Lokomo Plough in Speymouth Forest

Forestry Commission copyright image of Forest Research photographs courtesy of Glenn Brearley, Roslin. A4201

Photograph taken by J S Oakley of the Lokomo NA15 plough being pulled through a forest containing quite young pine and larch trees in Speymouth area – possibly Teindland or Aultmore. No date is given but although the same BTD20 tractor (JUL514D) as used in Keilder there is now an additional tank mounted outside on the right hand side of the cab and the number plate shape has changed. The year could as late 1969.

The baulks of timber used as packers on the mouldboards have been changed also and are mostly sawn as opposed to round stems. There are no rear debogging slings but possibly due to the dry nature of this site (Teindland?)
