WRECKERS YARD: Down and out for Case 5130

Whilst rolling ploughed ground one autumn day, Jack Bailey thought he would show his fellow worker what happened to one of the farm’s tractors earlier that month. 


Parking their tractors on the side of the hill, the pair walked through the trees down  to investigate the remains of one of their tractors that had crashed into the wood.


The remains of the Case 5130.


After 20 minutes inspecting the damage, they walked back up the hill to be faced by the Case 5130 hurtling towards them.

The result – 2 tractors smashing into the same wood within a month. Who says lighting doesn’t strike twice?


Thanks to Jack for sending in these pictures.
