Nice looking blade. It looks like it won't be too hard to get that sorted out. I see you don't have any snow right now so you may have to wait a while to try it out. The 70 looks great.

Looks great! I like the tool tray and where you put it. Im sure you will have that blade working in no time!

The tool tray was an option on these tractors, not my design, just my version!

The 70I is ready now!

I made a 'secondary' lift lever to be able to clear the carburetor with the lift rod;

I'll paint the yellow part of the blade "construction yellow" when I get the paint (closest source is 80 miles away). ~~ Lowell

I like it, Lowell. I'm studing your tractor holder more. Really rather simple. Keep us updated.

Lowell, Once again you did a wonderful job creating the "Industial".
It reminds of the old tractor that Deere created from the model "R" to pull their pans

Here it is! Haven't decided yet on the 70 I decals, seem a little big to me?

Thanks!

I probably won't do much to the other 70 until next winter.  I need to paint the 314 as soon as the snowblower & cab come off, besides whatever else I have to do this spring.  And I'll need a new "winter project" next Winter anyway!A few more shots:

I started construction work operating one of those before going to 'Nam. That was a long time back.
