The international

Post by tractoral » Sat Sep 03, 2011 8:58 pm

Hello all

Today i yet again parted with my hard earned money ( i work on a horse drawn barge tourist attraction and can walk up to 20 miles a day and times that buy 14 days straight which i did once,its alot of miles!!!)

I am now the proud owner of an International B275 all be it needing a few parts and i shall get stuck in as soon as i finish the ferguson continental.

Whilest at the chaps farm he also had an international 414 which again was it a resonable condition and i had the choice between the two but with the 414 having no wheels kind of made life difficult.

The 414 also had a special "rare" fitment which i have never seen before which was a single pto with a two speed leaver which you could use to change speed.Anybody got any info??

Whilst there,there also was a very sorry looking 434 basically a carcus and when asked the chap said he had good intentions to restore them which he hadnt done.

Although when i was looking at the tractors my dad spoke to his father who showed my dad around the farm when he showed him a ferguson 35,another international 414,a fordson dexta and he also went on to explain he had also bought recently a 4x4 dexta and a roadless ploughmaster very cheap and had been offered £20,000 in cash for it!!!

Anyway if anyone in the forum wants to try and save the 414 or 434 (very brave!!) just let me know,the tractors are in north wales and you will need to be quick because he said he will hang on to them for me for 2 weeks but after that they are coke cans!!

That wouldn't have been you on the Llagollen Horse drawn boat last Wednesday would it? If I'd realised I'd have said Hello.

We had a canalboat on the Llangollen canal for a week. Moored up at Trevor and got the bus to Llangollen then the train, got off at Berwyn on the way back and walked back to Llangollen and Trevor from Horseshoe falls, that's where we passed the horse drawn boat and possibly you.
