TSA & TM early first cut
Here are pictures taken last friday of a very early and light first cut in Co.Cork,Ireland. Contractor is Cronin Agri Bros and they are raking with a TM165 and a TS 135A is pulling the Pottinger Torro silage wagon.

Last one-as you can see weather is just fantastic in Ireland at the moment! Looking forward to this yrs silage season-plenty of pics to be taken.

Hope to catch up with this contractor again this summer when he'll have 4 silage wagons on the go.

Re: TSA & TM early first cut
surely the more powerful and heavier tm should be pulling the wagon rather than the tsa i'm probably wrong and i'm sure somone will correct me!

Re: TSA & TM early first cut
Thanks for the comments lads! Love the Irish country side and i always try to get a few shots that show its beauty.

@ Tractor Tim-the firm also have larger wagons and I presume their bigger tractors are used for pulling them. I think a smaller tractor is used for the rake, but that was on other duties. However, I was surprised myself how well the TS135A handled the wagon-think they are rated at150-160hp at 5.4tonnes. It flew around the field at its ease

Light first cut due to the dry Peter?

@TasCowboy-yes,partly due to dry weather, and paddock had got to srong for cattle. Irish first cut silage usually gets into full swing the last 10days of may and continues into early June-with exceptions of course. This farmer took advantage of the high dry matter content even though the grass was very light in comparsion to Irish standards where framers tend to favour a very bulky first cut
