Could have done with one on Weds..... Was working down your way, out of Ferryside.... The slipway in front of the (st.Johns?) lifeboat is deep in soft sand nearly got the dingy and Jeep stuck.... that could have been embarrasing! Oh and the confluence just off Pendine range markers was 'interesting'......was some serious stuff building out there

In other news, Stu is poss heading down our way to collect the SR6 he's bought in a few weeks..... if i'm around /home may head out for a beer.....fancy a 60 mile detour on way home from work?

AS a small farmer we have a david browne tractor small 880 and MF 135. A good tractor but a bitch to start in the winter. The Massey is an easier tractor to start during the cold winter months. It is hard to keep breaks on a Massey though and they tend not to be quite as good as working in soft ground conditions as they have lower ground clearance.

Ferryside was the waterski Mecca on windy days. Could always find a bit of calm water somewhere up the Towy - the S-bends just South of Carmarthen were/are great fun (as long as nobody was coming in the opposite direction ) Mad tides only give 1.5 hours each side of HW, so had to get out, ski/kneeboard and back to the beach/slipway without hanging around. There'd often be a seal or 2 popping their heads up to see what all the fuss was about - gave a few novice kneeboarders a bit of a shock
We knew a guy who was a member of the local club, so he'd arrange a tractor launch & recovery for us, which was great.

Let me know when the wave is due - would be cool to meet up for a shant or 2.

I have two hayter toppers here both need alot of work or there's about 6 ransomes mowers too if you want to mow with cylinders. 4 are pro driven and 2 have kubota diesel engines like the council use.

I've also got to clear a few other bits like a mini digger, trencher and lots of small tractor add on's like a fork lift , potato plough, harrow, spike, front loader, weights, yard scraper and about 6 large trailers.

On top of this I need to clear a three phase engineering workshop!

Could do a swap for rib related stuff

Taken a while, but I've found a little belter of a twactor.......

A (McCormick) International 434 (harvester - 43HP)...... 1970, recent tyres all round, no visible fluid leaks excellent tinwork, complete with a loader and rollover bar

All original /unrestored and in cracking working condition..... Recent fluids and heater plugs (they can be a PITA to get going on a cold morning, but then so can I)

Having it dropped off in a few weeks time, just in time for a spring tractor rally

Will post up some Tractor Porn when she arrives.....

One of these..... http://pictures.dealer.com/w/westken...20fa77a04x.jpg
