    Why did you choose them over the other makers?

    Shes mounted underneath which leaves the weight more forward than all at the back. Probably get the computer on it aswell and also hes covering the macerator for 2 years

    What's the computer for?

    Is the macerator reversible?

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    Never thought to ask but I'm sure if you just pull the lever the other way itll reverse

    It's like a seeder control box. You tell it what rate ya want the slurry out at and it tells ya what speed to do. Tells ya how much total slurry is applied to each field. Controls the macerator and arms on it too

    Its like a flow rate meter then?
    Would it be sensitive enough to pick up on watery washings vs thicker cattle higher Dm type slurry as would flow differently?

    Would that go onto any tank Reggie or you have to have the manufacturer made brackets on it from the start?

    Have a 2010 HiSpec here and don't know what to do going forward

    Fair play. You’re always planning ahead. How did she work out for the season?

    Well I'm sure watery slurry would move faster than thick slurry. I've to call up to see her getting done and look at the computer. I'll find out all then

    That can be retro fitted to any tank. Richard puts the brackets on up the north

    What are lads opinions on this? Looks a good job i think.

    Innovative. But a lot of moving parts and in that guise it sounds hard on itself. He’d want to soften some of those movements or I’d think there could be a welder needed after a couple of seasons.

    16 Bales could be 12 tonnes alone. Add to that all that metal. I'd hate to be working it in a wet year.

    Might be a grand job on the plains of royal Meath but it would be on its side in a ditch up here when the third bales goes in.

    16 bales is big load too. Dread to think what the fields would be like in a wettish year.

    Another downside for some might be that you can only go two high without double handling. If you're in a big enough way to have that machine you'll be wanting to go higher.

    An option might be to go for 12 bales and stack 3 high.

    Yeah that is true , but surely a bale trailer full of bales is a fair weight too.

    Fook the super singles into the hedge and look into a forced steer system that lets a trailed implement run in crab steer.

    Fair play to him. It's a great idea. Maybe if there was an 8 bale version for soft ground it might help...

    Great job, we've one that's over a tonne and need every bit of it because we have a very hilly yard here.

    It's not a flow meter really. Was talking to Richard today and you can recalibrate the tanker for each tank ya pull out of if there was a major difference in the slurry.
