Project 20 Part Two DVD
Project 20 focuses on farming and contracting with modern classic tractors and machinery in Suffolk during 2019, 2020 and 2021. It continues in the spirit of the best-selling Project 55 but features tractors from a much wider variety of manufacturers including Fendt, Mercedes-Benz, Lamborghini, Caterpillar, Ford, New Holland, Fiat and John Deere. These all date, where possible, from before the turn of the millennium.
Part Two continues the story, picking up where Part One left off in June 2020. As before the action is based around the farming year, beginning with pre-harvest work such as muck carting and some ploughing. Harvest starts at the end of July, paving the way for a wide variety of land work, with everything shown from mole draining, subsoiling and stubble cultivations through to ploughing, rolling, pressing, power harrowing and some early drilling of lucerne.
Highlights include the epic sight of three Caterpillar steel-track crawlers (D5B, D6D and D8H) working together with large Dowdeswell ploughs, boasting a combined 646hp and 26 furrows, as land is turned over in style in preparation for next year’s wheat crop. A Dowdeswell with a difference also makes an appearance in the form of a push-pull ploughing setup.
There is an ever-wider variety of unusual tractors in action as well as more mainstream favourites, meaning that there really is something to appeal to anyone with an interest in classic farm machinery. The story will continue in Part Three.
