The inboard winch was also available on the MG6 crawler used considerably in timber extraction.

Re: Ransomes 80th Anniversary Tractor World

A number of us that exhibited at Malvern are going to put together a similar display for the end of the anniversary year at the Tractor World Autumn Show to be held at Newbury October 8th & 9th. If you have a ransomes MG machine then do try to bring it along.

Re: Ransomes ITW Shunter

The yellow machine behind it is a Ransomes Sand Skimming Tractor I am in the process of rebuilding. They were used for removing a layer of contaminated sand from the surface of water treatment filter beds.Based on an extended MG6 chassis. I am still collecting missing parts.

Re: Ransomes ITW Shunter

A beautiful replica of the barge tractor built by 20 year old Rhys Boni from Jedburgh, the detail is amazing.

Re: Ransomes ITW Shunter

This one off ITW was sold to London Docks for towing barges. We think the steering wheel was fitted to apply gradual pressure to the steering brakes as a means of reducing the risk of side snatching which could have a very wet ending. http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/62905_3I95GM...
