    We often came home from school and got behind Johnny Reddy in the little Black car . If you were driving slowly you were called JohnnyReddy .

    I had a lad here last week delivering a load of turf with a 35 and 10 x 6 trailer.
    You forget how nimble these tractors really are.
    I pointed to the shed where i wanted the load tipped, fully expecting him to turn in the wider part of the yard and reverse up towards the shed.
    No, he proceeded to drive up towards the shed, as I thought to myself 'whats his plan here?'
    Of course he turned on a sixpence in front of the shed, and only had to use reverse when backing into the shed
    A super little outfit, ideal for the job.

    Neighbour has a mf 35. He calls it "the red rocket". It needing a few tight tie rod ends adds to the adventure

    I don't think so. Neighbour had a 2wd leopard. It was 35k on the road. Definitely no brakes on the front

    Neighbours had a Leyland with a lorry engine too god it used do some speed.
    Old lad tells me of a Ford that was around back in the day that was well capable of overtaking cars.
    Mate had a 3350 john deere last year and it was doing 47km

    The deprecation on that tractor will be ridiculous.

    Unless he's going to keep it for 20 years .

    Won't matter a lot then.

    You'd wonder why he didn't just get a 4wd though

    Is it the future version of a County 1184 I wonder? Serious rarity.

    Presume it must be destined for some specific job at an industrial site or something? Doubt its destined for farming??

    How much of a deposit wud you have to pay when ordering it, cus if you said when it arrived, actually don't like the look of it I'll take a 4wd instead. The dealer wud never shift it.

    All depends whats involved in converting it back too.
    An axle and driveshaft may be all thats needed (not that an axle would be cheap mind you)

    True enough.
    Few years and there'd be plenty accident damaged machines to get bits off I bet.
