How was the object repaired?

Worked on it over a couple of months with a local mechanic, just whenever we had time. It was a Ferguson 35 with 65 engine in it.

Why did you repair the object?

Bought it from a local farmer called Lawrence (so we always called the tractor La). It was a tractor from the early 60's if not before. The wheels were off it and the engine was gone, you know it needs fixing up that’s all. It had been used as a run around, going to and from town, drawing hay through the land. In fact it wasn't even new when Lawrence bought it, he got it second hand. Thought I could use it as a small tractor. Fast little tractor, had it for 10 years or more before selling it on again. It had no cab, so no need for air conditioning! It had a roll bar on it and no power steering. we used it for turning hay, scraping the yard, with a hay Bob and with a power washer.

What would be important to you to be included in a Repair Declaration for Ireland?
