    If you look closely at about :20 seconds, you can see the right side of the wagon has slipped off the road. About the same time you can see the deep ditch on the near side of the road. The ditch on the far side is most likely the same way.

    Yes the loss of that tractor is indeed a big deal to the entire village.

    For the first time we see a semi-tractor (two actually).
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    it looks to me the some of the bolts in the top of the bell housing were not fitted, as the bell housing is not broken all the way around look near the end of the video were the guy on the right touches something near the gearbox.

    I really feel bad for that tractor owner. It was probably his livelihood, prize possession and he will not be able to replace it. I wonder what in the heck was keeping that wagon from rolling?

    FWIW: Apparently a 46hp 7250 DI MF built (that particular model launched early 2018) by MFIndia,
    pic of 2019 model: "Power-Up" with a "Power-Paanch" (sic!) transaxle...

    and given its near pristine condition, it never had the chance of getting many hours of work out of it.
    Just sad to see, really.

    More Indian tractor pulling, (jump to 00:40):

    The tractor was repaired & serviced yesterday=forgot some bolts.

    MY TAKE IS IT WAS THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE TRACTOR'S BACK.

    Cheers

    Corrupt pollies are all around the world. That country's economy is in the worlds top. The western pollies hide behind unconstitutional laws THEY interpret to be case so they can hide it all under the table. We used to have a middle class but the scope has widened so far that we have the very rich, the very poor and scattered inbetween are the tax payers being screwed by political whim. They feed us gigo.
