Mike is making the most of a break in the rain to repair a problem with the tractor. We have a small two wheel drive Fergie which is ideal for topping the smaller paddocks but we have two other fields which are much bigger and have some rough terrain and for this he has to use the 4 wheel drive tractor. That's his story anyway. I think he just likes to buy classic machinery. Luckily he is an engineer and can restore or maintain most things. We bought a manual for the International off ebay and that combined with his extensive knowledge and experience (he used to race in hill climbs and built his own cars as well as building and reconditioning engines for may years) will, we hope, enable him to fix most things.
