I have been asked to put this on the forum which I am glad to do:

http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2013/10/trac ... oln-field/

Further infomation:

The tractor was parked in a field overnight behind a cottage, it was taken between 11pm and first light. The driver discovered the tractor gone at 9.00am. The thieves had driven the tractor away from the cottage, away from the gateway to the bottom of the field and removed the dual wheels ! They then drove around the edge of the field furthest away from the cottage to the gate and away to the west (Newark/Grantham/ A1 area) The tractor was attached to a set of Cousins 6m Contour Cambridge rolls which were also taken. The tractor is 4wd with 12000hrs on it !, 3 aerials on the roof, Home made front linkage, bonnet mounted exhaust(rare), 12x38 rear tyres and is in very good condition. The Rolls are in good condition and have 2 new rings painted black on the middle gang and a chain hung on the rear axle.

I think we've decided t's really a 6200 - a shame all the news reports have got it wrong.

It may be this tractor ..?
