Found a fordson county when I tracked down the owner he told me he had another one I thought that’s handy one to get going and one for parts
Went and looked at the second one and it’s a super 6 the first one is a super 4 oh well that means two to get going
The super 6 is home hadn’t gone for at least 15 years parked up the scrub cracked four injectors towed it about and got oil pressure nipped up the injectors towed ten feet and had smoke

Don't laugh about sheds.

Just purchased 6 acres with a nice house and a 12x18 shed.

First comment from Helen, "that's mine, You can build your own shed"

But there is a rider, my shed can't be bigger than her's or I'll buy too many toys!

Helen trains her Border Collies in obedience trials and bagged the shed for that purpose. Of course now it needs insulating and air-conditioning so it can be used year round without stress. My shed? suffer you old bastard.

Cobba no need to be jealous think of how many wheels that need new rubber and hydraulic hoses that look a bit sus

Zuffen I would have said of course you can have the shed it’s not even half big enough for the toys I have and the toys I want

tell her insulation is worth 3o feet of extra width and air conditioning an extra 40 feet of depth!
then to make it more cost effective you go up to the next standard size!

A set of tyres and afew hydraulic lines are nothing compared to what it is. They certainly are a very desirable tractor, both the 4 and the 6.

I’m not complaining in the restoration/rebuilding game tyres hoses ect are the least of your problems if you can score something that’s all there
The six has a dodgy bonnet and no grill panels but that’s all that is missing
The four is pretty well all there but all the tin work is fairly cancerous not to concerned so long as the transfer cases and bevel drives on the front are ok most of the rest is basically fordson and there is still a fair few of them around to scrounge parts off

Saw my first County in '75 at a place my cousin was managing near Mia Mia; until then I'd only ever steered a Dexta diesel on my infrequent trips to Noorat. Wow - 4x4 with big equal sized tyres. Wow.
And round bales. Round bales? What? Need something big like a County to carry 'em about, but just push 'em downhill to feed out. Wow. Luxury.
No need to leave tractor unpiloted whilst jump on trailer and hand feed out little squares.

Hayseed your right about them being bulletproof I always recon you walk past a fordson and kick the front wheel and they start but I wasn’t game with this one in case my foot went through the tyre
