Had a good day on Sat. past, with over 2 dozen outfits turning up. Great not to have anything to do with organising, and just enjoy the Crack :D :D Heres a link direct to the pics taken on the day, the wee Zetor performed well, so pretty chuffed.

It was a bright day but cold, and a heavy team of rain early morning, on top or recently applied slurry didn't make for easy going. £850 was raised for the Chest Heart and Stroke Association.

Great pictures, Thanks for posting them. I like seeing how things are done on the other side. You show that big yellow 4wd a MH, is it a Massey Harris?

....James
James the yellow tractor is a Muir Hill, which used ford running gear, with a drop box sanwiched between the gearbox and rear end . the engine was mounted higher than usual to sit over the front axle, and the drive shaft was taken out of the front of the drop box, to drive the front axle. They were made more for industrial applications, but a good lot ended up with contractors as they had 6 cylinder engines fitted, and were more powerfull than anything offered by Ford themselves, The only competition here in the equal 4 WD was County Tractors, also ford based.
