So we are now the happy owners of a New Holland tractor. It is a 2002 model with 72 horsepower and 850 hours. It came with a front loader attachment and a bucket.
The sale didn't include any manuals, so Guv'nor has ordered both an instruction manual and a maintenance manual. Once they arrive and he's had a good read, he will be ready to start using it and able to show me what to do.
Our friend Fireman came over the other day to have a look at our new purchase and thought we got a good deal. He even fixed the air conditioning switch that I broke the first day fiddling with things!
