as you all know i use it as an agricultural contractor flailmowing, also its used for general arable and at local rallys etc ;D

as pics show i have duel wheels for it and often pull a 4 meter power harrow on it, had it dyno tested last year and its 96hp ;D rated in the book at 90hp, not bad after 26 years hard work :o

bought it 5 years ago with 4920hrs and clock now shows 7500hrs, not bad going seen as it was bought as a toy to replace my tef20 fergie (was sick of getting cold with no cab)

any questions please ask
