Pictures from the Southwell Ploughing Match held
over the Weekend.I am using my SC and a Ransomes
Motrac plough,the only Case competing and certainly
the only 3 Wheeler. Also there was a class for Ford
Doe tractors which are quite rare and to see this
many ploughing together is unusual.

I"ve been meaning to ask this for a while, but I"ve noticed many English tractors with plates. Do you have to plate tractors like cars over there? Just curiosity.

Thanks for the pics!

All tractors have number plates,they have always used the same number and letter combination as cars.We used to have a 3 letter code for an area then a letter for the year,not as interesting as your plates with State slogans on.I visited Oklahoma some years ago and called into a scrap yard to get some old vehicle plates,I was offered tea but was surprised it was iced as we only drink hot tea in England.

So, once you get a plate... that's the plate it has as long as you own it?

Obviously, we don't use plates over here for tractors (at least not here in the Midwest) so I've been curious for a while.

the Ford "Doe" you mentioned, I'm assuming that's the Ford that looks like two units joined up? Were those factory offerings or purely custom items?

Yes,the plate stays with the tractor.
During the 1950s farmers in the United Kingdom in need of high-power tractors had few options. Essex farmer George Pryor developed an ingenious solution to the problem by creating his own tractor. He did this by purchasing two Fordson tractors, removing the front wheels and axles and linking the two by means of a turntable which provided the steering action powered by hydraulic rams. This left him with a double-engined four-wheel—drive tractor capable of producing more power and outperforming any of the conventional tractors on the UK market at the time.
Local Fordson dealers Ernest Doe & Sons agreed to build an improved version, the first one was completed in 1958 and called the Doe Dual Power, later changed to Doe Dual Drive and abbreviated to Triple-D.However few implements were available and the horsepower was not that large but they are valuable now to collectors and quite rare.

The soil looks to be loam?

Nice plowing! Do you have any pictures of the whole tractor and plow? I've always thought it was easier to straighten out kinks in your furrows with a three wheel tractor, but if you don't pay attention they put them in quicker too. Mike
