The Best Model A (Sixty) looks like an early one too, 101A - 1125A if I remember my numbers.

Hi, Folks.
The exhaust stack on that D6 looks like it may hadda debate with a tree at some stage of its life.

Hi, naylorbros.
If my memory serves me rightly, 101A is still active and lurking in some hilly country back of a mid-sized town on the Central Coast, CA. - may come out for a breath of fresh air and some sunshine in late May.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

The skill required to not just twist those tag alongs into pipe cleaners is pretty impressive. Last photo looks pretty rough terrain…roots, rocks,…..

Keep safe-

That 5J working with the fertilizer blower in NZ reminds me of when I was very young, a neighbor had a blower to work on the steeper country in the very early 50's. My father being anex Spitfire Pilot got together with some other neighbors and acquired a Tiger Moth and started a business called Tiger Spread in 1954. It was a big thing in those days to spread super and sub clover to develop the country and increase the carrying capacity. We lived on th edge of the Snowy Mountains NSW, some what similar country to that shown in NZ.
