Hi pdw
Intersting machine :thumbs_up:

Thats got to be one of the strangest Fordson conversions, as usualy they take the drive from the ends of the rear axle by chains. Canot work out how they have don it on this :dizzy:

Have you got a shot of the back of the unit ?

Please, please, please, upload the pics to the board ... I cannot see anything. My company blocks images from photobucket, imageshack and such services.

It is amazing just how many applications the Fordson tractors were put to over the years. It would be good to see a close up of the rear. There must be some kind of drop box to get the drive fore and aft.
Also like the yellow DB.

Thanks
