CTM training day

Nigel Mountain came to train us on the operation of the CTM sugar beet cleaner. Getting ready for the sugar beet campaign which starts next week. Fantastic machine loading 30 tonnes of sugar beet in under 6 minutes. 

New buckets

The beet basket and grain bucket have arrived for the JCB 434s. 
Geraint is showing the scale of the bucket by fitting inside. 
Beet basket has a fold down lid for safe road transport and cleaning mud from under the beet cleaner.

Sugar beet cleaner arrives

We have purchased a CTM 9003XL sugar beet cleaner for our own sugar beet and work for British sugar. 

12 runs left for 2014 harvest

We have only 12 runs left until the combinable crop harvest has been completed. We have built a track 2000 metre long to get to this field. I feel a Bloody Mary coming on. Well done everyone. Thank you very much for your hard work.
