    Agreed on this today. Been working in the South of France so no rust or rot.

    Very good price. From holland.

    Of on holiday to Amsterdam with Vicki and call en route. :whistle:

    You won't like it. Funny knobbly tyres on front.

    I'll give it a good home.
     
  5. Would it need storing at one of your satellite depots ?

    Have this one here complete with aftermarket TB turbo, it was absolutely gutless standard. I did intend to remove the odd looking fender mounted indicators, but then found out they were a factory fitment on this 1982 model.

    That looks lovely Ray. How long you had it?

    Had it going on 20 years now and it's not been used in that time, but that's an old pic there and it isn't quite as tidy now sadly. The front and side grilles have now broken up somewhat so I'm on the look out for some new grille sections. Could also do with some tyres too.

    What sort of road speed is it? 18mph area?

    I’ve heard there pretty steady?

    And you'll be glad of it!!
    I spent many years driving a TW15 on spud digging. I absolutely loved the tractor and have very fond memories of that time.
    Except doing the annual 15 mile trek from one block of land back to the farm with a 10ton trailer loaded with spuds.
    Even at 18mph it was like riding a bucking bronco. The only way to control the bounce was to keep letting the throttle off when it becomes unbearable and then power up again for 2 minutes of relaxation.

    Ideal for dragging a low loader with 7000 and 5000 on to shows. :cautious::LOL:

    You could always put the 7000 pulling the lowloader:whistle:, and leave the TW to do what it does best. And that's growling and filling the atmosphere with black smoke up front of a set of heavy parmiter discs!(y)
    They were never built for roadwork.
