  5. Another little project I’m working on, a Fordson Major based Chaseside Hi-Lift loader. For some reason I’ve always liked the look of these so I’ve finally managed to get round to replicating one. There doesn’t look a lot to show, but there’s some time gone into that bonnet!

  6. little base weathering on it now, have got the sides ready to go after the alterations i had to make to allow them to work, aiming for 30 odd years old so a base of surface rust all over ,but some original colour still visible, damaged the planks on the bed,will let it dry now and see how it looks before any more done ,next step the ladders for her.

  7. managed to get the 7000 done at last , had to sadly fix one of the doors closed in the end, as the cab wouldn't stay in place or keep its shape properly, step to far maybe for a resin one?? or a bit more thought for a second one , got the county to finish at some point , plus i have had an idea for another poss 5000 base conversion, using up something i have that got broken , so doesn't look right in what it was originally going on, time will tell on that .

  9. After a half year of building I finaly ended the 699 project. The base of this model is a Weise toys 1014. I used the cabine that i modified (correct color + put some details in it) I measured a real one for the hood and had it 3D printed. I put some extra details on it to make the model just like the real one. Also i made all the correct decals and put them on the model. off course i repainted the model in the correct colors.

  10. Finally gotten round to making another loader to match what’s on our 6400 (after the first one got stood on!) Still in primer at the moment, then I intend to do a bit of work to finish the tractor to a neater finish, re glaze the cab, new steps etc....it’s waited long enough!

  11. had the local dealer in yesterday, to give the combine the once over ready for the forth coming season, no issues found , bar one belt needed, he also ran over the 1250 for us , save two visits and any surprises when she heads out of hibernation for ploughing

  12. had this a while, but needs a few alterations round the bed area to a achieve what i want looks wise , little 5 ton dolly bale trailer ,will be an ex army weathered up colour, front and rear drop panels will be fixed , with a removable bale ladder on each end, the sides will remain drop side,but removable/working ,as will the ladders, will allow use as a general fert/ seed bag trailer then with luck . the beds spot on for two flat 8’s of bales ,which was handy , cutting the timbers taking me a while, but hopefully it will be worth it once i break a few ect to age it all , scales in nicely with the 590 or 550 ,

  13. My purchases from Spalding Tractor Fair today, great to be out again for all of us, and thought today seemed very well attended. Good all round selection of traders ,many familiar and some new faces which is good to see. Great credit to Colin and his team for all their efforts to put on the show, in what are still strange times, I enjoyed it immensely, and hoping everyone felt the same, also great setting with all that fresh air, well done everyone. Some pictures of my purchases; Britains John Deere 3050. Britains Massey Ferguson 135 in 3 side window box Dads Tractors 3 1/2 Tonne Pettit Trailer. Box I believe is marked wrong, but on the stand where i bought it the Gentleman had just sold the High sided version, so I wondered if lids got mixed up, as i did not notice this until i got home., anyway still a fantastic purchase. All three together. tractorman314.

  14. had to replace the decals on the transit, after i left it on the bench ,behind closed blinds as well, and still the sun bleached them, decided to reduce the font on the door ones as the first looked a bit to big , cant tell from the pics, but the cabs got a mf dealer book, and a east anglia a-z map on the seat ,as well as the paper on the dash. mud flaps fitted to the arches at the rear .front lights are in, just waiting on the clear coat to arrive to give them a glass look finish, also started the rear light clusters. happy with the beacons positions, but not sure on the height, also not that happy with the work lights on the bodys top frame, in the backs a few drums made up, along with a set of front fog lights for the cab, plus a cb aerial just need to make a base for that. got a mini art tool set on the way to build up for the rear as well .

  39. Hi there. Last week I discovered on our forum info about Spalding show. I realized have no onion hopper and onion gritter. I used my memory and build hopper which was used by our neighbor in Poland. Due to a fact that needs to be fast build I used glue connection and a little bit of hips material. I think that hopper was modified by my neighbor. Found something similar from fortschritt ( production East Germany DDR).

  40. Adapted this ROS Agco head to my MarGe Lexion. It’s not perfect as it puts the head a bit far from the feeder house and I should probably sort out a driveline but overall I’m happy with it.

  42. The maize planting finished on June 1st with all 3700 acres going into ideal conditions, and the subsequent weather of warm sunshine and some nice downpours have seen the crop get off to a flying start! This means our two sprayers and digestate tanker are now flat out trying to get their liquids onto the plants. The new twin axle Amazone 11200 is surprisingly manouvrable for such a large rig, especially sat behind our new Fendt 936. The 936 is a terrific machine and pulls the full sprayer up slopes with ease. Our 724 Fendt has now left us to go to its new home and its replacement should be with us in July. And whilst we were at the dealers dropping it off I had a look around their yard. This was full of tractors, especially older Challenger C and Es looking for a new home and not finding one it would appear! Also a couple of nice Valtras and quite a few big MF 8740s which are on route to our leviathon sized neighbours🙄 Combining is probably a month away yet and our Lexion 6900 is due its on farm Pdi by Manns sometime next week. We previously ran an early 760 hybrid machine with 30ft header, having run a 560 straw walker before that. Claas assure me that the new 500hp straw walker machine will see no drop in output against the old combine, with the added benefit of much improved grain sample and straw for baling. Unfortunately my plan to buy a classic old Fendt 926 fell through as the owner changed his mind about selling it. So we are still running our two old 716s as handy yard tractors and sprayer bowser tugs. Our contact PHR in Essex are keeping an eye out for another suitable classic and we hope to hear from them soon.
