    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.

    If I remember correctly u take a piece off the one coming off and refit

    That would make sense, I was thinking that there'd have to be something else connecting on to it to join it together. Thanks for the assistance, I ordered the one in ormands link there now so hopefully have it sometime next week. I use the trailer almost daily so I want to get it sorted and make sure I've the right part before I go ripping it.

    Out of curiosity, if anyone is going to the ploughing and come across the mini zero grazer shown above, I'd appreciate if you could get a ballpark price on it?

    I have a neighbour looking for something like that for a while.

    A lad I know cuts a bit with a drum mower and collects the grass with a loader into a trailer into a few animals.

    Anyone know what you'd be needing for a 16ft tractor drawn livestock trailer? Demountable and/or fixed.

    Thinking of buying a hedge cutter up north.
    Contractor gone too dear and spending a 1k a year on cutting heshe’s is too much. He usually doesn’t come until November and the land is wet .
    Priced one up north and it’s good value but the vat 20% is making it dear.
    Not vat registered. Any way around it

    Can be abit of maintenance to a hedgecutter so make sure you buy a decent one

    I would recommended one with independent hydraulics make sure the pump is tightly fitted to the frame and oil is in good nick. Next make sure all brushing's are tight run your eye on all the frames make sure everything is straight. The head watch the roter is straight and not unbalanced and bearings are tight, the head gets the most of the beating people using it to cut trees. The t fails are best for cutting hedges.
    I have a spearhead that hinges on a frame and it's a pig to put on especially if you're on your own.
    My machine is aged and can't reverse roter which I'd like to be able to do.
    Make sure to keep the fails sharp,need to be checked as the bolts come lose and need to be tightened up.
    Good luck on your quest.

    They aren't that bad. I bought a (very) old McConnell PA24 5/6 years ago up the side of a mountain and it works the finest. I re bushed the rotor a few years back, but that is about the sum total of it. Handy thing to have.

    Good to know

    Couldn't see you putting a hedge cutter on your tractor!!!

    You'd have to buy a tractor/hedgecutter setup but then you'd probably start tipping up "the bad tractor"! :D

    I think I've mentioned this before but what are lad's opinions on double verses tri axle in a 12" foot cattle trailer?. I was pricing trailers today at the ploughing and they (sales reps) all seemed against going for the tri axle despite the fact that some of them manufacturer and sell tri axle 12" trailers. In my mind it would be a steadier trailer but perhaps it's over kill, I've always wanted to buy a 12" Porter trailer but the supposed waiting list is putting me off, I'm not in a huge panic but would prefer to get it bought and be using it at the same time. A 12" Nugent with a tank and chequer plate mudguards caught my eye, the option of finance is another bonus tbh. My current trailer is doing the job the finest atm but I'm leaning towards buying new.

    Have an old Bomford FarmTrim here. Very little goes wrong with it in fairness. Bought for handy money about 20 years ago, and has done all the hedging here since.

    No need for three axle on twelve foot trailer I'd imagine
