Hesket New Market Agricultural Show.

Recommended Posts

   Had a good day and the weather was kind. Mainly an agricultural show as the title says, but a lot going on. Cattle, sheep, horses, craft, children's competitions and a round of champion Cumberland wrestling. Plus stalls etc. Something for everyone, but it would have been nice to see more vintage entries.

 

   First, to put you in the mood, some shots of the site.

A couple of horse draw pieces of equipment. The chaps who own these, also have quite a large collection of horse draw agricultural equipment.

This crawler created quite a lot of interest. Fergie engine mated to an American crawler, (Jonathan knows the make) done by some company in Perthshire.

Good photos. Nice lineup of Ransomes, not a common sight to see two ITW machines.

As for the crawler conversion, that's the running gear and frame from a Cletrac HG, it would have originally had a Hercules petrol engine. The Fergie engine would be a good mate size wise for the Cleatrac.
