July Timely Reminder

Safe harvest transport

Harvest at the Fordhams_275_206Harvest is a busy time of year, but it is important to take a few minutes to ensure you are operating safely on the road. Check all lights are working properly and are clear, brakes are working efficiently on trailers and that hitches are properly functioning and not excessively worn. It is illegal to travel on the road with unguarded spikes, cutting blades or other protruding sharp objects on a vehicle, so consider how you can make any transport arrangements safely.

    Comment: Useful advice for farmers except that it is not normally good practice to have the grain discharge auger extended underneath overhead power lines. perhaps a more appropriate picture could have been chosen.
