picked this little gem up the other day













wasnt cheap by no means but there hard to come by here. had to hook it up to my mower to take care of those dutys this summer. its a tad smaller then an 8n ford but the hp is a lot stronger at 28 hp

Nice little tractor Bert. :D Hope it works well for you.
I didn't know Leyland put gas burners in any tractors.
Maybe just for export to the States?

Nice looking tractor looks like it would be real handy. So did you find it in Wis.? 28 hp will handle mowing real well.

Nice little worker Bert. Sure looks to be a bit bigger than an 8N though. Might just be the pics. Should do you just fine with the mowing.

Great wee tractors, I have a diesel model, and the later Marshall 302. Just been using the latter to sow barley, I like the Q cab :roll: but did you know they were designed by Harry Ferguson :)

Heres a pic of my two, the blue one has moved on, but I still have the red one, and the ED 40

Missourie, that photo was taken in spring 99, when I had plenty of young eager drivers,so Icould use the smaller tractors. The ED 40 had just returned from National UK Road Run, which that year was held in Ayreshire in Scotland. Our Vintage club decided to attend, so 28 tractors drove 17 miles to Belfast, caught the car ferry to Stranraer, and then drove 60 miles to the run. On the sunday we did the 26 mile Road Run. On the monday we did the return journey, and had raised £1600 for charity, as well as having a great weekend. :D :D
The blue leyland in the pic was sold about 5 years ago, after I had bought this Marshall 302, which was the next generation of the model
