International B414 Posted by gordon bennett on 05/25/2013

I bought this tractor to do some grass topping. It has proved to be fairly reliable down the years, but is not what you would call a 'looker'. Normally, I start her up each year around Easter time to do some work, but this year, even though it was very cold in February, I thought I would make an earlier beginning.

Unfortunately, tractor's engine appeared to have some kind of blockage and would not turn over on the starter, nor when I cranked by hand. This problem has righted itself now with the warmer weather. Very strange.

Some issues at present with rims and tires at the rear. Punctures, so maintenance required. All in all, I am still very pleased with my buy and would recommend this tractor to others.
