Hey Gough

Have you got some of this equipment?

 

Don't think it would work well on our 30-40 hectare fields.

Comrade, that is big but there are plenty of them up that way in Queensland.  Mine is 41 feet wide and it gives enough problems.  There doesnt seem to be any advantage to having it that wide pulled by two tractors.  Split it in half and it must be easier to operate and manouver around the farm.

Re: Hey Gough

Thought by the pictures it would be a bit tricky getting around the trees.

 

There is always someone who has to have something bigger than anyone else.

sadly there is a lot of that in the farming community.  The "look at me" syndrome is alive and well and tends to drive agricultural debt to unsustainable levels. Ultimately it engrosses their operation, they go broke and then the whole industry has a look at them on how not to do it.
