That is one good looking machine. You better hang onto it, you'll never find another in that shape.
Thanks for the photo's


yeah i know, when i got it it was in incredible shape! the only dents or damage were some LITTLE dents and dings on the front top corner of the hood were it was droped on the ground when opened. 5 minuts with a rubber mallet and a ball pein hammer straitened it out. other than that there was a little damage on the chain gaurd where it hits the grear. i found a pic of me trying to braze it but the cover is way to thin and i kept burning through with the torch. neither me or my dad could make it good so we cut out themess we made and riveted some tin over it, it actully looks pretty good. the only pics i have right now are the same side. i found a ton on my dads old phone but i have no way of getting them off of it. (thats were the brazing pic is) i have to take it to verizon to see if they can get them off. if i get them you can bet ill put them up.

My Uncle had a tiger I think. It was about half the size of a MH Pony, from recollection. I will have to ask if he has any pictures.

That's a great piece, thanks for sharing it, really nice job.

Actually "Had" is the word.

I know who he sold it too... am starting the process of tracking it down.

I have a few pics of the restoration process, will get them scanned in soon. One is a decent pic of the plow. Looks like it goes a long way up under to mount.

nice tractor, who ever restored it did a great job.that ones the same as mine. another cool feture is that you can adjust the hubs to be wider or narrower, you can see it in tha last pic one is close and one is far. i assume that was for plowing.

The left one was all the way out to counter the sickle some, the right one was in to use the plow.

hope to get the other pics scanned after I get home tonight

Yo Ryan, sweet Tiger! Nicly done buddy.

Here is some information on Tiger Tractors and the company that built them.

http://gardentractor...y-52-883-tiger/

I have two Tiger 883 tractors. My friend Donald has ??????? maybe 15 or 16! He has a web site all about Tigers:

http://www.tigergardentractor.com/


You have a very fine tractor there. They are rare but since we started these web sites we have been able to contact many folks who have Tigers and now they're coming out of the woodwork. We are on a mission to save as many Tigers as we can find. You have done a great job on yours and I hope that you will continue to take good care of her. Please feel free to join my Yagoo Tiger Group and look over the photos section. The guys there have lots of info and are always ready to help out. Donalds web site is loaded with more good info too. Be sure to stop by.

Thanks,

Kevin

Thanks again! I looked at those sites, the first link is a link back to this thread. Lol. Not sure if you did that on purpose or not.
