standen cyclone beet harvester

Recommended Posts

most popular choices on the single row machines were DB 885/990 > MF 135 > FORD 3000/4000, i have driven  these except the 990 & 4000  also drove one with a IH 784 unit.

the DBs were the better units as they had more gears MFs were always good for their lugging ability & the fords were ok if you could get them started  in frosty wether

hows the 1390 coming along ?

just need the resin to do some moulds i might use a diferent cab as it doesnt fit  the ertl body that well so im going for an ertl cast explorer instead as for chassis i might use the 1690 and cut the engine compartment down to 4 cylinder and also cut the back axel off and put a ford 6600 axel bell housing in instead im going to cut the weights off aswell to shorten the body also with the likes of the 6600 back end i can have britains linkage

all i realy need is decals as my printer has given up the ghost ive got the right paint the front wheels might be off a ford 6600 aswell
