This is the second Tractor Barn programme in which tractor enthusiasts Stephen Richmond and Jonathan Whitlam look at the technical advances that have continued to increase the sophistication of tractors in the 21st Century.
In this DVD they cover New Holland, McCormick and Landini, Fendt, Challenger and Massey Ferguson. In each case they build up the picture by starting with the foundation models before going on to the latest variants.
Stephen and Jonathan also take a look at the computer control systems used to pre-program the tractors’ main functions as well as the implements. They describe the new self-driving features made possible by satellite technology. Axle and cab suspension also comes under the spotlight as the story of the modern tractor continues to unfold.
Stephen and Jonathan have been filming and scripting videos for over eleven years. They now divide their time between running Tractor Barn Productions and operating tractors and machinery on local Suffolk farms.
