  7. Belt-up

    Decided to give the 800 a little TLC, during it's tour of duty at johns towing a heavy trailer the drive belt started to slip. i had a rummage in the shed and found a few spare belts and found one a tad shorter so went about fitting it, once stripped down i found the drive pulley loose and one hub . All tight and belt fitted also changed the oil in the tranny. all good to go to Kingsfold at the weekend.

  18. Townings harvest Fair

    Just spent the weekend at Townings Farm. It's more a club working weekend with a 2 hour tractor run Saturday night with a BBQ when we got back. I took the Raider 12 and the 800 with the disc's, plough and my tiller. Got plenty of seat time and very happy with the tiller. Bit disappointing with the amount of public attending but we all had a great time and the rock band played most of the day and I even had a ride in a model T ford. heres a few photos for your enjoyment

  25. 7-1252 tiller

    Drive belt arrived this morning so I finished off the idler and fitted the belt. Started the engine and engaged the pto and everything seems to work ok, will give it a good test at Townings over the weekend but so far looking good. Thanks to Bearingboys for their help in supplying the belt, if it helps anyone with a tiller the belt is 1/2" x 140" A138 V 140391 and cost £17.60 with post and vat ( and its a Dunlop belt ).
