d ont know about concourse john i always wanted one of these from the late eighties when i got in to restoration but got my first colwood since then the collection s got bigger and bigger and then just recently aquired this one from wrigley oc was a bit of a pain swapping bits and pieces as had a car ignition set up on it but i do like to make sure whatever i do runs first and gearbox functions ok then i try and get my machines not over the top but workable i admit does usually cost more in paint but then its nice to get it back as near to original as poss   and i think i would struggle to get them looking as good as yours john       would love to see one of yours in the flesh one day

Perhaps you could suggest to SWMBO that you fancy a holiday Down South next year, about July time ???

Yes, it looks great, Planet or Jalo tines will fit. The idea was that you bought the Anzani without tines, then used the ones from your redundant push hoe.....

I just got one at Yesterdays Farming, came with two ploughs and a pair of discs. One tyre is shot but the tyre specialist at the show said they are still available!

Mine has now been re-homed to a person who's been after on for years, and I got a pair of tyres for it easily, they are 2x8, also 12x2, as used on kids bikes.


Now I sort of wish they fitted 300x6 and 300x8's to kids toy tractors!

My dad has one of these which he was given many years ago. It took him ages to find a pair of Ag tyres to go on it. He eventually found a pair on some rims which look like dual rims to go on the same machine - now he's looking for another pair! From memory he has a plough, some cultivators and a hoe to go with  it.
