If something as bizarre as that would happen... I think I'd take it as a sign - you cannot just sell it and buy some VW Golf for it.

I was thinking of taking some time off lately and would combine it with LIBs roadtrip phantasies (Drive to Gambia)... Around the world in a tractor sounds like an awesome roadtrip idea (or at least some part of it) - and given their off road capabilities probably not even as stupid as it first sounds!

Especially as the model to be won looks way more comfortable than any tractor I have driven... they nowadays come with full cabins, climate and radio - even for the tiny 55bhp ones like those.
Not as silly as you think. This guy went to south Italy

I see no reason why children couldn't also drive the tractor. Do you need a licence for one of those things? Obviously I'd be telling my 4-year-old to keep it on the driveway and the lawn (and keep off the rose bed) ...
On the road? 14! But the trip it has to be in direct relation with the work on a farm (Landwirtschaftlichefahrt). 16 other wise.

As I come from Norfolk in England, I find myself intrigued with the possibility that I could finally have my very own tractor, although I'd have preferred a combine harvester option.
At least they have roads here, not rudds.

Which bit orf nawfuk?
