    Do you find it hard to get under pallets. Like hard to see?

    It can be alright but view is limited by the front of the tractor so you have do a bit of messing around once you get the forks at the right distance. I moved two pallets today with it and it was OK to use.

    I think once you can set the back on the ground and the front an inch or so off the ground and level it out once you get in under the front, you'll be OK, if I'm explaining properly?

    Oh I know. My loader not have self levelling and I find it fairly tricky. If moving fert on toes I get someone to watch.

    It'd be difficult without self leveling, loader is on a zetor here and bonnet is vey high but I can set it level and on the ground I can see the last 3ins of the toes.
    as I'm tall, the seat is high too so that's a help

    Is this okay? I can't see anything amiss here. Spoke with him too - cant see what would be amiss.

    It's fairly expensive for a second hand transport box, a new one is €375.

    I thought so too. But I was asked to check if the guy was legit and can't see any reason as to why not.

    Or a lovely big alsatian that will tear the arse of someone who comes into the yard at night!

    Is this happening from within your own yard?

    Not sure
    Checked a few cameras in the village where she was parked up but nothing so happened somewhere last night. Either in my own yard or in front of BILs house


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,896 ✭✭✭funkey_monkey


    Seems more likely that it was some kid messing in the village then, rather than someone going over to your land to steal a key for the linkage.
    More effort to do that than to wrap some rod wire or bend a 6" nail.
    Still there are some mistake folk about.

    That kid might be closer than you think.......I wonder is there any children in the BILs house

    Reggie will have to start using padlocks as pins!

    Usual thing is weld in a bolt as stops link balls going walkies also

    I'm considering using bolts on everything now instead of pins. Cant figure where they went missing but both were gone. One from either side


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,761 ✭✭✭Odelay


    Use the nylock nuts with them.

    If both were gone, surely it wasn't too far from home? Or do your stabilizers hold it in place?

    Buy a few sets of eyes and bolts good option alright but if its someone messing they'll find something else to mess with

    You'll be like the lorry drivers now, you'll walk round your vehicle before you drive off

    I’d say he does that, but it’s impossible to check every bit after every stop. Too many adjustable bits on farm machinery compared to a truck, but still worth a walk around.

    Am I the only one that sometimes still forgets a loader self-levelling and automatically start to tilt it as if to manually level as it's going up or down and then have to correct it!

    I have a bit of an unwritten rule with regards machinery on tractors.
    If i get a tractor to drive that someone else has put on the machine. Check everything is right. Pins clips hoses light cables pto shafts connected right.
    The same goes when i put a machine on the tractor. Get the driver to check everything is ok.

    My cattle trailer has starting chucking when the brakes are applied so I'm assuming the damper (I think that's the term) in the hitch has failed. Is it possible to replace this part easily? It's a Bradley HU 12 hitch on a Graham Edwards trailer if that's any help. Thanks

    Thank you, what does the threaded end connect to? I'm assuming the end with the eye goes in first and is secured by a bolt at the back of the hitch.
