    Thought it might be nice to have a thread that we can post random photos of what we are at or something we see.

    The apple tree is blossoming nicely :thumbup1:

    Your rhubarb is putting up a decent fight with the nettles too. :D

    Random pic from me.
    Don't be fooled, it still gets used often enough. Once again it's a not so modern piece of equipment but i think we probably got this one second hand. I do remember the shafts being cut off it and a drawbar put on. :laugh:

    It is, the whole lot has cropped up all of a sudden, must weed them out :thumbup1:

    She looks clean enough, what make is it and what width? It's similar to one we have here.

    Don't think there's a make on it.
    It gets used to roll after planting strawberries sometimes. The tractor for that is on 80" so I guess the roll is possibly 90" max.
    My favourite bit about it is the little flaps just above the bearing. They lift up so you can put oil or grease in there. I expect when it was new it would have been oil, but it's worn a bit so grease is more appropriate.

    your up late hi.
    yes, its a small waterfall not far from here, kinda peaceful spot.
    id say it would look well after a shower or a wet spell, it looks from the water marks only to be running at 1/3 rpm.... if you could call it that.

    Grand ploughing that is i'll have you know. :angry: :lol:

    Ah I know the hydraulic crossshaft that controls the front furrow has a habit of moving when the plough is being swung over. I'm trying to get the uncle to change it for a fixed (top link) type.
