Nice pictures. Looks like a wet day for the wheel horse.

On Douglas's machine? is he leaning on a hydraulic hand pump

for the lift?

I think your plot looks the best, George.

Thanks for the Pics!!! You men have some neat old iron over the pond!

 

Were you doing some type of plow contest? It appears each person had their own section to plow?

ALC the green tractor is a Rollo croft master they were made near Glasgow in Scotland<In Scotland we say made from girders

There were three types made

I have a friend ( handle Rolloman ) who has two and another has one if you go on the web put in Rollo croft master there are plenty pics

The Gutbrod titled Douglas has been fitted with hand pump  my Gutbrod is being fitted with pump that drives of the engine easier on the arms

:worshippy1: :reading_the_manual: :bs:  Thank you

Plooman did you ever see an Allen scythe plough working? I have one in my shed and always wondered how good (or bad) they are.. I don't have a working Allen scythe so cant test it but always seemed odd to me a small machine like that pushing not pulling, would be interesting to know.

The folks across the pond know how its done when it comes to plowing :worshippy1: .  I love to see the duplicity in the furrows :rocker2: ,,, you cant tell if it was done with a 1 bottom or a 10 bottom, its all about the quality of the job :thumbs:  not the quantity of ground covered or how much smoke one can belch out of the 10 hp diesel running it one or two gears to high :( .
