Shopping For Tractor Parts In The Dismantling Yards.

If I was a painter I would tour old farms and dismantling yards painting pictures of old vintage tractors and farm machinery.  We went to a tractor breakers the other day and we walked passed hundreds of dead and live tractors.  

There must of been millions of pounds (Punts) spent on  this agricultural machinery over the years.  It was a rather surreal experience to see such a sight.  I even felt a tinge of sadness for them.  Old and loyal servants discarded and broken for parts.  The sight of the old tractors moved me to write this 2 line poem:

The Old Tractors Lament.  

My coat of paint is now painted in mother natures rust

Please somebody buy my parts before I crumble into dust.

_____________________________

Some old Fordson Majors or Dexta's.  Sadly they are probably gone passed the point of being returned to back to their former glory.  Vintage tractors are like land.  They are not making it any more.  Number one son came away with his tractor parts and he was very happy with his newly found treasure.



Anybody restoring any tractors at the moment?  What's your favourite tractor?

Joke:  What do call a man who use to like tractors but he doesn't anymore?

An extractor fan.

    1. Good day everyone, i'm Marie, If getting herpes cure was that easy then why do a lot of people still suffer from herpes?. i was diagnosed of herpes back in 2013 and i was also told it has no cure, i have been leaving with it since then, but i kept praying and doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies about people getting cured through herbal medication, and i have always believe in herbs and its medical properties, after doing so many research about it i found Dr. Bulukona and i discovered he was a professional in herbal medication and he has also helped many people, i contacted him through his Website: (drbulukonaherbalsolution.webs.com, bulukonasolutiontemple.webs.com), we talked on phone and i confirmed he was genuine, i did all what he told me to do, i received the medicine, used it as he has prescribed, and glory be to God almighty i am completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. Do not be deceived THERE IS A CURE FOR HERPES, doctors might tell you there is no cure but WITH HERBAL MEDICATION THERE IS A CURE and if you need it contact Dr. Bulukona Email: bulukonasolutiontemple@outlook.com

  4. My neighbour has an old tractor I saw him only the other day going along the road, although from a distance he looked more like a steam engine! Vintage is best I think

    Something special about old machinery, whether it be tractors or other stuff, me thinks I was born in the wrong era at times.

    1. It's an old joke but it always makes me laugh John. I often say I was born in the wrong era. The old machinery gives us that dewy eyed nostalgia feeling doesn't it? You will have to join a railway preservation society or buy an old car or tractor to restore. Thanks for your comment John.

  6. Actually once the space is created here and the donkey work done I'm considering an old motorcycle, a Bantam perchance...

    1. Sounds a great project John. Are they dear to buy? Tractors can cost thousands to repair and restore. They are like an old house. When you take them apart. You never know what you are going to find. Would love to see posts about the Bantam restoration John.

    1. Hi John. It all depends on how much you can do yourself; sandblasting, painting, mechanics, welding etc. It's much better if it's a do it up project rather than buying something in pristine condition. Look forward to following your Bantam motorcycle restoration project John.

  8. The original grey Massey-Fergusons, learned to drive on one of them 50 years ago. They look so small against the monster machines seen on the big farms now.

  9. We have a diesel grey Fergie, Cumbrian. Harry Ferguson revolutionized farming with his 3 point linkage. The small tractors look like toys compared to the modern day tractors. I like the Ford tractors from the sixties and seventies. Thanks!
