View attachment 867645View attachment 867645The 181 is 5” shorter than a 167 so I would think firmness would be an issue. They also used to do a much shorter version of the 69BK, 219Bk for RND bodies. Typical Ransomes really in trying to give everybody a variation to suit local conditions.
Looks like the 175 is fairly specific to the MG trailer plough

Thanks for that Dave, they were a great company in their day
I wonder if we will ever see their like again now that we are out of the EU and what with the virus and the realization by the men in suits that all our manufacturing was let go to the dogs, would be great to see some companies making agricultural kit again here

Sadly we won't see mass manufacturing again as the country is to well off,
The welfare state is geared to paying to much for it to be worth working,
And the cost and health and safety, along with the union's will make it unworkable

Really sad but true. We seem to have arrived at a state where if people don’t want to work they don’t have to. Health and safety now run riot and become an industry on its own with people ripping businesses off accordingly - as you so rightly say, all adding to the cost.
Hopefully things will turn as European manufacturers no longer have us to prop them up.
The effects of this virus are here for a long long time. Hopefully the tide will turn more in the favour of home produced food and machinery. Now would be a great time to start and ban imports - then perhaps forget to remove the ban.
Keep safe and well everybody.

Strange today, that Ransomes offered solutions by region. Yorkshire, Scotland, Irish, Kent, Holland, Italy, South Africa, etc., when ground changes from day to day or even within a plot? The permutations of share and body, boggle.
