This is a big one. A really big model which appears to be genuinely 1:43 scale, before Corgi lost their nerve and made big vehicles in small scale and little ones in big scale in a sort of Narnia style of making everything more homogenous. If this is really 1:43 scale then it is a 12 foot cut machine which seems about right.

It was first released in 1959 with all metal parts, the tines and combs on the front and all the wheels were metal. The first update was in 1960 when the combs were replaced with plastic and again in 1961 it got plastic wheels. It remained in the range until 1964. In 1968 it was given a new release and remained in the catalogue until 1972. The earlier releases have yellow wheels, first metal and then plastic. This last release has red wheels of a later design, the same as the ones used on the Massey 165 tractor.

The one to go for is the later model with plastic combs and wheels as this is the highest value version
