Seen an article in today farmers machinery journal' said farmer won use of tractor for 3 months' tractor is case active 8
Out of interest any on

here ever won tractor outright in competition or any other kit?
Mmmm....

Lending a demo tractor out for a few quiet months, doubtless with the requirement that FMJ can take lots of piccies and publish the tale, seems a prize worth more to the manufacturer and magazine than it does to the supposed winner.

I won 6 months use of New Holland/Trimble autosteer.
Only have a TM so it was fitted with the latest electric steering motor, with a big Ipad type screen. Was a free draw at local shows, completely forgot I'd entered when he phoned up.

My seed drilling has never been so good!!
The whole setup is very impressive.

A bloke on my college course won the Fastrac from Farmers Weekly in 1999. Can't remember what model but the tractor was said to be worth £70,000 then!!!

Would you keep it? Big discount on it now it’s second hand ;)
 
It'll be very interesting to see how he makes out with that Kirovets once it goes to work. See plenty of them all over youtube, seem to be able to take plenty of use and abuse in Russia.
Apparently he quite likes it...

Yes but have you ever driven one?. The old K700 model weighs about 17 tons and has just enough power to drag itself along. Was a great clumsy awkward thing. Saw plenty in Ukraine pulling chain harrows that could have been handled by a MF 135. My agronomist often commented that the Russian kit was designed to create compaction and destroy soil moisture.

I love the way that at this moment in the video he says 'There is plenty of work for this type of horsepower' and the video has been edited so that at precise moment a horse and cart appear on the horizon.....a little Irish joke perhaps!

They must have sorted the emission control on them now.


I didn’t see any modern tractors pulling out beyond the track. 😄
