Project 20 - Part 4 (DVD)
Project 20 focuses on farming and contracting with modern classic tractors and machinery in Suffolk from 2019 to 2022. It continues in the spirit of the best-selling Project 55 DVD but features tractors from a much wider variety of manufacturers including John Deere, Ford, New Holland, Fendt, Mercedes-Benz, Caterpillar and Claas. These all date, where possible, from before the turn of the millennium.
Part Four finishes off the story. It begins in early 2021 and concludes in late spring 2022, showing a variety of activities as the farming year progresses. Highlights include the sight and sound of six classic tractors, with a combined power output of over 1000hp, working together with four large power harrows running ahead of a 12m drill and rolls to prepare and sow a 90-acre field of spring linseed. Articulated giants are not forgotten, with a Ford Versatile 946 in action drilling and cultivating, and John Deere 8640 and 8850 tractors carrying out power harrowing and mole draining respectively.
Other memorable spectacles include ploughing together with New Holland 8770 and 8870 tractors and rolling behind with a Ford TW-35 Force II, with the resulting scene reminiscent of the late-nineties. There is also a slight shift towards slightly more modern classic machinery in this final part, with Cat Challenger 75C and 85D and Claas Challenger 55, 75E and 95E rubber-track crawlers used for various tasks throughout the year. A good spread of machinery from a wide variety of manufacturers is once again shown in this fitting conclusion to a very unique and special DVD-series.
