Vintage farm tractors and machinery can represent an intriguing investment for agricultural organisations of all kinds. Some models which are in full working order may represent an affordable alternative to utilising brand new, costly kit. Others may be purchased solely for the purpose of displaying, restoration or heritage preservation.
As well as tractors, you can find vintage equipment designed for an array of other purposes, including ploughs and other tools for planting and harvesting. Whatever your intentions, be sure to select a vintage machine that is in a state of repair which you are happy to handle.
