TVHC, its probably an Ex Freeway Plant Item (Jim Blyth) I used to do work for Jim about 30 years ago, he used to work as a Salesman at Kellands Plant selling MF kit.

Dan its not unusual, just rare in todays world.

That backend is the exact same model that both Graham and myself first learned to operate, sorry drive :rolleyes: kids dont have enough experience after a few months to operate :) in both our cases it was mounted on a wheeled rather than tracked machine.
The wheeled version was a basic tractor that had framing added that the front loader and backacter were attached to. That backend could be removed and weights added, on the wheeled version you could use the 3 point linkage for any farm implement.
