David brown film

Post by roscommon » Sun Nov 23, 2014 8:35 pm

I just stumbled across this old film apart from the nostalgia along with the answer as to who is buying all the spare parts ! And why they will be made until oil runhow s out it shows how to operate the hydraulics system, you will be in no doubt at the end that these tractors were built to the highest engineering standards as time has attested to

Nice clip - I think we have these on DVD at the club shop but not sure which DVD number this one is.

To whet the appetite for those of us into the older twin seat classic stuff.........

It was available as an optional extra right up to 1974, it was a safety device that when set, automatically disconnected the clutch when you hit an obstacle in the ground with a plough or cultivator, it had a spring loaded cable that attached to the special bracket on the top link and when the cable pulled the cable the lock clip released the handle and pushed on a rod under the tractor that was attached to the clutch pedal mechanism pulling the pedal down and stopping the tractor dead, it was known as a clutch release mechanism but not really designed for hitching up the plough as shown, that was just a useful but rather dangerous quirk of use.
