Boughton Winch 205

Hallo,
over here in Germany we hardly find a Boughton winch.
Now I was offerd a Modell 205.
Does anyone know, what time they were build?
It is a two Speed Version, what would be the pulling potential?

Kind regards
Matthias

Re: Can You Still Get The GMC Axle They Used On Roadless Tra

Hallo,
your problem is not the axle, your problem will be the gearbox .
A reconditioned unit should have both.

What would be a good Price for a Roadless Major?

Two or three times a year I seee an offer here in Germany and the surounding countries.

Re: gearbox oil - level

The larger rear bearing is pretty expensiv, I think it was round about 150€ , but I am not sure.
Look for a replacement rea rend. In Belgium it should be no Problem to find them.

Hallo Matthias,
you are right, it looks like some rollers are missing in the bearing. I have the same with one of my Majors sitting in the barn for almost two years. :oops:

Looks more like a County X000-4 to me.

Can you post some pictures of the lefthand gearbox and rearaxle?

Hallo, the difference in total size is about 7 cm or 3 ". When you divide it by two the difference in hight of the rear tractor is 1.5" or 3,5 cm. I don´t think that will be visual. You can try the differenc by parking your tractor on a 1,5 " board. Here http://www.en.working-tyres.eu/ you can check...

Re: Advice on buying new battery

My Majors all start real easy, so I allways use old batteries I take out of my working tractors.
Even the 590 E 6 Zylinder has no problem starting with an older battery. Replacement batteries for the working fleet are allways the "Optima Red Top" like Jan mentioned.
