I think I have a schematic drawing of one in a heavy vehicle mechanics book .
Like a boxer, flat setup?
Not really, there were two pistons in each cilinder faceing each other meeting in the middle the position they fired at. There was a setup like a rockershaft on each side to which the conrods were connected to taking the power down to a crankshaft under the cilinders. The whole thing was ridiculous its no wonder the concept more or less died out.
this is the way they should have made it. Could be in production soon
I won't say you're wrong but I don't recall seeing or hearing of it
One for @nashmach. Just about to roll over to 11k hours. Cough cough I meant 10k hours there, honestly
Oops thats right now you mention it . I better go back and edit that before anyone notices . In truth that tractors hours are unkown as the cable was gone for years for the tacho.
It isn't often your in a field that was photographed 160 years ago.
My picture is taken looking at where the other was taken from in 1859,the photographer was a founder of the Royal photographic society his cousin owned our farm back then,the field I'm in belongs a cousin of my wifes and although I'm Umbilicaling from my pit some 1600m away it took me 30minutes to get to the field by road.
She's only worn in!
These late nights with a bottle in hand are starting to tell...
That is either 45 or 46 years ago.
I don't know either of the people in the photo , but knew someone mentioned elsewhere.
Neighbour but not a close relation. Father and sister of Anna May McHugh NPA.
What paper is that taken from .know of a person mentioned too
Biatas. The magazine used come in the post. Published by the Irish Sugar Company.
There used to be an odd picture from the Bogman estate.
Here's a vid of them loading the blades last Monday.
Any idea what length the blades are, 46 metre blades went up locally, each one is 9 tons so 27 tons plus the nacelle, a fair bit of mass rotating at 15rpm.
We were shaking some fertiliser today. All our machinery is old but in good working order, I had to laugh when my father said its a bit like the antiques roadshow around here!
If it does the job what difference.
Would this be the usual time for you to be spreading ? Or a 1 off due to scarce fodder ?
I was up your country only once , in 2010 , and was surprised to see I reckon half the meadows cut on the 5 th of June. Back then , there wouldn't be 10 % cut here , a bit more nowadays alright.
Today’s job , started this job last October!! Finally got round to tidying it up
You are alright, we wouldn't be much different here
Its the first time we ever spread this time of year, after getting the soil tested it was found to be quite low in p and k so the recommendation was to spread 0/7/30 now. I'm not too sure about the results, we got it tested 2 years ago and the requirements were very different and also the results this year were almost identical for each field even though some got lime, some got slurry, some had 2 cuts of silage taken off it and some was just grazed? We are lucky we have plenty of fodder and I think most lads in our area area would be safe enough.
You would see plenty cut early June about here, we would usually be aiming for the first or second week if possible. Last year was an exception but the last few years around here there were a few fair to good weeks at the end of may/start of June and to try to make haylage we have to make the most of the weather. There is some difference in weather between here and your part of the country!
