Term 1 – Week 3 – Tractors & Quads

The majority of this week was spent gaining skills on the tractors and quad bikes.

On to the next level of tractor

Now I’ve driven all three of the tractors at the Bannockburn campus. The easiest one is the little John Deere. It’s very simple and intuitive. The next step is to get better at using the bucket and then towing implements, such as a sprayer or mower.

Riding the quads was a lot of fun once I got the hang of them. We went out to the motor track and had a great afternoon racing around. The quads have a roll bar installed to add some protection, otherwise they can be pretty dangerous.


Weather – Hot and sunny! We’ve had a last little bit of summer before autumn hits.
