    Old Tractors Ploughing

    I have 4 Vintage Fordsons, one of which I just did a full restore on, and is pictured elsewhere on this here forum IIRC. Being a bit of a fan, one of the best hybrids of this tractor was the 'triple D' which was made by a Ford dealer in Essex , Ernest Doe & Sons and stands for 'Doe Dual Drive' It was probably one of the first true 4wd tractors, built to deal with the heavy Essex clay, and the need to pull ever more furrows.

    I was offered one a while back unrestored for a bout 12000.00. and it was too rich for me at the time so I never took it .. one of the ones in the following vid (or very like it) sold for 63000 or thereabouts a few years ago .

    The earliest were based on the Fordson power major tractors (which was the one Ive just restored), and later continued with each skid unit that ford produced thereafter for a good few years

    Lovely machines, and apart from a county super 4 or 1884, I would'nt have anything else at the top of my Vintage wish list, largly because I grew up with them or their variants as a boy :wub:.

    I like this TW35 one ...... so the 1884 was county's conversion of the TW 35, a great tool,. this ones doing 9 furrows which has it loaded, but its not pulling it down after the driver knocks in the back six, you can hear him bumping up the transmission, at about 1.40, and it doesent even grumble :wub: needs to sort out his depth at the back though .. muppet
