What Can I Expect

Bring out the inner farmer in you with a brilliant tractor driving experience in Essex! Aside from their dog, a tractor is a farmer's best friend. Agile, reliable, powerful and always ready to roll, these incredible workhorses of the agricultural world are fantastic to drive.

If you think tractors are fairly rugged and basic, think again. Inside modern tractors like the John Deere 6 series and the CASE Purma, it's all totally high tech. From the mega comfy, centrally-positioned, swivelling driver's seat and console, to touch screens and control arms, it's gadgets and gizmos all the way. There are even impressive sound systems to keep a farmer entertained whilst they plough!

The view you get is really cool too. You're pretty high up and the visibility with the bulbous, glass-filled cabins meaning you can see all around your fields with ease. These machines really are the backbone of modern farming, with John Deere and CASE producing everything from huge combine harvesters to seed drills. The good old tractor is the totally multifunctional must-have for any farmer, as you'll soon see.

A field on an old airfield in Essex is the location for your tractor drive. A number of handily placed hay bales will create the track that you'll be negotiating in your trusty tractor. Climb aboard and get yourself settled in the hydraulic hot seat. Fire up that six cylinder engine (!) and get going.

Although mostly used to pull, tow and move things, a tractor being driven without any attachments is actually capable of up to 40km/h. The aim of the game here isn't speed though, you'll be trying to pick your way in your big-wheeled tractor around tight corners of this Essex course, trying your hand at a little bit of reversing as you go.

And in case you were wondering, the shiny green and yellow John Deere and his bright red CASE cousin aren’t just here for fun; they’re used for track maintenance and hay making by the owners. So these really are proper farming tractors with work to do in between giving us excitable non-agricultural types the chance to have fun too. Tempted? Book your tractor driving experience in Essex and get out there in the fields!

What a marvellous experience! The farmer, his wife and son were very friendly and made the experience even more enjoyable. The tractor was HUGE! and the sun was waiting time. Reversing the tractor was a difficult task to perform! The only issue is the directions: the postcode takes you to the hamlet of Langley and there are no (orange) signs to the farm (we had to stop and ask for directions) until you are just about to go up the lane! and that is long and winding past other farms and fields.
