MB Trac Agric Engineers

Anybody know of a good Agric Engineers who will be able to finish off my MB Trac project.

The project was to convert a forward control MB Trac with crab steering and demountable sprayer into a woodland forwarder by retaining the demountable chassis of the sprayer and attaching bolsters. I would then attach a 3 point link from the front of my other MB Trac onto the back of the tractor and then mount my 3 point crane and log trailer on behind. Bit of forestry guarding. Job done Simples.

Two years later finally got the tractor back and will probably have to start all over again from scratch.

They charged 1450.00 to supply and fit draw bar inc alot of work just in front of axle not shown. During the winter they are a bit quieter and welcome work to keep the workshop busy.

Re: MB Trac Agric Engineers

Alan Johnson is the name but I cant find any contact details. Just west of Dunscar on the A565.

There is also another chap who does similar work in a big unit behind Causeway Garage at Rufford on the A59
