Is there a what scoff??
De Laval really they have 2 by 0 pulsation lik fullwood have they?
a lot of them sold around here in the last 12m inc 2 50 point rotarys
Very reliable equipment,I think they make their money when they sell it new rather than repairs.
2,50 point de Laval rotarys?
You must have a lot of cows so.....
No I was just asking were they de Laval parlours.
Dairymaster for marketing and for being dead sound, Full wood for the better machine, that's just my opinion though.
Using chains in parlour at the moment its hardship having to get out of the pit ..... would rather an adjustable bar that could move a few inches but would manage with a solid bar either ... just want to see what all yer solutions is to this... could buy the bar from gentleman agri down in Kerry but thats 260â‚¬ a side for what is a very simple design ... Are air gates good and worth the money?
Vaccum gates are worth every penny,there's no prizes for leaving the pit.
Can the gate be opened/closed without the machine being on? I'd often be walking up and down through the parlour with ration/calves/lime etc. The gates would suit me for milking but not the rest of my day if they couldn't be opened manually.
mostly all air now ,independent of the parlour
No vacuum gates only work via the switches when the parlour is on . Now they can still be opened / closed manually.
Delaval gates are ran by vacuum. A softer more gentle approach than the air operated gates by dairy master.
they can be adjusted to be more or less aggressive
Never knew that . Seen a gate working in a place last year and god help any cow that got hit by it . The speed that it closed at .
Can open my gea gates manually without machine running,it's my shedding gate that really should have been on air.
Things have been slow going here. Weather been a right pain. We decided to put extra timbers in 1 side of the roof for strength in case of snow drifts as it's lower then the shed beside it. Have the cow troughs in place now, the floor for the crush is in and we are putting a cow crate in it aswell and a strip of concrete is down in the collecting yard and getting ready to put a base in for the foot bath. The machine is to arrive any day so that be exciting to see aswell
The eagle has landed
Wats is that padraig?
The actual machine bits self. The hole parlour came on a 44 foot lorry last evening
Make sure all the motors are 3 phase straight away. No point finding out they sent you the wrong ones when they are putting it in.
Good advice there. Had a lad trying to fob off a single phase compressor to me here when a 3 phase was ordered "Shur it'll work, just split the phases"
are all the newer parlours 3 phase ?, i knew rotarys were mostly 3 phase but herringbones i thought were single phase, surely there is a hefty yearly charge for a 3 phase ? the merchant next door was quoted 10 k when he enquired originally
