It seems funny using a forum after years of instant (and instantly forgotten) social media.
As is the polite thing to do I thought a Hello is due with a little intro..
I am not Robin Kent but Rob in Kent if that makes sense.
Always had farm machinery at heart as I worked for an agricultural contractor and farmer back at the end of the 70s. Whilst the fleet was mixed we had two Nuffield 460 tractors. These were usually used on PTO work. So Baling and disc mowing was their forte in the summer and in the winter they were the ones to start on the coldest of days. They got the job of feeding the cattle or rolling oats.

Very fond memories of those days. We did have some blue and red tractors but they were never as charismatic.

I don't have a tractor at the moment as space is tight and sorting a series one landrover and a few old British motorcycles keeps me busy. The nearest thing I have to a tractor restoration is an Allen Scythe.

I am looking forward to engaging in the forum

Best wishes Rob

Enjoyed Newark a lot Jamie. Note to self... Beware of temptation. A lot of really nice kit there. You could get carried away.

Good company and a chatter about Nuffields meant I learned a bit too. 😉😉
Cheers Rob
