Every year the vintage tractor and vintage vehicle section of the Cheshire Game & Angling Fair is always a firm crowd favourite. Growing and expanding year upon year, this often attracts many vintage and classic tractors and implements along with vintage steam engines and vintage stationary engines.
The engines that are exhibited have very often been found in a poor state tucked away for many years in barns & have been lovingly restored with a huge amount of effort & time not including the financial costs (which they don’t mention when the wife’s about). Very often parts have needed to be located or specially machined so these machines can be restored to running order that you see today.
The classic and vintage tractors will be appearing in the main arena from 13:15 onwards but visitors to the Cheshire Game & Angling Fair and come and see the vintage tractors and vehicle section anytime.
The vintage traction engines are self-propelled steam engines invented in the 1800s for any form of haulage with many being used in agriculture. On display there will be various types of steam engines; rollers, tractors, manufactured by the likes of Burrell, Fowler, Foden, Aveling & Porter and many others. The static line-up, showcases history in all its glory, a fantastic sight tosee!
The stationary engines are used to drive immobile machinery, such as pumps, generators, mills etc and a variety of these working engines will be on display giving you the opportunity to see them working.
Vintage and Classic Tractors and Implements
Many vintage and classic tractors and implements on display from various manufacturers will feature John Deere, Massey Ferguson, Ford, David Brown, International, Leyland and Allis Chalmers plus others.
