Jewell trac 120 - Bruff Dainer at Belvoir Castle show 2009
|Preceded by||Roadless 120|
The Jewelltrac 120 was built by L F Jewell from a partially built Roadless 120 when they took over Roadless Traction Ltd in 1983 following the companies liquidation. Only one was built and sold to Bruff drainage who fitted it with a large hydraulic winch at the front and trenching equipment at the rear suitable for laying a variety of drain types/sizes. The tractor was built from the existing parts stock.
- Ford 7000 skid unit with Roadless creeper gear box and rear axle drive take-off for the Roadless front axle unit and swivel reductions. Heavy duty high flow Hydraulic system. The 120 was unusual as it was a County-type equal wheel machine, that used an inverted axle assembly rather than Roadless's usual straight axle design with un-equal size wheels.
This machine is now owned by RJ & JL Fenton of Leicestershire. It was exhibited at the Ford & Fordson Association Expo 5 at Belvoir Castle Steam Festival in 2009. Along side was a Howard trencher from the 1960s on a Fordson Major fitted with Rotapeds.
