    Silage nostalgia

    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    It could be fun to have one of these Old Chopper days.
    I had a bash last year, but I was on my own.

    They've also got a 2405 (just in case the 23 breaks down) and a couple of TW's. I'll see if I can take a few pics of them at their own silage this year.

    That's a beauty, Jim. You'd have been chuffed owning that back in 1975 and towing it with a Roadless or County

    In 1975 Jim was only about 7 years old.

    Yup, I know, but I was using "you" in a loose way, not directed personally at Jim

    I remember the first time I saw a 719 working around here. We all thought it was a monster of a machine and the driver thought he was the dog's biscuits

    An 890 would be of that era, being an 892 I think it is more modern. 1980 ish. It would maybe have a metal detector by then.




    You can still get them in the States but they look a lot more updated. Maybe even a mill in there now.

    This was a good do, they certainly know how to have fun abroad!
    The things that come to those who wait, are things left by those who got there first!
