RAS FENDT TRACTOR PULLER

        

dieselross_angus_show_15.jpg 






















Model – Fendt 612 LSA
Year – 1988
Serial No. – 383/21/2207
Hours – 14,600


The tractor was originally owned by a farmer called Stephen A. Asquith, Manor farm, Condicote, Chelienham.


RAS bought the tractor on 02/12/91 from a farm sale along with a 312LSA which we still own and use daily, the tractor since then has worked daily on our contracting division until 2008 where it was brought in for a engine rebuild.


In March 2009 it was decided to make this tractor into a pulling tractor to compete in Scotland in the Super Farm class.


The tractor was stripped back to a very basic unit over a weekend and from that time RAS have manufactured & built the tractor to what you see today.


The original 612LSA was producing 125hp, but today with a much larger injection pump, larger injection nozzles and a larger turbo it will be a great deal more!!!


The tractor today still runs the original engine, gearbox and back end that it was supplied with back in 1988. The biggest modification has been done to the clutch to handle the extra horsepower, this clutch was designed & manufactured in our own machine shop at St. Cyrus. 
 
 
 


2013

BA Stores Working Weekend Saturday and Sunday 18th and 19th May saw Martin Ross win 1st Prize with Dieselross.


The Tractor had been fitted with a new Stainless Steel Exhaust Manifold along with a new Holset Turbo supplied by Cabo Turbos in Holland. These additions allowed Dieselross another full gear which achieved a better wheel speed on the day.


Angus Show Friday 7th June saw Martin Ross make a full pull on Dieselross with the first pull of the day. Martin was looking to make it two wins in a row but sadly Dieselross suffered from a snapped camshaft in front of a home crowd as the tractor left the line which put the Fendt in 3rd position.


A full engine rebuild is now under way which will include –
New Pistons
Liners
Valves
Shells
Cam Shaft
Heads being ported and flowed
To prevent the camshaft from breaking again the injection pump is now driven directly from the crank shaft via a tooth timing belt.


Next Pull
Great Eccleston Finals on the 24th & 25th August followed by BA Stores Scottish Finals on the 21st & 22nd September
