Dads ploughmaster at harvest

Postby pbufton » Fri Jan 10, 2014 10:17 pm

Came across a couple of photos from 2009 of dads Ploughmaster 75 and my grandfathers zetor 3545. Thought some might be interested :) I was in the ploughmaster and dad was in the zetor

Its a New Holland Super hayliner 68, had very little use through the years. Picked it up from someone locally a few years back. Currently barn stored, fully intend to use it behind my dexta sometime in the future

How did you get the round bales out of a NH hayliner? :scratchhead:

Ahh the round bales. haha. One of the neighbours came to bale some for himself, they have a Claas or Krone I cant remember which.

Ben, its not the best! haha. The super 68 Grandfather farmed with for all those years before this one was pretty spot on though. rarely missed a bale from what im told :)

Just right for a Dexta I think.

What's wrong with it? :wink:

Theres nothing really wrong with it as far as I can tell, just needs a major service and about 100 acres of hay to bale to get it bedded in again. I don't think its had much use at all over the years, very little wear on it. Oh and the odd *bang* from the rammer gearbox area, but it hasn't developed into anything so we have no idea what it is causing it.

Pat, back then it was very clean. I think we'd just done some touch up work to it for a local show a couple of months before. Its current state is quite sad, but still it full working order (its minus the cab, the fuel tank has split and its due a set of rear tyres!

6-cylinders are very rare. We have a lot of counties, mainly 4-pots them too. I seldom see Roadless tractors for sale. Dont think we have any 95's. I know of a couple of Roadless Dexta's, some Majors and now the 3 75's that are advertised...

Can get you a County 654 or 754 quite cheap though, we have plenty of them.. :-)

Id be fairly interested at that money. Id imagine the cost of importing here would be pretty big?
