    Default 230 Vintage tractors up for auction - one handy for a "good stuck



    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-auction.html

    One farmer owner! Collector set to rake in up to 2m after putting his collection of 230 vintage tractors up for auction

    • Paul Rackham has spent 25 years assembling the collection of tractors
    • 79-year-old farmer's haul spans from 1916 through to the 1970s
    • It includes the only surviving example of a Holt 75 dating back to WWI
    • Sale being held at pensioner's farm in Norfolk later this month


    If you really get stuck, this is the unit to pull you out (or apart). It might take a bit for it to get to you, but the job will be a simple one for it.

    Yeah, that is a cool tractor. The winch appears to be driven directly off the tracks? I guess you can't winch anything with the tracks in motion though.

    I'd think the winch would operate independently of the track. There's no fairlead on it (possibly missing??) so a straight line pull is in order.
