The same machine, from the opposite side. A Trailco T-300 Travelling irrigator hitched up at the back.

Re: MF 168 Multi-Power
No, it is a travelling irrigator.

The hose on the machine is used to supply the water from the hydrants or from aluminium pipes (It is run out in the field & attached to the rear of the machine).

The machine is water driven (via a ram) & winches itself along the field (from one end to the next) till it reaches the anchor tractor.

I have posted a pic of one working (I think it was under irrigating poppies).

The pic shows the irrigator all packed up ready for the next field.

Does it not turn very... very....very fast? Or does it have reduction gearbox?

Re: MF 168 Multi-Power
The hose reel is only used on the pto when winding the hose up. As the hose still has some water in it, the speed is kept to a minimum.

Re: MF 168 Multi-Power
Ok, But If I made that reel i would make it hydraulic driven, then you have 100% speed control.

Re: MF 168 Multi-Power
Why wheel weights on the front when yo have a front end loader?? :-\

Re: MF 168 Multi-Power
This tractor used to be used without the loader but now the loader stays on it all of the time.

I think it may also be specific to models in Australia too Martijn, as I havent seen a 168 / 165 / 175 / 178 without wheel weights operating here :-)

Another one of the same tractor, way back in 1989.

Another, with the 168 on irrigation anchor duty. This time the loader has the bucket attached instead of the forks.
