looks like you were having fun. I was wondering if you knew there was a wrench stuck to the track of your machine, in the last photo?

Welcome to the forum. Yes Bristol crawlers are within our clubs range of machinery, in fact 2 of members ran the Bristol register until a few years ago. Some great photo's, thanks.

ok, i see it now. I thought the other stuff there was roots wrapped around the track with a wrench caught up. Very clever idea. Probally not like there are parts just lying about for it.

   Had a bit of bother with a track near the end, a section broke that holds the rubbers in and let the track come apart. Tracks are getting a bit thin in places now but managed to get hold of some track parts the other day so should keep me going for a bit longer ! I was determined to finish so lashed it together with some rope and a spanner and it held on to the end. Seemed to amuse the judge quite a bit but don't think he gave any extra points for effort ! Still a very enjoyable day !

We used to run the Bristol 10 Tractor Register.   If you google 'Bristol 10 Tractor Register' you will come up with the people who are running it now - Jeff and Kim Steed - membership is free and he does have some parts that he is able to supply.
