Hi all

On the 3rd Oct went to a local ploughing match it was what we call a disaster day, the ground was hard even the big tractors struggled to make a good job I managed to make a mess with a capital M, I got nowhere came in third out of four.

After some modification to my plough and adding a 56 lbs weight I went to another ploughing match on Sunday 9 th  Oct.

Weather good modifications worked well. my finish let me down but for my ploughing I was awarded First prize :love:

As I say what a difference a day makes little more tweaking to do but very happy with the result so farEck finish Anstruther.jpg Douglas finish.jpg Frank Anstruther.jpg George finish Anstruther.jpg Weight bracket 2016.jpg Scotch skimmer 2016.jpg 56 lbs weight fitted.jpg E Cummings throw out.jpg Eck Cummings 4 tops.jpg Eck ploughing.jpg E Cummings throw out.jpg Eck Cummings 4 tops.jpg Eck ploughing.jpg T Tweedie throw out.jpg T Tweedie finish.jpg T Tweedie finish.jpg George throw out.jpg George 4 tops.jpg George ploughing and finish.jpg E Whotton throw out.jpg Eck wotton 4 tops.jpg Eck Wotton finish.jpg

Looks good. Nice pics. What make and model is your tractor and the others? Remember in life, when you stop learning, you are as good as dead. Good Luck, Rick

Looks great to me. Just to turn a furrow would make my day, no matter what it looked like.

George's tractor is a Gutbrod and the blue crawler is a Ransommes Crawler I believe.

Great photos yet again and good to see horticultural tractors making an impact in Scotland; very little down my way sadly.

Hi

We in Scotland were in the same position it started as a fun day at Scone rally Scotland by Frank and an old friend Gordon we used to take part in a static horticultural display we were invited to franks working area there were two of them this year there were ten of us.

We asked around at local ploughing matches if we could put on a demonstration of horticultural  tractors ploughing from there we now have our own class

at most of the matches in our areas the Borders Fife Tayside Perth

The last match there were seven outfits and the day went well

This is the third year that we have been invited to the Scottish championships. So from small beginnings

Contact your nearest ploughing match organisers see if they will let you demonstrate  the horticultural tractor ploughing I am sure they will find you a corner for you to practise

If you do not ask you will never know

Hope this helps :thumbs:  :angel:
