The preservation of old agricultural machinery keeps our heritage alive, says Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society curator John Burnett.
The club was started in 1965 and now has about 200 old tractors on display at Brayshaw Park, Blenheim. One of them, a 1954 McCormick Farmall tractor, was restored last month and is looking brand new.
The job took 130 hours, says Spring Creek engineer Trevor Collins, and he did it for free. He is semi-retired and wanted to thank the club for loaning him old machinery parts to replicate other restorations.
