A few more ploughing & sowing
A few more drilling and ploughing
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
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.
If I stood still too long I would be ploughed down, drilled & rolled
A few more from 2018
A few more drilling Winter Barley back in October
A bit more field work from the 2018 Winter Crop sowing season
I recognise the 7310R from the Kilbrittain tractor run.
A few plough & drilling teams motoring on last October
Fastracs would be a rare find for you.
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.
Don't discourage anyone from buying new cause there'd be no secondhand without.
A few more from October again
A few more from the Autumn of 2018
A bit of Beet being pulled over the Winter
Not too often you see a late all steel tandem axle Lee trailer now!
The McCormick is also a rare find, looks almost like the new Zetor Crystal with the red wheels
From memory there was a second one there but I could be wrong.
The McCormick is a span new machine and when I did arrive in the field though it was a Zetor myself. The same wheels and tyres were used on the older McCormick it replaced.
A bit more beet being pulled including a little bit with the Drone
A few tractors from the FTMTA Farm Machinery in Punchestown a few weeks back
A few Combines, Foragers and Self Propelled Potato & Veg Harvesters from the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show
Given its a fairly rough night out there, a few videos from last Autumn when the weather was a tat bit warmer and settled.
A few implements from Punchestown
