An enthusiastic crowd
of machinery enthusiasts is expected for the opportunity on the 19th
October to buy a 1982 registered County 1884 tractor. No more than twenty of these
machines are suspected to be left in preservation. Part of the reason for the rarity
of this tractor is that only a handful where built before the company that
built them County Commercial Cars Ltd went into receivership in February 1983.
Despite sales continuing until 1989-90 under a reformed company the number of
sales of the County 1884 remained low.
Scarcity and its striking
appearance are why this particular model is desired by enthusiasts, the one
going up for sale has also only recorded a use of 3,833 hours and is also
described as in super condition making it even more desirable. It is based on
the Ford TW-30, it uses a turbocharged and intercooled engine delivering 188hp
its high specifications at the time demanded an asking price in 1982 of
This tractor will no
doubt be a star of the show at the Cheffins auction. It will also be sold with
full documentation including original manuals, part books and sales leaflet.

About the Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
Our Daycare Unit provides specialised nursing and medical care for up to 14 patients daily, with around 70 patients on our register at any one time.
Our purpose-built ten-bedded In-Patient unit, was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in July 2002. A variety of accommodation is provided to suit patients’ needs and all our rooms have en-suite facilities. Some patients visit the In-Patient Unit for short periods to enable us to monitor and control their symptoms. Some patients will be admitted for care at the end of their lives when it is not possible to care for them at home.
The Lymphoedema Clinic began in 2004 and treatments are carried out by specialist nurses and therapists over 3 days each week.
Support for the unit is a continuous battle so many thanks to Nick for supporting our cause. We wish him all the luck on crossing the finish line.
What an Evening, Team TractAir took an early knock when our previous victor Alex Constantine was hit with a black flag. He never really recovered and our number 2 Richard Daddy was left to take the reins. Our opposition took us by supprise on a number off occasions with a really good precision driving and aggressive tactics. We pulled back despite a number of aggressive attempts to take the lead. It was Richard Daddys Team who’s relentless pursuit of victory, paid off with a 1st place trophy. Despite the intense heat of the day (28 degrees) it was a thoroughly enjoyable event.
After a few celebratory drinks in the winners circle its back to normal tomorrow.
We would like to thank our organisers, who kindly hosted and paid for the event.
