I rember the remains of this tractor,no bonnet and only bits of the engine. The engine was damaged driving the mill. We played on it at the edge of the banks near the barn close.It was moved to the other side of the bay and used to tie up the Kia Ora. Andrew Burghes broke it up for scrap and removed it.
