New County Tractor For 2008??

As the next ftf model is going to be a County does this mean that there is likely to be another county going on general release by Britains.

  Like the 6600 from last year was based on the general release 5000. Cant see RC2 re-designing the front grill just for a limitd edition model. Perhaps a County 1164 could be on the way?

Perhaps Andy may be able to shed some light on this?

Well the 1164 is a 6 cylinder machine so not possible from the 7000/7600 skid unit. Though they have my permission to make another cock-up! ::):)

Roadless tractors are longer than their Ford brothers. This is due to the transfer case added onto the gearbox housing to transfer drive to the front axles. Hence Britains should not just badge the 5000/7000/6600/7600 model as a Roadless because it would not be an accurate representation of the real tractor ;)

But Britains often do things they shouldn't!

How about a real unusual and probably a good seller - a County Seahorse?

The real ones were only based on Fordson Majors, though some copies based on 754s(Ford5000) and such like have been made.

As I see it, the options from this casting are County 754, 764, 944 and 964

Britains have plenty of options for both 5000 & 7000 castings without them having to label a model up wrong. I would say the most obvious choises would be:

5000 Casting

774 Equal sized wheels and white County style cab

6600-four  Smaller front wheels Early models had the County style white cab & later versions had Ford bubble Q cab.

6700-four very similar to the above with white County Style cab. Main difference was Ford 6700 style gearbox.

7000 Casting

964  Equal sized wheels and white County style cab

7600-four  Smaller front wheels Early models had the County style white cab & later versions had Ford bubble Q cab.

7700-four very similar to the above with white County Style cab. Main difference was Ford 7700 style gearbox.

I will try and post pictures of a few of these.
