Bob Ball is the host again for this, our fifth look at tractors at work. This year we take a look at the International Harvester marque as they work the land across Cornwall. We also see some in different stages of restoration and some awaiting restoration. Plus a couple of vintage balers and an 8-51 combine. Quite a variety to please any vintage tractor aficionado.
At the Trewen working day we have a variety of International models, but we also go off site to see the International 8-51 combine and other International machinery and tractors. We then see a vintage International binder coupled to a BWD6 tractor harvesting wheat in 2007 before the corn is thrashed vintage style using steam power.
We are then back to the working day where despite the inclement weather the experienced drivers get the sticky land ploughed with remarkable skill.
An extra feature is a look at the collection of International Harvester tractors owned by Jim Cole. Jim has a varied collection and has a special interest in mid-mounted mowers. He has assembled some very rare components to equip several of his smaller tractors with these mid-mounted mowers.
