Re: Tractors for those that ain,t bored by e,m.
1No Ford 5610 (yard tractor)
1No Ford 7610 (On Hedge Fail mostly)
2no New Hollands, 6640 and T5060 (Main work jobbies)
1no Ford County 1174 show tractor( Concurs +, in Moggy language), Possibly the finest example of a restored County in UK, I put 4321hours of work over 6 years to rebuild from total scrap. (It cost in parts alone 3 times what I paid for my first house in 1973 !!! ) Might post some piccy,s when I get a bit cleverer on here.

Hi - we passed an immaculate County on the A470 just south of Rhayader a few weekends back ( it was part of a convoy looked like they were on their way back from a show or a run) - sort with the grey 'quiet cab' - weren't you was it?

Otherwise, no tractors here now - sold the last (DB 885 - t'missus reckons because I'm too fat to squeeze through the 'orrible narrow doors on the cab) - use quads for day to day stuff but miss the front loader.

Welcome to the forum.

Aye - well we do call this place 'six hours from anywhere' - you got them thar' fancy dual carriageways and motorways down there - none of that modern fangled stuff here.
