HTN 146 - Living preservation of vintage tractors

19th October 2006

The more we analyse how we can save money by using our heritage equipment, the more interesting it becomes. Maintenance of lawns and gardens is important to us and one of the things that we have done over the years is to spike our lawns in springtime. In fact, we had a special machine built.

However, the Estate's department were consistently using tractors which were far too powerful for the job and we have now deployed this beautiful little 1942 Farmall Cub which does the job immaculately.

Fully restored by Jannie du Toit in the Cape for the Villiersdorp Show, it has an electric start, is totally reliable, and is more than comfortable with this particular job. It does the tractor good as well.
