So the new toy? A Suffolk paddock sweeper. Jim Hewitt from RT Machinery drove up from Bucks to deliver the sweeper and to set it up on the back of the tractor. It took Jim six hours of driving and two hours to set it up... and Paul one hour to break it. Yes, too fast around corners is my guess...anyway he has broken a shearing pin!
So, I can only give you a limited review, but I expect it is going to save us hours of poovering time. The grass will need to be kept well topped and I expect we will still use the poover some of the time, but first impressions are good....not least because of the reduced noise levels. It does scarify the land as well as sweeping up the poo, which will encourage the grass to grow too. Amazing how I managed to poover for three years...when Paul takes over due to my bad back we get something that goes on the back of a tractor!
