This was in the September issue of Classic Plant they have a picture of both of Terry’s (the chief’s) internationals at Newby Hall, Ripon.

In brief the BTD6 Drott is a 1961 all original which Terry is the 2nd owner and the BTD8 doesn’t have a history but only has 2500 hours on the clock.

Terry started working for himself earthmoving etc. in 1967 with a BTD6 Drott just like the one in the picture which, in those days there were was nearly one on every building site in the UK. His first experience of taking the clutch out on a BTD6 without any handbooks and no knowledge and a cab took him 3 days in and out! Finally after some practice he got this operation down to 2 hours.

The BTD8 which is a series 2 about 1974, is a well-balanced tractor with the tracks in front of the radiator which is good for reversing up steep hills.

If you managed to get over to see us at the Vintage Working day and ploughing match this weekend they were both there and you may have spotted them.
