Last night I managed to finish up the harvest, I now have to bale up the straw and cart it to the farm.
Finishing the last few cuts of the harvest.
I had another run in with a car driver last night. It happened when I was moving the grain header to the next field. I was pulling out on to the road and because it's quite a long trailer I was trying not to get it wrapped round a gate post then this car pulls up and stops to let me out, or so I thought until he started doing that inching forward thing that they do. Eventually he was so close that I couldn't go forward without running over the front of his car so I stopped and was wondering if I could reverse back in to the field when he dropped the clutch and piled in to the side of the trailer tipping the darn thing over.Well that left us in a right old pickle and no mistake, it's not like I could call the AA or anyone. What these guys don't seem to realise is that I have the power so I thought 'what the hell' and gave him some of his own medicine. See the short video below if you are interested in the out come.
After I got all the machinery back to the farm I went and bought some stuff to cart the bales in after the straw was baled. I wanted to use a conventional loader and trailer set up but after some experimenting decided against that idea. With practice I may have become half decent at loading the trailer but for sure at the moment I was struggling to place the bales in a reasonable way and it was taking ages so I opted of the Heath Super Chaser http://www.ls-uk.info/downloads/87/17148. To make this work I needed to change my New Holland baler for a different one because from what I read the one I had wasn't compatible. The Chased wouldn't have picked up the bales. While I was at the farm shop I saw a Ford TW35 which I couldn't resist http://www.ls-uk.info/downloads/22/10688. I will give a review of both Mods when I've used them.
