John Deere 6800 Lynx project: Breathing new life into a 30 year-old Deere

Back in 1992, Nick Ewbank and his wife Nicki set up Lynx Engineering at what remains their base at Long Buckby, Northamptonshire. Initially established to supply and fit Zuidberg front linkage and pto systems, the company was subsequently approached by Stoll in 1996 to take on the distribution of their front loaders in the UK and, from 2003, Lynx started offering retrofit reversible cooling fans. To celebrate its 30 years in business, the company is fettling one of the first tractor models it actively developed a front linkage and front pto for, the John Deere 6000 series

When John Deere launched its then all-new 6000 tractor series at Smithfield, Lynx Engineering had already taken all the necessary measurements to prepare a front linkage and front pto kit to fit the tractor. So by the time UK dealers took delivery of the first 6000 series tractors, Lynx had a readyto-go front linkage and pto kit available for the completely new range of tractors.
