Impossible to get them here in Oz but have seen some survivors that are in as new condition on vintage tractors in the UK. I don't think they are available there either. If they have circu...

Re: George Fowell

Seat pans for vintage tractors are readily available if that is the style you need. By the way, I think it is good to be different and is why we ended up with a Liner roughrider dumper, not many of them at rallies.

Re: Fowell Dupmer

What a little gem it is. We call this size roller a foot path roller just on it's size width wise and total weight. Usually around 3' wide front and rear rollers. This one looks to have a very wide front roller/s and narrow rear.
I do like it a lot. Thanks for posting the image.
