This is in HD and so if the YT server is busy then it will be a stop/start video.

I have attempted a bit of voice over on this so you may wish to turn the sound off. :oops: :oops: :oops:

After you mentioned it on the other post I hunted the film down. Great video. I think the camera work is very well done and the voice over was interesting as well as being well timed against the various things happening.

I'm astonished by how smoothly that hydrashift shifts - It looked like it was swapping cogs more neatly than our new case mxu115.

It looks like you have a nicer soil structure in the midlands than we have down here - how deep does your topsoil go? After about 6 inches we get down to the clay, which makes life hard for the tractor on the subsoiler!

As you say a perfect match, we could be mistaken for being 20 year's younger here

Thank you Oz for the kind remarks. I'm not in the Midlands in this video, I am doing a bit of contract ploughing for a neighbour in Wales. I am about 900 ft up in this field.

It is quite light soil, far lighter than anything that I farmed in Warwickshire although I did go on to farms all over there when I was contracting and ploughed all sorts of stuff. From the blue lias down in the South of the County to some soot with a lot of stones in it towards the North. And there are a couple of areas of grade 1 red land in Warwickshire and I've ploughed on that a few times. That's lovely stuff to plough and if it's dry enough the mouldboards shine as if they are chromium plated. It's wierd.

I have finally cracked this video editing malarky, Hell's Bells, that was a bit of a struggle. And my Son got me one of those Bluetooth dongle jobbies and I stick that in the USB hub and put my earpiece on and can do voice-overs and move/edit/erase the audio clips which means that I can position any comments where I like. But I feel a bit of a pratt sitting in front of the pc talking to the monitor. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: Mrs. Scooby doesn't take any notice of what I get up to any more. She's had more than 40 years of watching me act strangely. :D :D :D :D :D But she held the camcorder and so I'll thank her and pass on all your comments.


As they say, it's easy when you know how.

Yes TEZB, things worked out right. I had all the tinwork re-sprayed on the tractor about 6 months ago and as the commentary says I steam-cleaned the plough before using it. I've never done that before. :wink: :wink: :wink:
