Thisprimitive 'British Anzani' rotovator was much the most dilapidated ploughing device at the ploughing match across the road a couple of years ago.

...and I think it would have taken the gentleman a long time to finish his set of furrows, to judge from his painfully slow progress, with many stoppages. There was 30 minutes between the two shots, taken from about the same place.

That thing looks like what we Americans call a Rube Goldburg contraption. It looks like it was pieced together with parts from a scrap yard. I think it is recycled dilapidation!

Alan,

That's what I admire about the Brits, their wit. That contraption won't win any design awards butit must have provided fruitful work for a small band of mechanics and machinists and seems to continue to do so.

Great submision, aloha
