Massey Ferguson 35 3cyl reg. no. TWG  70.  This is an excellent example of a tractor that is popular in the Western Isles.  It is one of two family owned tractors restored by Roddy J Macdonald, this being the first.  Although restored it is not retired and is in use as and when required on the family croft, and was featured at work in our 2nd  video
Ferguson TEF 20 reg.no. SE  9818.  The second tractor restored by Roddy J Macdonald.  This example required more work than a previous restoration, but the end result was of the same high standard that would have made Mr Harry Ferguson proud
Lamborghini 854DT - 1987 model using a peat cutting implement. Peats are cut in springtime and dried over summertime before being taken home and used for fuel/heating over the autumn and winter.  Machine cut peat saves on a traditionally labour intensive job.  Peat machines are popular in Ireland, and are available in 4,6,& 8 spout form. Owner/Operator Hugh Maclean, Marybank, Stornoway
