What an awesome first build for a newbie like myself to follow, something I could never imagine, build, or buy lol. Great colors, I was "almost" right on my guess. I'm sure your very proud as you should be.

Thank you all for the nice comments you have made.
I'm pleased that you like the tractor and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to respond to my post during the construction on this project.


I bought some decals off ebay and they arrived today so I put them on the tractor
The gas tank has a "Wisconsin Engine" decal on each side and there is a "Shaw" decal on the side of the belt guard.

I had planned on working on the FMC Bean Cutler when this tractor was finished but I have changed my mind.
Back when I built the R/T tractor, I had bought a back blade and a rock rake for it.
These came with only one 3-point hitch unit so you had to switch the blade and the rake on the hitch to use them.
The blade is currently mounted on the 3-point hitch and I had planned to make another 3-point hitch for the rake so I didn't have to switch them back and forth all the time.

Here's the rock rake.

I've decided to use this rake as an implement for the Shaw tractor and I'm going to build it as a pull behind style like the "York Rake".
The Shaw tractor had a ratchet adjustment lever handle on it that can be used to raise and lower the rake.
I have a pair of 10 inch diameter steel wheels that will go good with the steel wheels on the tractor.

Scrounging thru ebay this week, I found this old cast iron trailer hitch from the 30's or 40's that will work really nice for the coupler on the rake.
The trailer coupler is hinged on the top and one side flips up so it can be set down on the hitch ball.
Then you flip the side of the coupler back down and rotate the "U-shape" metal strap down over the front to lock the coupler in place.

So ... this thread on the Shaw tractor is going to continue for a while yet.

Cool, we get to see more of this one. Those parts will go nicely with the tractor. I have one question, though. When do you find time to search e-bay for these goodies?:bigrofl:

Didn't your Ray's days are 36 hrs long? :bigrofl: But seriously, it is amazing to see how much your get done Ray, let alone Gttalk, ebay, etc. I hardly have to time go out and look at my tractor during the week (an unheated garage doesn't help motivate me).

I am looking forward to see the continuation of this thread and projects.

Ray, that should be a cool setup once you finish building the rake. Nice decals by the way.
