    Most unusual!

    A one-lung Landini pulling a 2 point linkage plow?

    Never seen anything like it

    Other interesting one-lungers as well, presumably a field day.

    What do you make of the plough with the hydraulic cylinder from the lower links to the plough top link? I note the tractor had a top link connection. Not only that, I'm surprised that single cylinders were still thought viable when 3 point linkage was clearly in use.

    Loved the sound of those old girls - pure torque- did anyone notice where this was happening (I didn't)?

    Great to see Thanks for sending in
    A lot of N Germany S/Holstein was ploughed with those big deep single furrow ploughs
    Especially on the State Owned Farms

    A lot of the ploughs are now setup on plinths so as those allowed in can see how they broke up the land

    I did send on that link to the Caravaggi family, I found it fascinating.
    What the film did show was just how innovative the Italians have been.They are very resourceful engineers, we have found that if over the thirty years we have dealt with them, they will tackle anything we ask. They will make a machine, if it does not work, just tow it to the scrap heap,and start agin.
    Thanks for that thread!
