  1. Most Maize is grown now for Base feedstocks into the "green" bio digester plants as they need stable base feedstocks even though these plants could run on waste products etc for stable and consistent outputs the favour maize. I grew up on farms etc and yes maize can be one of the most land damaging crops due to the harvest season being so wet usually and the run off and erosion from bare land over winter due to not being able to work it when wet ! A good portion of Fodder or sugar beet is also now going into the "green" energy market as feedstocks for the Bio digesters or to produce Ethanol for the fuel markets!
  2. Petrol contains currently 7-10% ethanol as "bio fuel" component usually from either the Sugar industry or Corn growers in say the US. Diesel is currently 7% bio fuel which will be derived from natural oils either virgin Vegetable oil, reclaimed oils, and animal fats all reacted with Methanol to produce the fuel. Many many users have had filter issues with fuels Red and white as the current base stock fuels are the same and have been since 1st January 2010 which are Ultra low sulphur fuels as these are the only fuels that will work with DPF and SCR emissions control systems. The difference comes in the Dye firstly then the Additive package that's added to the fuel when loaded at the tank farm so the high grade expensive V power fuel is the same base stock as Farmer joes Red diesel both with a % of bio fuel in them and the difference being the V power has some very good effective Additive package added and they bump the fuel price accordingly, all diesel has to meet EN590 specs. A lot of issues arose when the addition of the Bio fuel was started as the Bio fuel is an excellent cleaner it strips dirt and residue from tanks etc and this in suspension causes the blocked filters etc this is ongoing as lots of sites have older tanks and machines with dirty tanks and event the tank farms I guess ! I know at least two farmers who only use GTL (gas to liquid) fuel at a 5p per litre premium as it has no bio fuel element and its much much cleaner and apparently environmentally much less harmful and since running on it have no filter issues. https://certasenergy.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Cleaner-Fuel-for-Cleaner-Air-Brochure-NEW.pdf
  3. If you can find a wheel to fit with a bigger axle bore then some one (like me) can make spacer tubes to fit old to new if that makes sense? David
  4. Try using 400x8 6 ply trailer tyres and tubes we used to fit these as standard replacements on the barrows at the college for the horticultural and Equine departments and saw very few punctures in comparison to a standard barrow tyre! something like these? 4.80 / 4.00-8 TRAILER TYRE AND TUBE MAX LOAD 335kg 6PLY TYRE 400 - 8 400X8 TYRE WWW.EBAY.CO.UK MAX LOAD 335kg 6PLY TYRE 400 - 8 TYRE & TUBE.

  5. Hi I have a friend who is a fabricator and builds these kind of body’s and lockers etc amongst his other talents and is based just outside Scaynes Hill ! give Paul a call on 07966 247210
  6. Emailed them but Gmail is saying it can’t deliver do we know if they are still trading ? If so I’ll call them instead ! Any help appreciated
  7. With today’s technology I believe the camera equipment will read every numberplate and the laser the speed of each then runs the number through a database which will determine the class of vehicle and then cross reference to the recorded speed then wallop your done if your speeding ! It’s simple algorithms I’m guessing and a shed load of data !

  11. I’m sure there is/was a company that specialised in small carburettor parts and kits ! I can for the life think who it is/was or find them online ! Anyone help ? Zama and Walbro parts I’m after ! Cheers David
  12. Mobile camera van ! Those and most of the yellow Specs or Vector cameras are linked via ANPR to the DVLA and can automatically tell the type and class of vehicle therefore they can apply the appropriate speed limit instantly!
  13. Got done for 60 on single carriage way three years ago if I had been doing 57 I’d have been fine !
  14. Give Paul Lincoln a ring on 07966 247210 tell him GT gave you his number
