An experimental tractor designed by Page Hunton of Thetford.

A film, shot in the fenland of Norfolk, demonstrating an experimental conversion of a standard farm tractor to one with large tank wheels for working on marshy ground for the commercial harvesting of reeds. Designed by RT Page of Page Hunton Ltd of Thetford, the conversion kit is shown to the camera. A conventional tractor is seen in difficulties in wet ground. The floating tractor is filmed negotiating the same ground. The tractor also crosses a lake where it demonstrates how the back wheels can be independently controlled.
