Cookes 2 Speed Winch - scratch built

Recommended Posts

Not too sure if this is the right place for these pics - but here goes anyway...

Cookes 2 speed winch on a roadless Super Major which is a Scale Down model tractor kit with scratch built winch, being an accurate copy of a friends tractor and winch 10 miles down the road.

Thank you Nigel... Your Scale Down kits are great to work with... the hand brake levers off the E27N made excellent levers for the winch.

It seems a long time ago since i ordered them. I will post pictures of the Roadless 90 once it is finished, that I  got the Ploughmaster 6/4 axles for from you that arrived the other day - but don't hold your breath cos it will be a while yet.

When the owner of the real Roadless Super Major bought it from Southampton, it was in a sorry state. It was only 2-wheel drive, but was actually a 4-wheel drive, as it had the sandwich still in it.

He completely refurbished the engine and all other parts as needed, removed the non-original cab, then gave the whole lot a re-spray. The bonnet was re-sprayed orange to give a more industrial look to the tractor.

All this work was done just prior to the 2005 National Tractor Run at Gisburn. In fact if you have a copy of the Tractor Run DVD you will see this tractor a couple of times.
