    Got a phonecall last night "THIS TRACTOR IS GOING MAD & IT WON'T SLOW DOWN!, come & have a look" I was in the next field so went over imagining all sorts, soon as I got in noticed no resistance on the pedal, spring must be broke so not so bad in the end, was able to keep going to get the job done.

    Came up with a bodge this morning...

    Fully adjustable for sensitivity & spring strength....by moving hose clip or tying knots in bungee cord :LOL::rolleyes: works quite well too.

    Where is this raft race? I'm guessing it's worth watching, and we are on holiday just up the road from minehead

    Been on this farm 12 years and only now got to making this one, you may have a little wait!
    But in all seriousness I will have a go, similar but with a highland? What wording?

    It is a superb bit of work. But before you start, you realise you will have about 500 orders from TFF alone! It will be a full time job.

    Yes a highlander would be great. If too difficult just a generic sheep, as I have both.
    Wording: Fanans
    No rush. Tomorrow afternoon will be fine.

    Only one side broke.
    I rarely drive it, hardly ever used as it doesn't pack much punch.

    Exhaust brake on the left. The other is technicaly a travel pedal, as it's not linked directly to engine revs.
