Without doubt the Vintage Horticultural & Garden Machinery Working Day on Sunday 1 March was a very special occasion on the new site near Stanfield, Norfolk. It was full of excellent working classic compacts, which is the way the horticultural scene is going.

One of the stars was this 1986 Massey Ferguson 1020 four-wheel drive compact utility, which was made by Toyosha in Japan and features a 1.1 litre three-cylinder 21hp engine, with a ROPS cab. The work its driver produced here was excellent.…

It sounded an interesting project, so an invitation to travel to Hyde in Cheshire in order to have a look at this conversion just couldn’t be missed. “The answer was to fit a new engine, but this was not to be a regular four-cylinder diesel engine” John has been assisted in this latest project by his…
