Modern day David Brown 780

Which new tractor gives a driving experience, close to a David Brown 780?

I'm nostalgic for my youth, traveling the farm with my DB 780 & Grays delux tipping 5 foot transport box, picking up dead sheep, carrying walling toppers & milk churns to top up baths used as troughs.

Get a really tidy 780. Much cheaper and more reliable than a new tractor. No computer errors!

I have only had experience with 2 David Browns

one, on a farm in England, was some shitty old thing I could hardly get in & out of because of gear levers n stuff, that had a heavy hedge trimmer on the back of it that was too big for it. Fuching things was a death trap

the other one, was owned by an uncle of mine & was basically used to run a large PTO auger at his silo complex. I think he only bought it because it also had “Case” written on the bonnet . . .

neither of these tractors have ever created ANY desire to ever drive another one

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
