Robbie Thorpe has been collecting farm machinery implements as long as he has tractors, and in this programme we take a look at some of his collection.
Using at least three different Fordson tractors, a Grey Fergie, a John Deere rowcrop, a Ransomes smallholder's crawler, an International BTD6 crawler and several others, Robbie works a variety of cultivation gear, including a Howard Rotavator, a massive Ransomes Twin-way reversible plough and a home made duck-foot harrow.
There's also a fine old Welger baler, a Vicon Lely hay tedder, a Russell drill, a Howard Rota-spreader and a Wilder beet topper, but perhaps the star of the show is a Catchpole Cadet beet lifter. Seen first in a field corner with a tree growing up through the works, we see it through to its first beet crop for many years, working alongside the very latest modern equivalent.
