At Work With Powerstar - Contracting


Recommended Posts

Well as most of you know I work for an agricultural contractor.

I mainly hauled silage, although have a couple of days with the bale boys, and spread alot of dung.

On my first couple of days I had a John Deere 6210 (racer) and a Griffiths 10T trailer, I was new, it was ok, it's all that mattered, here's some pics.

Then on day 4 I had a promotion and got the 55 reg New Holland Ts115-A, opened up to 140hp (when you pull the hand throttle fully back to tip a trailer there was a lot of black smoke  ;D) I then got given my own trailer to use all summer. So had to clean and maintain it. There are 3 teams, C,B,A c is like starting team, new drivers and that, B is progressing and A is the top drivers that do all the big jobs. I had moved up to B team, and was along a 52 reg JD 6750 chopper.

Summer work mostly, might haul a bit of maize in the next week or so depending on college timetable.
