Well my David Brown has gone off the boil, it had been on 4 times and not sold, so I went and viewed it and made the people an offer on it, then go away for the weekend to find they didn't pull the auction like they said they were, and it managed to attract a bid.....

Why cant people just stick to a deal!

Yikes - I have just got of a post for old Land Rovers and was complaining that having both stationary engines and old rovers was expensive (although good fun) - and now you introduce tractors! - Well for my pennys worth they all look great - but I have always wanted a vintage caterpillar dozer to play with - or one of those Farmall F12s (really close together front wheels...)

I may have to sell a kidney or two to pay for this bucket list of toys...

enjoy your tractoring !

Best

 yes yes yes!!!!!

I'm drooling now Smile

One of yours Mr V?

I appreciate they are pretty dull on road runs as 1) you are probably not allowed to put them on a road with metal tracks and 2) a snail would out accelerate you - but as I like Landies, tractors, track type tractors and stationary engines and steam I might as well hanker after other money grabbing hobbies as well!

what else can I throw my hard earned cash at - a wishing well perhaps!

A poverty stricken forum member residing in the North Midlands would be a start! Smile  Would have a tractor myself if (a) I had somewhere to put it and (b) I had some means of transporting it! Helped restore a few for folks in the past though.

Indeed it was, one I bought many moons ago, wish I still had it sometimes as I come across something that needs a "nudge". It was a bit of a hand full, straight 6 diesel engine, 6 forward gears, 2 reverse, top speed of 9.8mph and a 4 speed pto on the back.

How she came home...

A Ploughmans lunch you say Mr Matth92 - I see no cheddar - no doorstep of bread - no pickled onion to blow your nose off and no deceased badger to stick it all in - nice tractor in what looks like working clothes though! Smile

Will hopefully be taking the tractor out this weekend if the insurance comes through, now got a drawbar for it, and bought a rough old trailer to go with it that needs a bit of work

I'd like something similar to this. Light to move and just a little different to normal tractors which people can see most days of the week.

How old is old?

Post by DeepBass9 on Fri Jan 30 2015, 16:54

I had a 1968 MF135, and now have a 1977 MF165 in daily use. Is that old, or just well used?
