* My First Plough Match

Posted on October 22nd, 2012 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


Saturday 20th October 2012 is a day I will remember for a long time. I drove my tractor and plough to Norton Plough match. It’s about the closest event to me and as I don’t have a truck or trailer the closest to drive to. The weather was glorious as you will see from the photos. Being prepared I’d put on loads of clothes for the cold and waterproofs in the bag just in case. In the end I was taking jumpers off as it was too warm. I’ll be expanding this post but for now take a look at some of the pictures. A big thank you to Roy for standing around all day and taking the pictures. I was so busy there is no way I would have been able to do it. Where does the time go. it was only a 33ft wide plot.

There were 15 in the Vintage hydraulic class 4, I came 10th. I am so pleased. I’m itching to have another go and learn from my mistakes.

I think the new tyres may have helped with traction. Below is a picture of the tyres fitted to the hand painted rims waiting to be fitted to the tractor. I splashed out and went for Goodyears. I just think they look the best.

I’d also like to thank my sister-in-law, Rhiannon for sending me this wonderful long (66ft) tape measure it came in very handy on the day. and it was made in Sheffield. I’m sure it made the difference.
