Re: The Who clock...
This is classic WHO.

OP complains about the WHO clock + makes an erroneous claim about dates.

The ultimate answer? "You can't under any circumstances have dual tanks for red and white diesel."

No wonder the aliens had a look around here and fucked off sharpish.

Re: The Who clock...
It's happened more than once on the A59 between York and the A1.

On one occasion, the tractor had an apparently empty (it moved like it was quite light) high-sided box on wheels behind it. Presumably on the way back from making a delivery.

The other occasions, nothing was being towed, at least not on the leg of the journey affecting me.

Re: The Who clock...
To be fair, even on the gov.uk site, the rules seem to be ambiguous but one thing isn't, you can't under any circumstances have dual tanks for red and white diesel

Re: The Who clock...
I forgot to mention, agricultural tractors are rarely used for transporting crops it's not economical for large farms, they use a semi articulated tractor (that is a road tractor) with an agricultural trailer

Re: The Who clock...
That tractor you was stuck behind for 10 miles, was it hauling anything or was it it's hitch empty?

Re: The Who clock...
This memorandum of agreement appears to be a device by which the government circumvents the need to enforce the law.

Look at this paragraph:

"Using your tractor to transport agricultural produce
If you were engaged in an agricultural operation such as the growing or harvesting of crops, you may use red diesel for this purpose and for subsequently transporting the produce to where it will be sold or put to its intended use.

"But, if your involvement is limited only to transporting the crops, we consider the use of the vehicle to be for haulage, not for purposes relating to agriculture. This would apply to someone contracted, for example, solely to transport crops from an agricultural producer to an anaerobic digestion plant. There is no entitlement to use rebated fuel to undertake such journeys."

That's just carte blanche to use a tractor running on red diesel for haulage, so long as it's your produce that you're transporting. No wonder there's so many on the road.

I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the remote control and monitoring screen.

Doesn't have the same ring to it.

Re: The Who clock...
Ohaaaaaaaaar

The new combines and other implements are fully automatic, in that they can drive themselves, plant seed to an accuracy of 99%, turn around at the headlands, fold themselves up for transportation, the farmer only has to monitor

Re: The Who clock...
Also this from gov.uk:

The 15 mile limit for travel on public roads
If you travel more than 15 miles from the farm you should check with the DVLA whether you need a goods vehicle operator’s licence. There is no distance limit on the use of red diesel as long as the tractor is involved in an agriculture, horticulture and forestry activity.

Working on someone else’s farm
If you are contracted or otherwise engaged to carry out agricultural work at a farm, you can use rebated diesel in your tractor when:

driving it to and from the farm, (where you are going to use it for the contracted work)
carrying the materials or equipment that you need to do the work
removing any produce or waste resulting from the contracted work

Re: The Who clock...
From your link:


Q. Is there a limit on exactly how far I can drive with an agricultural vehicle?
A. If you’re doing a job that is exclusively farming related, then you can travel as far as you need using red diesel.

Re: The Who clock...
Q. Can I drive a tractor on the road upto 10 miles or so, using red diesel?
A. Certainly not. White diesel has to be used for this as it is not related to agriculture.

Re: The Who clock...
gph, perhaps this will put you straight on red diesel:

Q. Is there a limit on how far I can drive with an agricultural vehicle?

A. You can travel as far as you like on red diesel providing you are performing a task, which is solely agricultural.

Re: The Who clock...
It's the law that farmers are allowed to use tax-discounted red diesel to run farm vehicles on public roads for up to a mile between parts of the same farm.

I've followed tractors for ten miles. It seems unlikely that the farmers bother taking the red diesel out and putting white diesel in (dual tank vehicles are forbidden), when they go on the road.

This can easily add 40 minutes to your journey.

And people moan about being stuck behind cyclists for 40 seconds.

Re: The Who clock...
I know a little bit about farmers, well, crop farmers mainly, farmers not only get up at the crack of dawn but it's almost essential to work the fields throughout the night and with modern implements that have as much lighting as a football stadium, this makes it possible.

As far as tractors on the road, they have to travel from one field to another by road as some farms don't have contiguous plots of land.

Perhaps you should lean on the horn a bit louder, so that you can get your important work done a bit faster and leave the farmer with decaying crops?

Moncurs Putting Iron 11:48 Tue May 19
Re: The Who clock...
gph,

I take a different approach, but using the same parameters:


Given that farmers are supposed to get up at the crack of dawn.

But they frequently wait until the rush hour to move their tractors to one field to another, along a main road.


I thus understand that Farmers are Cunts.
