I hope you have enjoyed these few snapshots of the exibits at the Classic Tractor Show, Special thanks to everyone who supported the Show! See you all next year!.
I would like to dedicate these pages to good Friend Sydney John Latchem who passed away Sunday 1/2/15 John as he was always known worked with me in Agricultural Contracting in the early seventies, he was plaqued with health problems even then but fought through life to live as normally as he could i well remember all the many farms we worked at in Somerset Wiltshire and Dorset John had a very keen eye and good work ethic, he was liked and respected by everyone who crossed his path and the world is a much poorer place without the likes of him in it. RIP Buddy from the Little Man!!
Just found this site. I am one of a group of volunteers with a Massey Harris (780) Special we are conserving as part of the Alford Manor House Lincs Museum collection. It is a 10ft TVO hydraulics .
What a brilliant site and work you have done with these combines I bought my first MF 515 when I started contracting in 1989 for £200 and then progressed up to a MF 625 super 2 2 years costing £1500
Many thanks Steve for your kind comments, glad you enjoyed your visit to site,hoping to add a lot more material in the future.
