Re: county 1887 demo tractor
Did this tractor [W regd. with 6 f rev Dowdeswell] have a
bit of trouble with the draft control? Only reason I ask is
because after watching my bit of video it seems the plough
kept riding out of the ground.

Re: county 1887 demo tractor
This 1887 tractor was the one with te 6-furrow Dowdswell
plough. When this tractor was ploughing upwards hillside
with full trotle the engine had a irrigular "walk".

The draft problems you noticed where probably caused by the
amount of stones in the soil !

Re: county 1887 demo tractor
The driver/owner of this 1884 tractor actually gave me ago
with it.
The problem was that the plough depth wheel had no prop in
it and it was very difficult or almost impossible to
control.
