50TD has an outing again

Post by John.Newman » Wed May 08, 2019 12:49 pm

A couple of weeks ago, I put a new battery in the 50TD, cleaned it up and took it to one of our local country shows about 30km north of Toowoomba at Goombungee for a day out with our local vintage machinery club. I picked up this JD 4040 a couple of years ago and now set-up as my tow tractor out on the road. When bought from the original owner, it had only done 2200 hours and previously had a sugarcane planter and spray tank permanently mounted on it so only saw action for a short while once a season. Would have preferred a 1594 or 1694 but these are not seen around here much these days. Only seen 3 advertised in the past 5 years and none of these worth considering due to their condition.
The Chamberlain 9G in the background of the 3rd photo belongs to a friend and is the same as mine.
