When Is A Smallholding Lawnmower not a Lawnmower? (When it looks like a fire engine!)
This is a welcome new addition to our smallholding fleet. She sits proudly next to my 2 Ford tractors. She only cost me 75 Euros and 40 for a new battery. I saved 27 Euro on the battery. It just shows it pays to shop round, doesn't it? Number 1 son painted her up and she goes like a bat out of hell. I bought her off a tractor mechanic who rescued her from the scrapyard. Have you brought anything back to life from a skip or a scrapyard?
We have another (Fordson Super Dexta) tractor arriving soon. She's 50 in December. Guess what? So am I. She's the best early birthday present I have ever had. She's also painted blue like my other the two Fords. Fordson means "son of Ford". Not many people know that. Will show you pictures of her and the restoration very soon. Could this be the start of our very own tractor museum?
What do you call a man who likes tractors. But he doesn't any more?
