If they are lent out to anyone that is even likely to take them on a public road, yes, of course. They also and obviously have to be insured. Not third party fire and theft either, but fully comprehensive for any driver.
I can't think any if the dealers round here have sent us any tractors that have been registered on demo unless they were used or ex hire fleet


Really? All demo tractors round here come registered, and we have to insure them while they’re here.
Yeah the farm would insure it whilst we were using it but yeah they generally won't register them until sold as some could hang around for a long time before being sold

Ours had the Duncan cab. Traded it 4 years ago against the manitou. Probably should have stuck it in the back of the shed. We’d owned it since new in 1990.
Were hoping to buy another tractor this summer.
Aiming to keep our 390t as well. It will be a useful pension and if anything happens to me the Mrs can sell it and raise a respectable amount of money to pay off any bills and bring borrowings down quickly
If I trade it in I’ll end up spending the money on something!
