    You don't see too many Hi tip trailers like the one you've captured Thorpe in Ireland!

    That and the 12m early Vaderstad ring roller were great finds :Thumbp2:

    Sound Nash, they are very very rare find alright. Very handy as a seed tender. I know of another one around but haven't seen it out for a few years now. It was also used as a seed tender. The 12m Vaderstad roller is own by the same farmer along with the 6175R & Kuhn drill and the 7290R with the Lemken 6 furrow plough pictured above. All operating within a half mile of one another.

    i wonder how many mortgages were taken out to buy some of that machinery. kind of makes you wonder what we are doing wrong that we cant afford a newer machine or what we are doing right that we are not buying a newer machine so we aren't putting ourselves into crippling debt

    That 8045 got a make over a few years ago (at the time it still was in good condition). It is in near perfect condition today. No sign of any leaks from it. Does a nice bit during the harvest as well.
    A few Fastracs around here but not a lot to be honest. Fairly rare to find them at tillage work as well. First time I've seen one ploughing locally. Seen one or two more with a power harrow or a trailed drill, the rest I've seen either at road work or drawing straw, silage or grain.
