304.jpg Ever seen one of these? Its a 1957 Fordson Major Diesel(common tractor) with a Ohio Ditcher tiling machine. Tractor was specially designed and setup just to operate this tiler with hydraulic ground drive with forward and reverse shuttle. Although its pretty rough looking don't let looks fool you......its very capable and wouldn't be afraid to take it to the field right now! We've laid 4",5",6" and even 8" tile with this machine. First year we owned it we put 35,000 feet of tile in one fall. Have now graduated to a speicher 6060 6x6 tiler so don't need this one anymore. Its for sale if anyone is interested. Luke

That's neat. It would look great restored, and would be something few others have at a tractor show.

With all the water in our ground, it would be good to have. Most our wet ground has been tiled, but right now I wish we had more in the ground!!!!!

Yeah I agree Dan, we have lakes sitting in the fields here yet and supposably more rain on the way!!! I can see it right now.......after all this rain its gonna dry up, the corn and bean ground is gonna work up in chunks so we have to hit it 3 times with the cultivators before planting and then here will come the drought until harvest then it'll turn to mud then snow again! Aren't I optimistic! LOL! Luke

Thanks for posting the pictures of a really interesting tractor and implement. It looks like it still has a lot of life left in it.

The machine is intended to be used to put drainage tile in farm fields to dry them out........
