  1. It has come to my notice that Ammonium Nitrate fertiliser in the UK is now at £680 metric tonne. (US$994) I am not sure if that is for immediate or spring delivery. I'm thinking it uneconomical to buy at that price but for some crops it is essential. Its going to result in a few less crops planted in the coming year. Even if there is less demand how much of an effect will it have on the price due to energy costs. Also alternatives like urea will be in strong demand. Chicken poo may be in demand 😂 Any of you learned people have any thoughts and opinions?
  2. Iirc in Barbara Marsh's Corporate Tragedy the ag companies would.take it in turn to strike one years and the following year if they had been successful the demands and strikes would hit the automotive companies. Even to the point that one ag company went on strike as it was their tutn to strike even though someone else was already striking. (Or something like that? ) My point being what goes around deere this year may go atound the automotive companies next year? Maybe?
  3. Thank you. It is so obvious now you mention it.
  4. May I ask what you mean by this? I have often failed to grasp how some people don't understand that if they are amenable and helpful to someone who is providing a service they tend to get a far better service. We all cotton on pretty quick to a curmudgeonly old git who is trying to screw for everything they can get, and we treat accordingly.
  5. Very interesting about school bus design and construction. There was a school bus accident here several weeks ago. A car went at high speed into front of bus. Car driver was killed. Most kids were not wearing the seatbelts. Several kids had injuries I think the worst were neck pains and a few with broken teeth. But our school busses are regular service busses and coaches.
  6. Probably a UK import? I think many European tractors have a diffent hitch again. I dont suppose it had a number plate when it arrived?

    Eeeek I thought £1.40litre for diesel was painful. €2.00 a litre is £1.71 litre.
  8. If they are UK imports they will have headlights in the lower grill and side indicator lights on the side of the cab and the biggest give away a Pick Up Hitch with either a hook or drawbar. I dont know how you guys manage without them.
  9. I read somewhere that what is the 85 series all over the rest of the world is badged as an 84 series in North America so as to avoid having to have the new line of tractors tested at Nebraska. I have no idea if it correct though.
  10. WhatsApp was down too. More inconvenient that stalkerbook being off. Apparently Instagram was off too 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️ I suppose they put themselves in Facebook jail. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
  11. Following this. One of the most interesting topics fir a while.
  12. I have been following you on this with bated breath. You are indeed in our prayers and thoughts. Hopefully day ten is the turning the corner day. But I am concerned about the coughing up bloody sputum. I pray your next post is that you are both improving. Please Keep us informed.
  13. I found all mine in a box. My youngest daughter loves them.
  14. Well I did it. I got a second hand dell laptop and I have installed Cinnamon Mint on it. I like it so far and so do the kids . Yay 😊😊
  15. Asked a trainee emt if they been shown how to start the truck with a crank handle. Explained because they emergency vehicles they have to have a hand crank. 10 mins they were looking for the handle
  16. Creep up to someone pumping a tyre up and shout BANG! In their ear. My nine year old was pumping up my bike tyre earlier. Hilarious 😂 😃 😄 🤣🤣🤣 My 7 year she was weak 🤣🤣 The eldest was not amused. I'm gonna pay for it
  17. Have sent you a pm regarding road registration etc.
  18. https://www.tractorparts.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product/&product_id=1566 maybe something like this. Possibly not overly secure but could work maybe
  19. I thought you had made plastic wrapped round bale silage before I read the post. I am reliably informed by friends in Norway that the direct translation of the Norwegian for round bale silage is, " Tractor egg."
  20. I only get the magazine for the International Harvester Heritage Association. The Association is also affiliated the International Harvester Collectors Club (IHCC) in America as Great Britain Chapter #45. They do have quite and interesting members section of their website with an archive of ih literature available to members. I'm gueasing they are always looking to expand their collection. https://ihha.co.uk/ I really should sort my subscription of Red Power Magazine out🙁
  21. If you are too dumb to remove screws you are probably too dumb to read sticker. Anyway stupid is meant to hurt!
  22. I seem to remember an incident that was on the news here where some idiot had life changing injuries from inserting an airline up their b#m. Iirc they were suing the company claiming it wasnt a safe working environment as the hose had swung aound and inserted itself up said orifice. Unfortunately there was cctv of the incident......
  23. The Same tractors we had had an economy mode on te pto, worked really well. Did accidently run a forager harvester on the Same Explorer 90 on economy mode once. So pto run at 1500 instead of 1000. Didn't seem to have much effect on tractor or chopper in short term we did it. Well 3 days 🤦‍♂️
