New tractor arrives

E-mail Print PDF

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.

New Ford

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!

E-mail Print PDF

After all the dissapointment with the tractor last year we arrived in Bridgwater in good shape, although it was a shame a little more of the paint didn't have time dry.A big thanks to Gary and the team for getting the cart to Parkway in good time, we even had time to sit down and have a cuppa before the parade!The cart looked magnificant as we set of and a 3rd in class was a well deserved result.

Thanks to "Al Crook" for this YouTube video.

Early progress

E-mail Print PDF

Can you guess what it is yet?In an attempt to learn from last years' dissapointments, this year the club was intent on making an early start to the build and maintaining the momentum through-out the year. Gary said he was fed-up with switching the lights on for the first-time whilst parked up in Parkway prior to our first procession and many of the members were so exhausted after the last few days of building that they had very little left for the procession.
