Again, just a bit of fun....sorry no prizes apart from a big sloppy kiss from Marky or Udi :D :D

We are gonna run a harvest comp, ok its a bit late but us mods have been busy ::)

Rules:

1. Each person is allowed a maximum of 1 entry in this section, each entry can contain a maximum of 6 photos.

2. The pictures can show any part of harvest (Including model fires Gav ;))

3. Any tractors/machinery used in this category can be re-used in another category....... but try to keep it realistic.

4. It is ok to use older machinery in for example the 00s period considering some contractors and many farmers still do

5. A seperate section will be made "in this board" to allow people to comment on the entries but any OT posts under this title, other then the entries will be deleted.

6. When submitting an entry you should first try and indicate how many acres your outfit harvests and try to match the machinery used with the workload......... KEEP IT AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE ;)

7. Once all the entries have been received, a poll will be created in each section where each member will have a vote (total vote number to be confirmed depending on entries)

8. WE MAY 'COMBINE' (NO PUN INTENDED :D :D :D::))  ALL TOPICS IF NOT MANY ENTRIES ARE RECIEVED

Competition will run until October 15th, i know harvest would have finished in the real world i guess but allows some members to pick up models from Spalding

*RULES SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY MODS*

we harvest with this second hand mf 760 combine hauling the crop back to the yard with a 1984 mf 690 and 3 ton weeks trailer and a new addition to the fleet a 1985 mf 698t with new 8 ton marston grain trailer

as the previous lads move on to the next field we use our older mf 590 and mf 124 baler with cooks flat 8 sledge to bale, still use conventional bales at mo, as easier to move for the pigs ect,

had the 590 from new, and used to be one of the main haulers until the 600 series came out

finally we stack the falt 8's into 64 bale stacks using the newly bought 290 with mf80 loader on her, which has recently relaced the mf 550 which we still have but mainly for low barn work,

then cart away with another of the old mf's our 575 which again was purchased from new, have a soft spot for this tractor so we tend to use her for the lighter work like carting bales with the cooks bale grab trailer, a lot easier than using manual labour and the olf trailer to cart
