That iron horse is huge! It must weigh more than most 4 wheel gets! How big of plow does it have?
Thanks for sharing.

Is that Anzani huge or is that guy just short? What other attachments are there for the Anzani?  What kind of engine gas or diesel?  Nice to see old tractors still working.  Thanks for the pictures. Do you have any more?

We imported a pile of DB saws and some walk behinds to the UK a while ago, you did a great job on the restro, looks great.

 

Those Iron Horses are big tractors, Agria, Solo and Holder are a few others.

That iron horse definintely looks to live up to it's name, that thing is a beast.

 

 

My boss is from Scotland, grew up somewhere outside of Glasgow.

This couldn't be Scotland, every one here know that a scot would be wearing his kilt during plowing!!  :smilewink:    We can solve this whole problem with you not having enough Bradleys to around. I'll trade you a pair of DB's  for an iron horse tractor and plow.

Nice to see the walkers out and about.
The DB seems to enjoy its new homeland.
