Edendale Vintage Club's Crank Up 2019

Recommended Posts

I know how much you guys like photos so here are some from Crank Up held the last weekend of January.

This years theme was David Brown, Land Rover and Citroen. Somehow I have lost the photos I took of the feature vehicles and tractors but here are some that I haven't lost.

We had some guys who were keen to have a drive of our tractors ,so we let them , it was actually nice to watch our tractors being paraded for a change and to get some photos. I know it brought back some memories for a couple of them. I hear they were still talking about it a week later.

My 1941 Farmall A driven by my brother in law.  Before he had his knees replaced he would not have been able to get on this tractor so was great he wanted to drive it.

Our 1945 W6 driven by another brother in law  This is the first show we have had this tractor at.

Dad's 1945 Farmall H driven by a friends uncle. He grew up driving Farmalls like this and is now 86 years old. It had been a long time since he had last driven one and couldn't get on it fast enough. He even returned on the second day just to drive this tractor again.

The temp is usually mid 70s to low 90s during January. The weekend of the show it had rained and was a bit colder than normal.It was about 75 during the show so not to hot due to a cool wind blowing.

It was a real buzz to see the traction engines in the tractor pull. The oldest engines pulled that trailer the longest! Their torque was/is fantastic. But at least two hours from lighting the fire till you can move so no fast get aways.
