Most of these tractors are still working, but as interest in High HP machines increases, they are turning up on the show circuit and always attract a crowd, as the public rarely see them up close and enthusiast are also attracted by the sheer size of them. For most collectors, these size machines are aspirational, as few have the shed (Garage) space to house them. The previous Ford FW series are gaining in popularity with serious collectors (with deep pockets to run and move them).
