a lot of popularity quickly because it allows the drill to run in less than ideal circumstances. I actually think its over come the failings of the first 3 incarnations of the drill with regards to seed/soil contact/coverage on heavy soils. It could be one of those things that just stays on the drills from now onwards because as well as making the drill better in heavy soil it also gets rid of the landing strips between rows on the wider row spacings allowing pidgeons to land and because its moving more soil it probably will mean slugs are less of a problem as well.

    I agree with what you are saying. But that just shows how versatile the machine is. Like I have Said before it really is like a big mechano set. You can adapt it for a lot of conditions.

    Any pic's showing established crop after 'wet kit' used, I assume there will be 2 rows either side of front tine rather than a solid band.
