    Had good results from Autoglym Super Resin Polish on tractor panels. Use some WD40 on the front mudguards to shine them up a bit.

    Is this stuff suitable for hand polishing or are you lads using a machine?
    Do you finish off with any other product afterwards?

    Super Resin Polish is manually applied, ideally you would follow up with a wax to help seal the surface. Their Aqua Wax is handy for this

    Fitted the bare-co PTO cover today. I had to completely remove the yellow corrugated section from the rotovator side due to interference with the clutch bolts & existing cover on the rotovator but that was easy after heating it in some boiling water to soften it.

    Also modified some existing brackets last week so that the tractor can't lift the rotovator too high, doing so would damage the PTO cover & also probably break the PTO drive if in gear !

    Had next door's trimmer here yesterday for a few jobs, new flails, new flaps and the pin between arm and dipper. He lashed out on flaps from mcconnel, bet they were pricey too!! There wasn't that much wear on the pin tbf!!!:whistle:

    Some wear on that pin on what looks to be a handy enough trimmer like a PA 95 or so, were you short for 2 comp flails.

    Its a PA 500, thought you'd spot the two T flails :deyective: That's a Alviti tip, comp's hit the bolt on the drive flange so two T's on the end stops the bolt getting bent or broke!!

    Just moved it a bit yesterday, forgot what its like to use a switch box!!!:tdown:

Three of them. The mig welder is great for getting them out much better than the stick welder. All 3 of them came out easily enough. A new set of studs and manifold gasket used. It’s great when a job goes with you, which is not always the case.

    If everything went with us we'd be finished most days for dinner timer, farming is mostly a life of changing (some would say failed) plans.

    Yea the strut is is gone on the seat. The chap that drives that tractor has left all the air out. If he worked it with the seat pumped up he would be thrown all around the cab. Might fix for him some day!
