"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."

Online plant suppliers

Best Place to sell machinery

For the new season, I have finally decided to upgrade my ride-on mower. This now leaves me with the issue of selling my John Deere X166.

Agri fab towed spiker.

Hi all, a customer of mine has a large lawn which I mow using his stiga park pro. The grass is in generally good condition but a bit of aerating wouldn't go amiss.
