my wife refers to them as a pension plan
They are semi retired now.the 168 was the only tractor on the farm in the late 70s early 80s..the 300s do a bit of topping pole driving .rear silage grab for feeding on a out farmand farm maintenance. And they might hit a ploughing match or 2 around Christmas. 20k hrs on the168 the 390s have just on the 5kHow many hours are each of them clocking up? What type work do they do.
I'll have to consult a different book if I can find it, can't remember off the top of my head. That's a very late 168 serial number though, last one was 261173
That's the uncle's one. The website I may have miscalculated how far from the end it was. I think it was bought new in October 1979 with a 1974 massey ferguson 135 also bought new in 74 being traded in against it. Has one owner from new but has probably been round the clock one or 2 times, anything it ever needed it got.I'll have to consult a different book if I can find it, can't remember off the top of my head.

M=8 speed transmission, B = high clearance and H = heavy front axle .It was totally different over here with the Q cab regs in June 77 edit 76 that was the cut off date for 100 series apart from the 135 with the Cabcraft QD cab
