    The DD rings on the Horsch have cracked a bit more so we are using the Hiatus in Harvesting to take them off . Kellys have a Tool for dismantling and tensioning them on reassembleing them . The end has dished in releasing the tension. It will get new bearings.

    It is only the end dish is badly worn where stubble catches on the frame and I think it has done somewhere over 3000 acres .

    Fine looking job lad, did you have any problems with the trunk twisting when welding it? There was a lot of heat in it

    What was the hardest part, was it setting up the pivot points for the rams

    It was some bastard of a job had to keep tacking and twisting it and then when you. Got around to the far side I tacked it to a channel iron and welded it inside then.

    She will have to earn her keep first haha

    Frame was the easy bit the trunks weren't easy.
    The pivot points weren't easy either it was pure guesswork.
    And my mig packed it in when we were at it was badly behaved for a few days and then went.

    No I was going to buy a jasic but I bought an swp instead
    Shit I would have went for that as it was second hand I wanted but my man had no second hands the day I went in.
    Oh mine wrecked my head the wire feed was getting really slow it couldn't keep up in the finish and eventually it just stopped along with the gas
