Repairs to D4 Caterpillar Ploughing Tractor
The superb photograph is courtesy of Ian Cameron, Ballater, who has provided the information.
‘We often had problems with drawbars and hitches. Here is Ewan Ferries, ploughing tractor operator, welding his own drawbar while I take the photo’.
Perhaps Ian will comment on the location and the actual year this photograph was taken. Note the portable welding outfit that was standard pieces of equipment for the travelling mechanics who serviced the machinery out on the work sites. For once there is no wind and mud!
