Latest Volvo Hook-Loader

February 24, 2012

Another Volvo hook-loader has just been completed. This has been a very expensive rebuild and we will certainly have to work hard at finding a customer prepared to pay the extra for an above average condition machine.Volvo Hook-Loader

The International TD-24 Has Arrived

February 23, 2012

The beast is here!

International TD-24

This International TD-24 has come all the way from Sauk Centre, MN, USA. It was bought unseen (except photos) and the condition is not quite as good as was described by the seller. However, with a little bit of ‘elbow-grease’ we will soon have it ship-shape.

TD-24 Restoration

The engine is now starting and running well. We are removing the heavy front-end, the bulldozer hydraulic pump and returning it to agricultural spec.

TD-24 Sprocket

 We have major concerns with one of the tracks and are trying to find some new pins, bushes and a sprocket – maybe we will have to have some made, as most International parts are now obsolete. Anybody with parts or information leading to the purchase of parts will be most gratefully received.

TD-24 Paint work

The tractor will eventually have to be shot-blasted and repainted. Not much trouble was taken by a previous owner to prepare and paint, as the picture shows.

 

Keep looking for updates as we progress with the restoration – should be a very nice tractor when finished.

Fame at Last!

We went to a ‘working day’ at Farnsfield in aid of the Air Ambulance charity on the 29th and 30th December and took our latest edition to the collection – the newly imported International TD14a and Ransomes Hexatrac plough.

Featured Machine: I-H Farmall F20 yr 1936

July 21, 2010

We have the usual array of Articulated Dumpers and Excavators available, but we thought we’d feature a more unusual machine after wetting everyone’s appetite with our International BTD20 Project.

1936 I-H Farmall

This 1936 I-H Farmall F20 may be 74 years old, but is in very nice condition, ideal condition to either re-paint or even keep it in time weathered condition (Rust!) Interestingly the correct colour for a 1936 tractor is grey not red! Some tractors were later painted red.

International BTD20 Crawler Restoration – Week 17

June 16, 2010

The project is all but finished. These images are “out in the sun” for the first time after the restoration.

However, next week there will be more images of the tractor washed and polished.  At the moment the paint is not quite hard enough.

We are very pleased with the outcome and would like to thank everyone involved. They are:  Eamon Pell for assistance with the transmission work, Steve Deere for welding and general fiddly bits,  Andy Baines general involvement in re-assembly, Les Clark for electrical and some of the paint-work and JB Blasting and Painting of Long Bennington for their high quality work.
