My 71 1614, there was guy who moved and he sold this tractor to another guy who sold it to another guy.(my family knew them all) The last guy had it on craigslist for a long time and i emailed him in august about it then he stopped by my house and told me i could have it... for free! Put a new coil on it and it ran perfect. I use it all the time and it earns its keep. I have no attachments for it but i do have the brackets and mule drive to mount a belly mower.

I use it to do ordinary GT jobs like pull trailers, tow things around when needed, and drag logs. Sometimes I take it for the occasional joy ride if i haven't been getting enough seat time. My "joy rides" mostly consist of just cruising around the woods. Where i live, there are rock walls EVERYWHERE. The walls would present to be a challenge for most GT's, but not this one. With chains, steer brakes, and calcium filled tires, the walls dont phase this machine. So yes, you could call my tractor "a rock crawler"


Interesting tractor and walls. The only other time I've seen walls like that in the woods was in Gettysburg. Though the Civil war didn't come that far north, right??? If not, then are they from an earlier war? Revolutionary or Indian Skirmishes?
Watch - I'm probably way off and it was a bunch of kids who wanted to build a fort or something....

No, I live by a stream called quasiak creek. (I know I spelled that wrong) and there was an old settelment a couple hundred years ago. It would be impssible for a few kids to build them, it would take a huge, huge... group of people years to build. They are in squares, say, about 300 feet by 300 feet. These squares are all over, not just in the woods behind my house, but driving down the road I see them every where I go. I wish I had more info on them because it always amazes me when I go into the woods. Thousands and thousands of rocks... probably millions...
