Re: Front Loader

Hi, I have used modern tractors with the latest front loaders.The one fitted to my 1412 is probably 40 years old as is the tractor and probably at the time it was supplied, it was considered fairly easily detatchable. As you say there were lots of different loaders available, so it may be difficult ...

Front Loader

Hi, I am trying to identify the front loader fitted to my 1412. Before I attempt to add pictures perhaps a description would help. It looks very similar to an LQ9 but has a fixed support tower on each side with a link bar joining them across the bonnet.The loader arms have a smaller "tower" each sid...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, it's not so much lessons learnt, as I said I have dealt with Tyto before and been happy with the items purchased. As with most of this type of company, many of the products are pattern pieces and probably manufactured in countries such as China etc. and are externally just copies of an original ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, Have emailed twice,no response at all!! so reluctantly I feel I must name this company[although I have purchased parts from them before with no problems]. They are TYTO Agricultural, Nantwich, Cheshire CW5 8LR. In some ways I can understand their problem which is that they have several of these ...

Re: Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, Still no reply!! I carefully inspected the exhaust on receipt, all seemed in order and as I said, ran the tractor several times and all was OK. Only on revving did it lift off, by which time I had already given good feed back. At the same time I had ordered an exhaust for my Super Major which on...

Beware 1412 exhaust on ebay

Hi, I recently purchased a new exhaust for my 1412 off ebay. It duly arrived and I was quite impressed with the quality and finish. As I usually do,I gave it several extra coats of paint and once dried fitted it to the 1412.Initially I was impressed by the silencing properties but after a few gentle...

Re: A couple of David Browns

Hi, The 25D is interesting, the twin wheels are not unique, in the1950s Bertram Mills Circus used twin wheeled 25Ds for hauling heavy wagons around the various fields where mud and soft ground could be an issue and also to "pull up" the Big Top. They were coloured in mid-green and red. As I was only...
