    Best low budget 4WD tractor

    I run a Mf 3060, mainly with a 6 tonne timber trailer and all I can say is I can’t wait to upgrade to something that actually goes in 4th gear and doesn’t get over taken by cyclists. I think a tractors well worth the investment so spending a bit more that 6k would be a thought. You’d really want something that goes 50kph, it doesn’t sound like much but there’s a big difference between 40 and 50 on the roads

    Today's milling

    Would lengths of 4x1 be ok as spacers? Does it matter if they’ve been treated? Got loads of off cuts from my last barn. Tia

    Today's milling

    It’s was the final excuse I needed to get a mill, too heavy to pick up with a telehandler to stash at home and forget about. 13/15 ft long

    Poorly Horse Chestnut Tree

    The leaves browning is leaf miner. Pretty much every horse chestnut in the country has it, shouldn't be of concern. Maybe a good crown reduction to keep its size in check and potentially bracing if you are concerned about the union. Best bet is to get a tree surgeon out to give you their opinion.
