Thanks for the photos Ian. Looks like a nice rally. Is that a big Chamberlain articulating tractor in the fifth photo down? Never knew they built one that big. ;)

Hi Dave , As far as i am aware ,chamberlain did not make an articulated tractor . This machine was farmer built , using chamberlain 40K backends ..Shows the strenght of these machines .Made for 40 HP , this had a V8 GM powering it .I will check ,as i have other photos somewhere of another couple of them joined together giving 4WD .

Here are a few more from the rally at Biloela. I did not have any tractors here as it was held approx 350 miles from home and it was good to be a spectator for a change.

Any guesses who this is on the D4? Hint-name at the top of the origional post.


A well equiped English built Bristol (about 35hp)


Oliver 1850


Steiger Panther fitted with the Caterpillar 3406 engine and powershift transmission


Steiger with scraper in tow


Another set of Chamberlains set up in tandem. The cab is from a K series Bedford truck. These tractors have been re-powered with 6 cyl diesels and about 240hp in total output.


Close up showing the hitch

Thanks John for the shot Ian. Good to put another face with a name.
Also the other equipment, and newspaper article on the Goos' tractor. Made an interesting read. ;)
