Very cool!  Thanks for sharing!  I'm going to need some info on a few of those rigs...that crawler is super neat.  Definitely looks damp over there, but hey...you had some FUN!

That was a common coment from US farmboys that saw Scotland in WWII. Unbelieveably straight plowing. Good Luck, Rick

A video would be great, that way we get to hear the sounds of the machines and maybe you could narrate.  Thanks

Brilliant furrows by the Scots. I would love to have a go at ploughing myself. Hope to have a crack at it this summer at Biddeden Tractor Fest in England with fellow MOM owners.
