    Lads do it on lorries all the time even without a loader, I was in the west of Ireland last weeek and saw a couple of bodies up on ''stilts'' The guy in france seemed to like making things, his low loader was capable of carrying three tractors

    Yeah but the lorries are rigid.

    Reggie, Are you referring to the A&W trailer in particular here, or to other makes.

    What I liked about the A&W trailer, from reading the article was :
    "According to A&W Engineering, the unit can be attached and removed with “ease”. When not in use, the livestock body sits on special legs. To mount the unit, the low-loader can simply be reversed in underneath – and then secured using the twist locks.

    To remove the unit, the legs must first be re-attached. The bed of the trailer can then drop – to create 150mm of clearance (enabling the trailer to be driven away)".

    I just think in theory it works but trying to get the twist locks lined up might be a challenge. Uneven ground and that. You could do it first time or be at it an hour

    As far as I'm aware theres no guides for them as they come down

    What difference in a rigid lorry
    I doubt that there's a loader used here, if you dropped the hitch on an ordinary trailer the back would rise enough to put in the stilts, this one is probably on air anyway and you'd do what you'd like with it.

    For what length?

    According to their Facebook page 24ft, 28ft & 32ft. With 30ft made to order.

    Jesus, there is some amount of pure rubbish written in the comments on these Facebook sites.

    There's a lad over in England that l follow on YouTube that has that trailer setup. He calls it a cattle float. Up on jacks or stilts as u say and just reverse in and drop it down. "Olly's Farm"

    That Irish lad in France made his first one of those about 25 ago for the back of a flat bed rigid he had at the time. Used to put up sheds and could use lorry for that and to haul cattle.

    The slurrykat bale trailer with hydraulic sides is 20k + vat

    Does hydraulic sides mean the nordic style rails that lift up and down avoiding strapping down or platforms that fold out for leveling spud boxes:confused:

    Dunno about the trailer, I'd say it's a bolox to get lined up to put Back on.

    I didn't mind watching that fella either until he came out with the gym gear on and I just thought gob****e!

    Ha! I'll tell em I've been saving my communion money for this. :D

    They were bought at a clearance sale of a deceased gentleman farmer in his ninties who had the tidiest farm in the country.
    The total of the two lots, a 94 reg tractor
    6100hrs and an 08 heavy duty Kuhn mower with not much work done came to with commission and vat on commission €14,500.
    The tractor seems perfect to me.
    It was a rob as far as I'm concerned.

    Ah I don't think so.. Maybe but I'd say it might be a bit too much.
    I might find out next week. By right she'd want to be reshod on wider rims and new tyres. It'll do all my lighter jobs.

    Any idea what the small unpainted tipper trailer made? I was wanting to buy it for drawing dung and sticks etc, we didnt get to the auction in the end.
    Well wear!

    No sorry I didn't pay much attention to the rest of the lots bar the ones I was interested in.
    There was a big crowd at it. There must have been 300 at it.
    Thanks.

    Well wear! Sure a Ford like that is an investment, and the mower looks like new... Is she on 30" wheels? They look small in the photo....

    They are 34"
    I'd like to try a 38" and maybe a 18.4 tyre.
    The owner had it as a sprayer and hedgecutting tractor.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,387 ✭✭✭Markcheese


    On the mini zero grazer, would it be possible to stick a small mower on front of a round baler?
    Or if You have front links...
    I suppose if youve got to go out and get a tractor with front links and pto, then get the baler and mower, then put floatation tyres on everything the mini zero grazer might start looking cheap...

    Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire is where most the big combinables operations are, go out into Fen country and Norfolk/Suffolk for Veg.
    You'll have Dyson(ad-plants) and Munks up in Bourns country, a little further south. They'll own very little land just a big version of a contractor contract farming(farm for a set price and share any profits).
