Trailed forager (Finished)


Recommended Posts

i was given a broken up old britains forager (the orange bottom) and didn't really know what to do with it, so i found an old cheap plastic self propelled forager, i took the header and the chute off, cut the header up to make it look like a grass header, and made it all fit together, dad got me some metal tubing from work which is what i have the chute sat on at the moment, it's sat sideways as i had just glued the header on, tomorrow it will be primed then i need to nip into halfords to get some ignition red, i'm not sure what will pull it yet, most likely be a deere, was thinking of a Britains John Deere 7020 with an Ertl 6410 and a marston silage trailer alongside?

Thanks lads, i'm not sure and i can't ask the lad who gave me it as i've fallen out with him since he gave me it, just a one off for myself, tried it behind the 6930 which will be pulling it and it fits fine and shoots straight into the trailer alongside at a perfect height, once this is all finished it should be appearing in the silage competition  ;)

I'm pleased with it so far though, just about to take it outside to get her all primed up then going to nip into halfords on saturday to fetch my ignition red  :P

not many members have taken on a trailed forager and yours looks good Josh,can't wait to see it finished  ;)

Thanks Jamie, not long now she's just sat in the study waiting for the paint to dry, will go to it in the morning and take the masking off then i'll put some pics up of her finished  :D

Thanks, and ha that's probably what i would've done, it's just i had the main body of it and a cheap forage harvester so i thought i might as well!

I Haven't rely got enough time to convert a forager as I spend all day repairing Tractors and are up to my eyeballs in converting Britains IH 956 and 1056XL's!  ;D

Like I said great looking conversion and look forward to seeing it compleated. :)

yeah that's what i always think about starting a conversion, but then once you get going it really doesn't take as long as i thought, this took probably 2 - 2 and a half hours all together, now just working on my triple axle flatbed and going to respray my rotovator tomorrow as the paint had started chipping so i primed it again and going to put a coat of paint on tomorrow
