Hi Folks,

I have been trying to boost my collection of early Britains Tractors and implements in the last couple of weeks. Can anybody tell me what implements where available around the same time as the Fordson major??

Thanks Rory

3 furrow mounted plough, 4 furrow trailed plough, single flat roller ( individual segments as were:) disc harrow in various frame colours, both could be raised if used with the curious linkage coupler/bracket that came with all E1A Majors, Vicon-Lely Acrobat, tipping trailer with lades, transport box with churns, sacks & bales, muledozer and Lister elevator, from memory ,

Shawnee Poole rear dump, only with the Industrial Major, timber trailer and not forgetting the most important implement of all, the driver with pipe in blue or grey. This is all assuming that you mean the E1A Major!

Regarding the pipe smoking driver, if you're going into geek collector mode, look out for:

1961:There were 2 moulds, slight differences in creases at trousers at/below knees and wide/narow underside of boots.

1963 version of both moulds had the word England on the inside of left thigh

about 1967: version changed from polythene to PVC plastic

about 1969?: cap & boots changed from brown to grey

All of the above in blue or grey plastic versions, giving a total of 16 variations. This driver deleted in 1971.
