And I thought my old Bomford 580 Bushwacker was an animal!
The 18' reach needed 30psi in the n/s/r tyre just to keep the tractor level. It had a second 'elbow' joint to allow the far side of the hedge to be done (never seen another quite like it), and was so heavy even with a full set of nose weights, front wheel weights, extra fuel and tool boxes carried on the front, the slightest amount of frivolity with the clutch would have it sitting on it's oil tank, working at full reach on an uphill run could often leave you perched on one wheel. I ran this tractor every day for 3 years and the only 'faliures' were one clutch and a blown core plug.
Amazes me that so many modern hedging combos have 120+hp 4wd tractors with almost minimal sized trimmers on them - how did we cope 30 years ago?
