Modern Tractors Part 3: Out in the Fields

The sophisticated tractors of the 21st century, bristling with technology, have outstanding capabilities in the field. In their new programme, Stephen Richmond and Jonathan Whitlam of Tractor Barn productions demonstrate this with top-quality footage. They show the machines at work on their every-day tasks in variety of interesting locations.

In this third programme of a series looking at huge, modern machines, models from Case IH, John Deere, New Holland, McCormick, Valtra, Challenger, Deutz-Fahr, Massey Ferguson, Fendt and JCB are featured as well as an even more detailed look at a tractor which has been the most popular in recent years, the John Deere 7530.

For a true tractor enthusiast, the sound of the engine and the atmosphere the machine creates can be as valuable as the sight itself. This skilfully balanced programme includes plenty of interesting and relevant information about each individual tractor but also leaves some footage without a voice-over and lets the sound of the tractor speak for itself.

Stephen and Jonathan show several models from the manufacturer in the order that they were released - to chart the progress of their development and any changes and adaptations.

Made by enthusiasts, this DVD has the feel of a relaxed stroll around a working farm with an expert.
