It's a "CELLI" power harrow.

The drivers are over at the ute having a cup of tea and wondering if one of them should go back to the yard and come back with 924 and a 14 ton land roller because the ground is taking a bit to work down. :)

I'll never leave a disced feild not rolled down ever again  :-[

Once I get the feild power harrowed down I'll give it 2 inch of irragation then harrow & roll it down,that should be good enough. :-\ :)

Hey FB, :)

Yes it is the old britains power harrow with the hopper taken off,there are a few pictures of it already posted up on the forum.

The subsoiler is the only part I've added.

I'm making it into a chlli harrow because it's already the right shade of green and that brand has a good name over here.

cheers fp.

We'll the beans were harvested last week,not the best crop the farm has ever grown I put that down to working the ground about 4 weeks later than I should have in the spring.

pic #1= out spraying 2L/ha of round up on the land to take out a few flat weeds.\

pic #2=after two passes with stubble cultivator thought it best to tidy the land up with the roller before getting off the paddock untill the fall when the paddock will be sprayed a 2nd time with round up before being sown down to winter wheat with a direct drill.

Oh I think so as well NH2.

I'll be out with the camera in the fall with my trusty drill for a few more pictures.I might just keep adding to this thread with a wee story line and a few pictures as time moves on in the farming year.

Next year when I may just sow some grass then spray it off when it's about 1inch high and call it wheat to make it look more real with the combine in it.

Cheers FP,hook loader might even make it out there one day. ::):)

After a few nice rains the ground was starting to look like the start of a decent crop so may 20  savanahwinter feed wheat was drilled into a stale min-tilled seed bed @110kg/ha.No fert was used at drilling the soil test showed 40 units of P in the ground already so the crop will get it's fert in the spring prob in the form of cropmaster 20 (20,10,0)@ 300kg/ha X2.

Drilling with 412 & 716  :-*
