    Default I'm fed up now

    Thought I'd share with you just what I have been busy with for the latter half of last week and today. I can now state that I officially sick of my life!
    This is a Massey Ferguson 2210 tractor. The operator tried to tow something that was way too heavy for it anyway but to add insult to injury, he left the parking brake on for good measure (muppet!!!). So, clutch, layshaft bearing, PTO bearing all s4agged. Cab off, split, gearbox stripped and rebuilt etc etc etc. Sorry for the quality, they're off my mobile.



    clutch done

    top of gearbox after I'd rebuilt it

    Ready for the cab again

    Oh it's being recharged to his department Micky. You see the tractor belongs to Transport and the Grounds dept hire it for the cutting season, so they get billed for any NMD (Micky will know what that stands for )

    The guy should have got himself a John Deere, cant go wrong with those beasts. (sure micky will agree).

    my dad uses them on his farm, im amazed at how much abuse they can take and still carry on going.

    But anyway back to topic. I must say anyone who can do a job that big deserves respect for theie knowledge, well dont fella!

    What a plank for leaving the parking brake on though lol!!!

    Thanks for the vote of confidence there but believe me, I'm no agricultural equipment technician, there was moments of head scratching I can tell you. Anyway, it will be back to graft tomorrow hopefully and I never want to see it ever again
