Re: The National Library of Wales

For some reason this didn't catch on . This is the McConnell hedge trimmer, first ones released were fitted to Standard Fordsons.

Re: Wind Farm.

how long can the concrete sit in the mixers for? The Senior Engineer would probably refuse it and send it away if it arrived much more than an hour after being batched.

Re: A few phone pics

Mate has a 400 hp Class on his drill, it has IVECO engine and I think he said a ZF CVT back end. The tractor was a lot cheaper than a 370hp JD, about the same price as a 300 hp JD.
