Hello from Czech

Recommended Posts

Having bought a 312-8 in the UK last year for the princely sum of 135GBP I am now looking to put it to work around our property. Lots of ground work spring and autumn, snow ploughing come winter.... 850hrs on the horse, runs really well. I gave it the once over stripped down the carb, new fuel lines etc. New oils. Before winter is out I will be building a snow plough and grader. I have a 500l water tank to use for the blades.... Also need to convert an old horse drawn two bottom plough. Just on with making a clevis hitch and some lead wheel weights....

 

This site has given me plenty of ideas and I hope to be able to contribute in the near future!!

 

Cheers

Jody

Well....it was cheap... ;-) Also needed something better for mowing....although that said I now use an Etesia Hydro 80 for around the house as we run a guesthouse and I needed to collect the clippings....

 

Having realised what I can do with the 312, along with our love for good veg etc....I have decided to retire it from cutting duties and put it to work! :-)

 

AG's will be going on as well.....

How did you transport a garden tractor from the UK to Czech?  Is it a shipping issue, or do you just put it on the back of a pickup and get in the Chunnel?

I drove across to bring back some more of my belongings and picked it up while I was there....it was a long drive, but something that I was doing anyway...Maybe not a long drive by US standards but plenty long enough for me! :-) About a 4000 km round trip.

 

I will add some photos soon....Just dropped off the rear rim and footsteps to be sandblasted....will be mounting some new AGs....

Oh yes it is, that would be the same as a trip from Los Angeles, California to New York City.   :handgestures-salute:

What I want to see is your tow vehicle and trailer, if you used a trailer.  I love European vehicles as we don't get to see a lot of them here in the US.
