Took a break from restoring the walker to plow today. This is my 1963 Suburban, 6hp engine/ 6" plow. Went out to my sons and plow also in a place full of bricks, rock and other metal objects, no pictures of that but it looked pretty rough with the plow in and out of the dirt. Hit one rock so big it stopped the tractor dead. Luckily no damage was done. Enjoy.............. :bounce:

Thanks for the pictures!
Its amazing the work these little tractors can do :thumbs:
Most people today would think it was impossible for a 6HP tractor to turn up some dirt.

It's all in the gearing and the engines are thumpers not gas suckers like the new engines.

Looks great Jeff, she's really turning a row or two.

You sure are doing a nice job plowing !! I like how you left the duels on the left side , guessing to keep the right down in the furrow with just a single wheel . Al
