One shed will take four Presidents, but I purposely want to keep it to three with room to work around.
Different in that it's a later standard President but also has rear hydraulics too.

Let's hope it's not as cold as last winter this year...

Mmmm, yes John, that had crossed my mind.

However, President Number 1 ( to me ) had it's debut and so did the Orchard one, for me, at our local show last weekend, Tern Valley at Newport...
Get This, I met the tractors original owner, or son of!!
It get's better... he has the original photo's that were taken by Bob Gray, Brockhouse Engineerings salesman, at the farm!! Obviously black & white.
We are meeting at Onslow Park this weekend with a view to acquiring copies..Made My Absolute Year that has.
Here it is now...

What a great job, and it looks like you could get away with the rear tyres on the other one!

That is the great thing about showing our machinery; you never know who you will meet. I met the son of Mr Shickle, the designer of the Monro Tiller some years ago, even sold him a Monro Tiller afterwards.

I've took my van up to Onslow Park Steam Show today, and immediately apon setting up, a kind lady & gentleman approached me about Presidents ( I must be getting famous??) and are providing me with a template for a felt 'washer' I need for the rear axles on Presidents.
Great this is!! and I shall always return a favour..I doubt I'd be lucky enough to supply a President to a Mr.Brockhouse though.. that would be nice!!

If Bob Gray took photographs of your President on the owners farm they may well have appeared in President advertising in the Farming Press under the series Bob Gray Interviews President Tractor Users.

The actual photographs taken were not actually used unfortunately... but yes, there must be some others taken at the time Joe.
