Wow!
What an extremely great series of pictures!! Thank you for sharing!
Quite some County's over there. I really like the 4000-4 in the second series!
Is the County "longnose" an 1474 or an 1884?

The FW is a league of its own...what an beast!

Great video Pascal! Now here is the plan, I will win the Euro lottery this month, go to Australia, buy one of these and an 8401 and have them both on Emiel's stand at Meddo! :clap:

Should not be too much trouble to drive the FW back to the boat with the 8401, Rover and Dotty on the back on two trailers! :buddies: Could be a problem getting on the boat though.

Barry says there are two more 8401s in The Netherlands, they have been brought over for tractor pulling. What a waste of a beautiful tractor. :cry:

Hi Brian,

That sounds like a great plan! :beer: Of course I will escort you from the boat to Meddo! 8)

There are two 8401's over here indeed.
One is owned by a famous Dutch tractor exporter Van Dijk in Deurne. I have heard the tractor is in the shed for years now.
This is an old (2002) picture: http://www.tractorfan.nl/picture/705865/
Not sure though if the tractor is original...probably not. :scratchhead:

This is the other one: http://www.tractorfan.nl/picture/840207/
It's imported by a enthusiast in the Southern part of The Netherlands. I don't know him (yet :D ).


Hi Brockwood,

I believe he's a hero! :clap: What a great collection he has!
Best regards,
Pascal

Hi Brian,

Today I met the owner of this 8401 http://www.tractorfan.nl/picture/840207/
He is an incredible nice guy and a true Ford enthousiastic.

He even gave me the chance to sit in the cab and enjoy the view on the hood.
I now totally understand your love for these tractors, Brian.

He has the tractor for his hobby and does NOT use it for tractor pulling. :beer:
Best regards,
Pascal
