1902 Tasker Steam Tractor

This lovely little tractor named The Horses Friend carries Works No 1962.
Purchased by two old ladies in Crystal Palace who felt sorry or the cart horses working up the hill outside their house. The engine pulled the loads up the hill to save the horses.
Sold in 1969 to Jack Hardwick and has had various owners until purchased by the Moore family, the current owners.
Seen at the Shrewsbury Steam Rally, Shropshire, England in August 2013.
