We bought an old Leyland for veggie patch for shop. Gets a job through spring and summer sowing/scarifying and spraying needs/ carrots/ beet root etc. Also gets a job at lambing time with transport box.

@Tha Ulsterscot, Is that a Jones Balers Mini Tedder behind the Marshall?
Yep, its a mini tedder, just found it this past winter. Dad had one years ago, so I knew it would be good for what I wanted. It is to replace a Bamfords Whuffler, which was just a wee bit narrow to leave a full width sward for the round baler.So far its working a treat. Keep the posts coming, there's bound to be a lot more oldies still working:cool:
