    6 metre.
    Ya we'll see how it goes. Can add them if we need to. Depends on the ground I suppose.

    Mines only 5m, I suppose it protects the tines more than anything.

    Well alright I think, although some on here say the gearbox can give trouble, but then so can any gearbox. Haven't had anything to do with the smaller ones myself so can't comment.

    It has a turbo so no need to tweak it and it used to pull excellently.

    I would have known that tractor well. It's on it's third owner. Know it's first owner well and would have put a few days work on it for it's second owner up to 2008.

    2nd owner added the second assistor ram and the Turbo to it by a local expert.

    It's a very clean tractor and a new set of tyres would set it up for a long time.

    They are quite old now, at least 35 years old. @Bog Man had one. The Wagtail mechanism is the same as any Vicon of that age to be honest.

    I considered the later red ones here when we were changing the spreader but ultimately we went a different route.

    Some reading here;

    I don't see a torque pedal and there's two gearsticks so I assume the former.

    Didn’t they still have 2 sticks even if torque?

    Near 18 years since my neighbour had a pair of them.
