Roadless 75 & Hydrocut Mk4 Hedgecutter / tabmodels


Recommended Posts

This is a current build I've been wanting to build for a long time. It's a Roadless 75 with a Mk4 Hydrocut hedge cutter. This outfit features in an old Hydrocut brochure from the early 70s and I've always thought this combination looked pretty impressive. Not many Hydrocuts were mated to a 4wd tractor because of front wheel clearance issues, but this one has it's hydraulic oil tank modified by means of having it angled at the bottom edge to allow for this. It is also unique as it sports the old flail head. Only two pics to work from in the brochure!

Started with a Britains 5000 removing all unwanted parts. Front grill silvered and 75 decal applied, headlights detailed, bonnet decals drawn up and hydraulic pump along with pump guard scratch built.

Main frame of Hydrocut Mk4 scratch built, primed and painted. Arm is cut in half for ease of transport and so that either a flail head or saw head can be slotted on.

Hi Charlie, thanks, glad you got it ok, the other one I sold is being returned, the Post Office must have been playing football with it before delivering it to the customer! Very frustrating, especially after putting long hours into it only for it to end up in pieces at the final stage!

Hi Lars, thank you for your comments, yes I will be building more County 7600-four models as soon as more 7600 2wds become available. I've only been to one local show here so far in N.Ireland as I'm relatively new to this scene. I will hopefully be building another batch soon, I will keep you posted:-)

Thanks guys, I'm a sucker for detail! I will definitely check out Bor/Brians work, haven't had a chance to have a good look around the forum yet, but what I have seen so far is very impressive

Brian is from up your part of the country.

Here's the record of his builds, going back to 2009. Some amazing pieces in there.
