New Holland 8060

Post #1 by Cx5 » Wed Oct 19, 2016 6:22 pm

Been busy converting slides of some of our previous farm machinery to digital format. Thought they might be worth sharing as its no good leaving in a box for know one to see.
First offering is an 8060 with a huge 13' header off loading some OSR probably Jet Neuf, a single low variety that consistently yielded 30cwts acre and you just scattered it on the field and it grew. We advance 20+ years and still struggle to advance the yield much beyond this figure.
The trailer is a Martin Markham 4 ton with a 6 ton axle (fatter tyres) This was bought along with two others from the factory at Stamford. I remember the yellow paint was still sticky when we first used them. The tractor was a Ford 5600. Rustons supplied the combine, Power Farming of Stamford (John Philips) supplied the trailers and the Tractor came through PM Tractors and sold by Jim Bowles. The location is Butts farm, Glatton, Cambs.
I'll add the date later.

Another rummage in the slide box and a few more New Holland 8060 shots. Probably of interest is the straw spreader and the Griffith Elder Yield per field weighing apparatus on the unloading auger telling us that we weren't gowing 3 tons to the acre yet. And lastly corn carting nirvana. Who could want more than a IH 454 with a Martin Markham 4 tonne trailer.

You were spoilt there.
1981/2 harvests for me involved a 1968 Claas Matador 12' without a cab, paired with a B275 (again no cab) and a 3 ton tank on an early 60's remains of a trailer. Dust? Don't talk to me about dust!

I recall that grain tanks on trailers were quite popular. We went through the ritual of putting the "grain sides" on the trailers before harvest, this on an MF trailer and a home made trailer that you would use for muck cart, rubble, seed corn and fertiliser bags and then press it into service for grain cart after fettling the tailboard with hessian sacking ripped off the roll which was meant for the weld mesh bins that bolted together using ubolts that you filled with a Mayrath auger and so on.........

You've got it, then after harvest you're faced with a mountain of dung that couln't be moved 'cause you couldn't be bothered to take the tank off the trailer, and a diesel Major with a trip bucket loader an dung fork with half the tines missing to load it all with.
