Recently I was browsing Utube videos on tractors and I came across one that I had never heard of-Nexat.To say I was amazed is an understatement. Below for comparison of changes inthe last 100 years is a picture of an International tractor from 1920 similar to mine,which at the time was cutting edge technology.

This idea has been around for many years, at a guess since the 60's companies big and small have tried
John Shearer had a go and made a gantry tractor, guessing in the 80's

The first of these ran on little raised beds and farmed in between

Not sure what the story was with John Shearer attempt, I think it was a joint venture with a university
