Got her all back together except for a few minor things: battery, exhaust, and hydraulic hoses. Other than that, she's ready to rock-n-roll;

Please excuse the board holding the 3-point up, no hoses as yet. Exhaust is giving me different opportunities, forgot about the braces for the grille. I think I have that figured out.
Daniel, if you still want to do the poll of her against Casey's Cat, feel free to borrow pics!
Oh yeah, here's a couple pics of how she looked before:

Wow Kenny, she looks great. I know you weren't heading for a "Restore" but you sure have given Bertha a "Resurrection"

:thumbs: Good Job, thanks for the pics!

I love it Kenny. Those tires look positively humongous! The hitch looks like a factory setup. Very nice!

Boy oh boy, that's a big change! Big Bertha looks about ready to throw her weight around.

Great job!

Looks great Kenny! It looks like a beast. I can't wait to see it in action! Are you gonna put any decals on it or just leave it au natural?

Looks great Kenny! I've seen a few Craftman's in that style that looked pretty good, but they all had AG's.
The Turfs look even bigger than ags. I like your color choice.

Great looking tractor, you did a fantastic job on it. You should have no problem pulling the world around as soon as you find the place to hook the tow chain.
