HTN 54 - Published letter in the Tractor & Machinery Magazine, Edition December 2005. Letter written by Wilf Mole


Sandstone Estates will forever be known as the farm in the Eastern Free State of South Africa where the World Record Vintage Tractor Ploughing initiative commenced. We broke the record in 1999, the Australians broke it in 2001 and then we broke it again in 2002. Subsequently, the record has been broken a number of times by Ireland and Australia and the challenge has now been moved to New Zealand in 2006. Tractor & Machinery Magazine has followed the development very closely over the years and we in touch have stayed in touch with them. The attached letter in the December 2005 edition refers.
