Just like classic cars vintage tractors are prized by collectors around the country who take great care in restoring these aged mechanical work-horses to pristine condition.

The proud owners then pit them against one another in feats of strength and pulling power under competition rules overseen by the National Historical Machinery Association Inc.

Alongside the vintage tractors axemen from around the country will compete in a variety of wood-chop events thrilling spectators as they wield razor-sharp axes to chop their way through hard native timbers.

This is a great day out for the family featuring community stalls, arts & craft, local produce and static displays of vintage cars & engines all just 15 minutes from Kyneton in Victoria's Central Goldfields.

Gates open at 10 AM.
