    Drive it’s own wheels up on a plank first to give clearance to roll the duals into place.

    I'm nearly sure that It's a 236 version in those, I may have a brochure here for one and will have a root around in the coming days to check.

    To every member of the forum that assisted me in the last few days. Thank you it was great to see the new Lexions in the flesh. Impressive machines with serious output. Fairly tired now, as I was working nights the last few days as well but it was hugely worth it.

    Do they do all the gluten free harvesting or are there other contractors covering different areas? I know Glanbia were looking for growers in north Leinster.

    I was talking to a lad was on the chaser last year and they left Tullow at 4am to drive to Meath . He ended up coming back down the M50 with a fully loaded chaser when they ran out of trucks. They are a bit of a sow at speed.

    Contractor would be doing their best to get tru the work but in a year like this would there be much oats left standing by the time they reached the furthest away crops?

    They'll have to leave a lot of it behind before they lose the contract I'd say

    Glanbia decide on the number of combines required and supply them for the contractor to operate. If crop is left behind it could be said that there wasn't enough combines supplied to complete the job.

    Spent five hours cleaning down the combine with the road compressor. Parked her in the Nissan hut which is a treasure trove of Armer and Sugar factory bric a brac . The owners father was a Politically appointed Director of Irish Sugar before it was privatised. The shed came out of Carlow factory.
