Single rotar rake width

We’ve a 4.2 kuhn and you’d need most of it to rake 3 light 10’s into one narrow enough for the baler. You’d think it’s too wide but it can surprise you

You’d need to move the wrap dispenser upwards so that the wrap still hits the centre of the bale, and it would take a few more turns. 8 turns normally gives a 4ft bale 2 full layers, it could easily go to 10/11 turns to get the 2 full layers on a 5ft. You’d probably have to let out the lift arm a bi

You’ll probably need to split the 2 halves of it to fit it, as in drop the carraige that holds the hook to get at the bolts underneath, so that should leave it lighter, is it a hydraulic push back one as they are heavier. Myself and Dad lifted a standard hitch into the back of the golf, it was more

Been running an ezguide250 since 2012 and done plenty of spraying with it only time it misses a bit is my own driving and that’s just with the match box antenna, not the upgraded one.

Hands

Use skytec aria work gloves here as much as I can and if it’s gona be a wet or messy job pull a pair of black milkers over the top. Find it much better that way as you keep the gloves dry and always find my hands sweat when I just have nitrle gloves on which makes them a lot worse

New calf with broken leg

Had one here broke a front leg, got it cast and it came grand after. The guy that cast it put a bandage, then a strip of hard board about the size of a ruler front and back of the leg then plastered over it, told us to take it off in 5 weeks or if it started to look really tight. The idea of the bo

Ifor williams detachable cattle body

We used to do it a bit then got fed up of the messing and got a flat aswell, far handier, but the flat does more work here and some of the times you want the box you want it in a hurry not after half an hour putting the body on! Anyways, we undo the bolts, slide the body back till it tips back and

iIs there a name for these shed feeding doors?

Have them on the back of the shed here, about a 4ft sheet on them with the hinge just above middle. 2 bays are strapped together by welding a length of heavy flat from one frame to the other on the outside of the pillar at the bottom, then on one frame the vertical side bar extends up past the sheet

BDGP selection

As lady haywire said you have to do it on icbf website. You need to be on the desktop version if logging in off a phone to do it. When you go onto the self selection tab the deferral button is more or less 2/3 of the way over the page in the little bit of writing at the top, click it and it’ll defer

Have a soft hands and a roller type here and have used a neighbours tanco type elephant trunk, id like to change them both for an elephant type.

I wouldn’t agree, there flexing in the opposite way to a straight time and don’t seem to break that often. If you look at a lot of the older lely tedders they still have a lot of original tines, or Atleast ones that every bit of paint is gone off and there rusty all over but still in one piece

Bucket or Fork for Loader ?

Bucket deffinitely, a fork is no use for scraping up sloppy stuff. And as said above a lot handier for stone picking and general moving like bags of meal etc. Also handy if you need to go saw up a smaller branch down the field, only need to bring the bucket and you can pile them into it

Strange alright, if you hold the left button then start the engine without turning off the key in between will it save it?
