New tractor arrives

With just 4 weeks before our first carnival we finally get our hands on our new tractor. After valliant efforts to repair our old Case 1694 the decision was finaly made to scarp it and purchase a new vehicle. If you'd need spares for one of these tractors, please contact us.

After many meeting during which the different merits of vehicle type Lorry/Tractor/Tug and braking systems Air/Oil/Air-Over-Oil were discussed it was finally decided to stick with the tried and trusted agricultural tractor. After much searching a Ford 9700 was found.

Thanks to Gary for driving the tractor back early on Sunday morning, sadly this coincided with the first frost of the year and there was no windscreen in the tractor!

A big Thanks to Ken Boobyer for all his efforts in finding and preparing the tractor in such a short time-frame.

And after just four weeks it looked like this:

Completed Tractor (almost)

Our only worry now is that VOSA will take the decision to ban tractors all together and we'll have to find a lorry!
