Ploughing Tractors

Unknown tractors (Bowen 60s?) at an unknown site with lorry and Hiab type crane in 1980. The one tractor is hitched to what looks like a single furrow plough andit could have been used for cross draining following the completion of the ploughing. Behind the lorry there appears to at least one double furrow plough head (D60/-/)perhaps even two. There is a Ford like van behind the small bushes.

Can anyone say who the drivers of tractors and lorry are and which site or forest this ploughing took place on?

I think the ploughing tractors are CEW 70's.
The CEW 70 was a ploughing tractor designed by the Forestry Commission Engineering Division in Edinburgh and produced by Chapelhall Workshops.
The tractor was based on an International TD8B Series 2 crawler which had the track frames increased in length and was fitted with a TT Boughton final drive gear conversion that moved the drive sprockets downwards and outwards.
The track plate width was also increased and this combined with the increased track frame length gave a very low ground pressure.I think there were about ten of these tractors produced.

The crawler tractor was designed and manufactured by James Bowen & Sons ltd of Edinburgh.
