    Kioti DK551C - Good or not & what to look out for..?

    I am going to view a used 2008, 900hrs Kioti DK551C with FEL tomorrow and would like some pointers of what to look out for - common faults, wear points etc... The tractor appears to be priced too cheap, but I do know of the owner (a competitor) and know he is getting out of contracting because...

    Siromer 204E hydraulics

    Jonny - I took a look today at the 204S we've got. I was wrong before - the cylinder (16 on the attached diagram) is fixed to the cylinder cap (14 - located outside of the oil housing). I cannot see how it is fixed, but I assume you have checked that there is no obvious thread designed to screw...

    Global Milk Price - is it affecting you?

    Thanks Steve - that's interesting to know and clearly a similar situation to the UK. According to Dairyco (a UK government organisation which is paid for by a levy paid by milk producers), the UK average milk price paid to farmers for November 2014 was 28.91 ppl (pence per litre). It is...

    Global Milk Price - is it affecting you?

    Although now living in Spain, I originate from the UK where I had a dairy farm milking 400 NZ Jersey x British Friesian cows. During my time milking there were some very tough times where the price we received did not cover the cost of production for long periods - and while this was not my main...

A lot of people here have started using old IBC cages - the metal cages fitted to pallets which have a liquid tank inside. They take the tanks out, leaving the cage and then fill...

    Jinma / Siromer 244E Hydraulic Failure - ideas please...!

    Had a call this morning from my neighbor - I normally service and do any repairs for him in exchange for borrowing his tractor if we need an extra one for our contracting business. My problem is that I am currently working away and don't get home until late - so any ideas or experience on...

    Beach cleaner, sand sifter

    What about this? We had this made for de-stoning. It does clog up sometimes if there is lots of weed, but if you added depth wheels it would probably do a great job on sand...

    Anyone Ever Built a Manure Spreader?

    I've also considered a side discharge (like the photo, not the chain type), and wondered if an old chipper could be converted? I thought maybe it could be adapted with a large vertical hopper to hold the waste, feeding into the chopper unit, with the discharge tube angled 45 degrees to the side...
