Power to the Ground DVD - Ford 4WD Tractor Conversions Part 1 Roadless Tractions

cover photo

Between the 1930's and the 1980's a unique industry grew up to convert conventional tractors into more powerful crawlers and four wheel drive machines. Roadless Traction Ltd was a frontrunner of this movement -first with the development of an exclusive system of crawler tracks and then later with their unique four wheel drive system.

This is the story of the agricultural tractors designed and built by Roadless, highlighting every model from the full and half track Fordson N's to the fated 9804 model, plus the Logmaster and Jewelltrac machines. Many of these machines were filmed at the spectacular Roadless 90 working weekend and to help tell the story, we are joined by Roadless Demonstrator Mervyn Ford and the present owner of the company John Bownes, who brings the legend that is Roadless right up to date.
