New Ford tractor filming

In the heart of Somerset, courtesy of Dennis and Maurice Burston, we've begun recording for a DVD on Ford tractors 1965-85. The script will be by George French. Advance information about Ford Tractors 1965-95 is to be found in the blog of 29 August 2010.

1 Ford 5000 & Wilder

We started (left) with a Ford 5000 from 1965, owned by Steve Brinson and driven by Richard Duckett. It was working with a Wilder Twin-Chop forage harvester and a Massey Ferguson 17-7 trailer.

2 Ford 4000

Next up (right) was a beautifully restored 1966 Ford Major 4000 owned by Ken Hallett. George French used it to work a New Holland 30 flail mower.

3 Ford 2000 & Crimper

Andy Duckett demonstrated Steve Brinson's 1967 Ford 2000 (left), working with a New Holland 401 crimper.

4 Ford Force 3000 & Wuffler

The Ford Force 3000 (right), owned and driven by Richard Duckett was coupled with a Bamford Wuffler hay tedder.

5 Ford Super Dexta 3000

Maurice Burston took the helm of Bernard Tomlinson's 1967 Ford Dexta 3000 (left) and New Holland 445E cutter-bar mower.

6 Ford 5610 & baler

Four-wheel-drive was available to driver George French on George Langdon's Ford 5610 (right). The baler was a New Holland Super Hayliner 276 feeding to an SKH bale sledge.

13 crew

Finally, here's some of the gang (left) lined up at the end of the first of the three days' filming.
