It is quite feasible that the remaining circular saw was the baby of the set-up. Despite lavish press adverting the Ransomes' Crawler did not do very well in the UK, the little grey Fergie being a far more versatile machine.
    Evidenced by the fact you can still see a million little fergies rotting away in farmyards, and see virtually no Crawlers. I think this is only the third or fourth I've seen. Wide tracks on a narrow wheelbase is not a good combination for crop efficiency!

    Of course a high up van seat location most definitely assists in the search, I miss a hell of a lot in my tarmac hugging scrapheap challenge
