  1. Any blokes here bidding on this?

    Tempted but decided to buy a Reliant Robin instead....
  2. Interesting machines those Lawnboys mowers. Look like they were well made unlike the shite they churn out today.
  3. All the way from the USA - Panzer t70

    I love that Panzer and the patina is just right. Will you leave it as it is or restore it? Having bought my Bolens 600 from Ohio there is something special about getting a genuine Yank GT from over the Pond.
  4. Bolens 1476 Mowing Duty

    Cool looking machine.
  5. Fantastic photos and some cool looking vehicles there. I love that large silver truck. I have seen that Morris pickup a few years ago at Gaydon Heritage Centre but then it had a nice patinated burgundy paintjob at the time. I would still take it home though.
  6. Heathersgill rally Carlisle 2018

    A nice line up and looks like a good day too. I like the look of the Motorstandard Gutbrod.
  7. 5 gang mower

    Nice set of gang mowers
  8. Chainsaw Collection Grows

    Cool collection

    Great write up Alan! I did wonder what was behind all that timber and now I know......
  10. Biddenden tractorfest 2018

    Thanks Kev for the prompt reply. It would be good to give the machines a run and a play somewhere out of harm's way. Keep us posted on that as it develops. Thanks
  11. Biddenden tractorfest 2018

    Kev, Will there be an area where we can drive around but not 'work'the area? I know we can drive into the arena but is there a play area so to speak? Thanks
  12. Wee tractor working 2018 new garden

  14. Toro The Sequel

    You can get some good discount with the Halfords Trade Discount card; better than a poke in an eye! I hear Harry bought the other Toro.
  15. Fun in the snow

    and I have not talked about the spelling mistake either...
  16. Fun in the snow

    Good video Joseph and again I see that you are doing all the hard work. What does your father actually do Maybe your dad could get it repainted in the correct colour.... Ewan, I am glad your architectural skills are being put to good use.
  17. Toro The Sequel

    Looks fantastic Chris Are you keeping them both?
  18. Beast from the East 2

    Well the Met Office got it right again regarding the heavy snow here in Devon. The A380 near Exeter is renown for it snow problems due to the steep hills called Telegraph Hill on the A380 and Haldon Hill on the A38. The snow here is around 12" deep in places and the main roads here are driveable but it getting access to those roads that is the problem. Here a few photos of the snow where we live. I am hoping it will disappears by tomorrow.....
  19. Input on News Needed

    A few weeks ago I mentioned that there was no real issues with Russia.... However, I was talking to a friend of mine back in Early February who son is in the Army and he said there appears to be a lot of Russian activities that is requiring monitoring. What those activities are, my friend didn't know. On top of that, we recently have had an attempted murder of a former Russian spy in Salisbury, a sleepy Wiltshire city and another suspicious death of another Russian businessman last week in London. What's happening, I just don't know but I think there is an attempt to divide Europe by targeting 'Billy No Mates UK' due to the forthcoming Brexit negotiations and thus weakening the EU. it is a relief that the some of the UN, namely, the USA, Germany and France are standing firm with the UK alongside Poland. We know that the Russian's economy is not good so this diplomatic incident may be a deflection by Putin to flex his muscles on the international stage.
  20. R.I.P. Roger Bannister

    Yes a gentleman from that era.
  21. Busy day with our 1972 Bolens 1054

    Good video Joseph of the 1054 in action.
  22. That's a very tidy job yet again Alain.
  23. McDonalds in the UK Getting Cheesy

    Got to say Fish and chips with mushy peas every time for me. Though I prefer Burger King over McDonalds when I do have a burger which is not often I am afraid due to the queuing. I see KFC UK got supply problems at the moment as over half of their restaurants are temporarily closed....
  24. Our Terrier

    It amazes me how owners can be so fickle with their pets such as returning a dog to the seller as it barked too much.... Absolutely crazy. Anyway, it gone to a good home now.
  25. Put the Bolens to work today

    I had a couple of jobs today at a customer's garden and I thought I would give the 600 a brief workout especially since the head gasket and exhaust been replaced by my mate Chris a few days ago. It fired up first time this morning and was a lot quieter than of late. There was a dead Acer (Japanese maple) that needed to be removed. I pruned the branches off and mattacked the roots around the tree. I slipped on a rope around the tree and secured it to the hitch. The Bolens pulled it easily in first gear and took two attempts. Considering that it is a 6hp Bolens without diff lock I was pleased with what it could do.
