Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

You'll put an edge on them just as quick with 36 grit ceramic fibre backed disc on a firm vented backing pad. 125mm or 180mm, I use both. No need to remove then either.

Re: Jcb fastrac

Yup, just like every over 'agricultural' groundworks contractor. You might get away with it for years, saving yourself a fortune. You might also become a test case vs HMRC;)

Bloody hell Dan, talk about a can of worms. Light blue touchpaper and retire! :eek::D

Re: Auger unit for tb016 and tractor

I'm doing the same, sharing with my farmer neighbour so will watch with interest. I was thinking the Digga PDX-2 would fit the bill? 20-50LPM.

Re: Vacum slab lifter

I have tons of room on this job- it's to lay slabs on top of an existing hoggin courtyard path. I've always considered laying and adjusting big slabs a 2-man job? Pain in the arse when you lift them...
