It was nice to see all the moterhomes and other vehicles etc a good way away from the display area, much better than displaying machines etc right in front of vans, awnings etc which detracts from the display, it then tends to look like an extention of the camping area.

have had a great day and this years special is a vast collection of HART PARR tractors . last year there was 100 TITANS on display. i can say without hesitation that this show is one to watch. there was this machine there which had two large tillers on the rear of it,i am sure that it would give a Howard Super Gem a run for its money.from the driving position it had  many levers which would have made a signal box look like a prototype.

A Fowler Gyrotiller, what a machine. I was lucky enough to be at GDSF the year they had one in the working area and saw it working.

I was at that GSDF as well, Charlie! I notice that the Merry Tiller owner has a sawbench and truck setup just like in the brochure, looks like he's got one on a Webb mower as well. I've never seen the sawbench....
Good batch of pics, thanks Simar Kid....

Too true , Penfold and Rice were one of the biggest Gyrotilling contractors in the country , my father recalls them working locally.
From memory two models were built , the smaller version having Fowlers own engine , the larger powered by a MAN engine.

Stapehill Abbey, Wimborne, Dorset used to have a Fowler Gyrotiller with an engine from a German U boat in it.

what we were trying to work out was how they moved it about.

They were made in Leeds and ended up in Lincoln...  We can only assume they were in several bits and transported via train and then assembled, but that still leaves a bit of road work...

anyone know?

Well, what can I say now...
 
Newby Hall, has, for a few years now been the talk of many of my friends & colleagues in my area initially on the Agri side of things..I am so so glad I went..not least to have had the pleasure of meeting John SIMAR Kid, Mark, Brian...........god I hate remembering names...and all those that I spoke to. And to those that 'collared' me to chat as well.
 
The Horti section was impressive, I felt that it had a well positioned place too!! I even saw a friend that lives 6 miles from me, not knowing he was attending. I intend to get my 'van' up there next year if possible, I thoroughly recommend it to anyone that can get to it..definately!!!
 
Beautiful location, easy road access, great people and very good quality exhibits etc on both Horti & Agri sections
 
Go There..Or Be Square!
 
Thanks to all I met, fantastic!
