Default Unusual Open Day (Engines, tractors and plant machinery)

Today we attended a local open day and got to see all manner of classic plant machinery as well as some tractors and a few engines. It was an excellent, if not cold day.

Pics from the event can be found at

Some interesting kit there - what is that thing that looks like an RB crawler mounted on a truck chassis?

It's nice to see the machines being used instead of cold, static exhibits.

I like the "little & large" photo.

That's a very impressive place. Some big "boys toys" there. I've always hankered for an Alvis, that Stalwart would just fit the bill!!!

A long time since I last saw a Vickers Vigor, Shands at Rowsley had some of those but they had 'issues' I believe and were not popular.

The County crawler (or possibly Roadless) looks like it has enormous potential, at least because it looks like its only got the Ford bits missing!

Great Pics,

Paul.

Think the lister d type stove is very good. Looks like it has a pie warmer too.

According to the current owner he made it himself, based in a village east of Hull. So not the same stove you are thinking of Charles.
