You've probably already said this, but what's it's top speed on the road?

It looks like a SP lime spreader, not a lorry with a lime spreader stuck on back. Which is important for farmers perceptions. Think the bonnet out front helps that.
 
It’s limited to 65 kph, falls into the category for fast tractors like a Fastrac or Unimog. Importantly, it has the positive link steering system and superb brakes, commercial all round.

I don’t travel at that speed, there’s no need to at all, 50kph is plenty. The trailer is well equipped for brakes too, again commercial all round air brakes. It is without a doubt the safest machine I’ve ever driven on the roads in that respect.

They’re in a storage shed at Carlisle airport, there’s a few of them. They tow big generators about, did I read on hear somewhere about a sale of jcb gear from electric company? Guess it’ll be the 4cx’s and loading shovels in the pictures?

More of the same, yes. It's a strategic store for nuclear emergency response equipment. Run by Stobart on behalf of EDF energy.
