Somerset Vintage and Classic Tractor Show 2016

1949 Ferguson TE-A20 Half Track

(ink sketch)

I've always hankered after half track tractors and this was my favourite tractor of this years Somerset Vintage and Classic Tractor Show. The simplicity of the rubber tracks and the extra wheel that bolted onto the rear axel optimises what I love about agricultural machinery. The half track arrangement was developed in 1956 for the Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition. This Bombardier flexible half-track conversion, imported from Canada, consists of reinforced rubber belts joined by steel cross-members.  

1963 Fordson Super Major

This hefty Super Major with twin rear wheels caught my eye, it currently resides in Martock Somerset but spent it's working life in the hills of Wales.
