Massey Ferguson 1200 Lime Spreader.

A conversion done by a good friend of mine in the 80’s in Lincolnshire, for a local contractor. It was later sold and went somewhere in Yorkshire. According to DVLA, the tractors reg’ no’ NFU 422M is currently taxed, and due again in August this year.
It has probably been converted back to a tractor, and possibly with a collector now, and we were wondering if anyone recognised the number ?
We‘re not after getting it back or anything, we were just surprised it still gets taxed after all these years, and maybe the current owner would be interested in the pictures of it.
There was a old on at farm sale not far from here a few weeks ago. Hadn't been used for a long time probs needed a new belt and the hopper sides welding up, it still made a 1000 pounds

Are those Atkinson lime spreader accurate enough for spreading fibrophos?
I spread enough with one pulled by a 290, it had to be clean though else you couldn't shut it down enough, had to tip it in a yard not a field.
I covered over 200 acres one Sunday after I had been on the p1ss Saturday night, finished with the lights on right up the top of cothelstone hill, good day though as I was paid by the acre.
