We will have a display of about 45 tractors which will be from 1918 to 1984 of all makes and from 20 HP to 335 HP. The tractors will also do a ring parade with a commentary however if you miss this I am sure the owners will be please to talk to you about their tractor history and restoration. We will have a display of Barn engines that were common place on most farms before electricity can to rural areas. The duties they carried out was to drive dynamo’s to make electricity, drive mills to grind cattle and sheep food and pump water for household use and livestock.

Engines were also used for sheep shearing machines. Most engines were petrol in 11/2 to 4HP range then the larger ones were oil engines.

Please feel free to have a chat with the owners, they will tell you how they came across these wonderful pieces of engineering of the past and all about their restoration.

I hope you enjoy the display.
