  1. Give us a clue? For example I have a jd6620 125hp 4wd but it's near hull. Is it big enough. Do you need air brakes? 3 point linkage.Etc Won't nick your job. Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  2. For hiding in oil seed rape you mean I presume? Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  3. When things don't cooperate, children, adults or animals. I find a dose of cold water helps. No physical contact but a good shock and wet inconvenience. Probably classed as assault. I'm not all for the territorial landowner with instant anger and loud profanities. Nor am I for the ignorant tramping over other people's property. Somewhere in the middle such as asking permission I reckon. I do fencing for people, often to keep dog walkers off private land. Yet they damage the gates or fence or punch through the hedge further along. My wife summed up an instance a couple of years ago. We was working on an estate which kindly let someone plant a memorial oak and scatter ashes. Relatives parked up and come through asking why we where installing fence and gate. We mentioned dog egg problem. They had pathetic fluffy toy dog with them. Went to memorial, came back so far with doggy bag. By they got to us said bag obviously vanished in the collection suspended decorating the spruces. My wife said " I'd like to go and hang it on the oak tree" Doesn't sound nice, but you have to make it about them to get the message home, people are so self centered. I've never understood the logic of many dog owners. Why have an animal you think you need to take out in all weathers if your premises aren't big enough or it doesn't get its exercise in the working day. You don't keep a cow in a small back garden then take it for walkies. As for horses and hunt, just throw the rule book out. It doesn't apply to the mob! Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  4. Or a sling\strop yank it out the way. Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  5. I've found chopping wood at source is a big time saver. No real tidying up and reduces multiple handling. With the fiskars they don't handle misses very well. If chopping on concrete lay a plywood sheet down for protecting cutting edge.logs wobble or glance sideways from time to time. My Oregon sawhorse like most is kaput. It has paid for itself many times over in time and back saving. Make one similar Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  6. Have you tried searching the forum im sure Rob D put a link up. Thats how i got mine. Try winch and alaskan in search Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app

    For some feel good and solutions have a read of this thread http://arbtalk.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=32273 Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  8. You will save one trip outbound. Whilst needing to develop an effective way of loading and unloading. Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  9. Our iPad crashes every time I try to use a video link. Then it offers to send a report to tapatalk which in turn gets sent back undelivered. I'll just use it from browser for now Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  10. Eye of a needle job. You must get it on your self. The neck of the bottle. The pleasant thing about having a poo is the simple ness of it. That would stress me out. A favourite trucker moment was a discreet colleague of my dads climbed into his private cubicle. (Tipper) dropped overalls, dumped his deposit, Yanked overalls back up and clapped himself in the neck with his turd. He's not the only that's done it apparently . Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  11. There is miles of it trimmed like this roadside round orchards and fruit growers. Never heard of a nut coming away followed by blade. It must of happened. Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  12. Or cage a couple of beavers on it. Leave them for a week. Animal rights probably get upset about it though. There will be a domesticable insect or mammal that would oblige. Followed by fungus. Environment versus instance impact will often be different in timescale. I hoe my garden. It takes time. Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  13. Had bad press of becoming 2 halves. Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  14. Do they just come as a single unit now?😂 Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
  15. Fart powered stump grinding . I am pleased to see the like minded attitude about litter on here. For years at the nursery when we dumped prunings etc back on the land. Why o why couldnt anyone grasp a plastic bottle or old gloves are an eyesore on a field? Though its now illegal i dont have an issue with banana skins apple cores roadside. I take all my rubbish home at end of the day. It came in the lunchbox. Then back to the kitchen where the waste facilities are handy. Sent from my LG-K100 using Arbtalk mobile app
