  1. Heard from an installer that Clearview stoves don’t meet current regs!? Is that right and if so are they still highly rated against say a Woodwarm equivalent?
  2. Search eBay for green laser 1Mw. You pick something up for £5ish
  3. Plenty of green lasers available on eBay, cheap as chips.
  4. Old topic but... Im looking to install 450m of stock fencing, sheep netting with 2 strands of plain wire. What sort of money am I looking at to do the job with split chestnut posts/strainers? Nothing complicated, easy access, site clear and level and old fence is gone. Also if anyone has a price for same but in post and rail (chestnut?) Thanks in advance Craig
  5. Hang on....let’s not forget they were convicted terrorists..if not murderers themselves, certainly supporters of scum that murdered innocent people, in the name of republicanism! Imho Corbyn eta al are traitors, engaging with terrorists whilst British troops were dying for their country! “It’s all too easy for someone to kill for their country”...wtf would you know!
  6. What I like about the setup in my post is that it seems to do a pretty good job of raking, riddling, brash and logs. Not sure about the need (or idea behind) for two independent grabs. Lots of options out there for excavators but nothing I can find for a loader. Looks like it will be a fabrication jobbie. Thx Craig
  7. Does anyone know if this sort of grab/bucket is available in UK? Seem pretty popular in US.
  8. Thx Gareth, I have my eye on a used Kidd 8ft topper 2016. Chap wants £1400 no vat. Wondering how the no top link system holds up? Cheers Craig
  9. I’m in the market for a new topper. Been looking at a Fleming 7’ fully offset. Tractor is 65hp and I’m on steep ground with a few rushes to deal with. Any recommends appreciated
  10. I know it’s a subjective question but how much do you think you would need to live a comfortable (subjective again!) retirement if you were to retire today? Let’s say at 60yrs old and hopefully with no borrowings (mortgage etc).
  11. Start as early as u can and take any risks early too. Get on the property ladder ASAP and knuckle down. A big house that you can downsize when u retire is a great pension addition in its self. It makes me laugh when I hear/read so many younger folk giving every excuse why they can’t buy a house, yet I see young lads/lassies in agriculture busting a gut, working all hours and managing to do it. Trust me it wasn’t easy when the interest rate was at 14% either!
  12. Tarring all BTL landlords with same brush based on your own limited experiences is wrong and narrow minded. Letting agents take a risk based approach to the whole process, plenty of landlords have suffered at the hands of unscrupulous tenants. The whole BTL game is now tipped more towards the poor tenant than the wealthy nasty landlord. Get rid of BTL landlords and see where things go....
  13. Surely any system that will allow you to have multiple heat inputs will do? Have a look at this site: https://www.heatweb.co.uk/ I have a heat bank from them with WBS, oil boiler and immersion heater. Has further trappings for solar thermal which may work for ASHP?
  14. Mick did the Kubota loader come with 3rd service? Wondering how easy they are to retro fit. I have a Kubota 1153 loader.
  15. Johnny Mercer? New fresh approach!
