Well Guys, finally went down to near Cognac (Nersac in fact) with NoÃ«lles CitoÃ«n Berlingo and a smal trailer to collect the plough this weekend having paid for the beast long time ago, found a great crowd of guys in a little village, all of whom seem to be tractor fans.
Getting it on the trailer took a little while, had to take it partly to pieces, narrow the wheel-width down and have 5 men good and strong to lift it onto the trailer. Against Cub equipment it is "what is known in the trade as HEAVY"
It is in very good condition and fortunately the mouldboard extensions are not
, it had recently done some work and the "weld" was some chalky earth lodged up there.
It is what's known in France as a semi-mounted plough as, not having a rear land-wheel it had a system of suspension on the towbar to lift the backend out of the ground.
Will post a good pic when it is on the ground again and put together, Baby will enjoy pulling it around pretending he is strong enough to drop it into the ground! We'll see
Can't wait to get it behind a tractor and see what it will do.
