Insurance and theft

For what it is worth, I recently had an IFor Williams livestock trailer stolen. From the poor cctv footage (it was at the limit of range and at night) it took 5 minutes to remove wheel clamp and hitch lock and take enough wall down to lift the gate chain over the post, hitch up and drive off. Anyone...

Re: Perry bale grab - what is needed

Thanks Bob. That is pretty clear.
Doesn't seem too complicated . Currently I have an arrangement to work a log splitter, which might need to be altered in favour of the loader but I would need an additional hydraulic feed for the grab, as i understand it

Cheers

Perry bale grab - what is needed

Hi all. Too late for this year I fear, but what would I need to do to fit a perry bale grab onto the loader of my Dexta ? I have small bales and picking up a stack of 6 or 8 (?) would improve the longevity of my old and worn out back I haven't fitted the loader yet as I want to recon the rams first....
