I would put money on it being a "Home Brew" tractor. The front axles components are automotive for sure, and the rear end looks to be off an old 3/4 ton truck as are the rear rims (duals). Good build!

That is awesome! And yes it is home brew like Daniel said, the rear looks like a 3/4 Chevy, The front is great! They used a Chevy 1/2 ton 6 lug 4x4 spindle, Look how they used the Axle yoke were the U-joint usually goes, They made a pin and mounted through were the U-joint would be, That's a great idea! They even used the Pitman arm off a Chevy, GM alternator. Look at that custom center link between the front wheels( interesting shape) They must have ran something over (rock) because the front steering arm is snapped off and bent. Thanks for the pictures! Gives me some great ideas. :thumbs:

Chris, you have really sharp eyes to spot all that stuff! Whoever built it was very good at re purposing parts that's for sure. I wonder what kind of engine that is?

No...it was just some mid-guided soul that didn't remember the 'hidden' part of the slogan...the part that reads: "when it's running away in shame when a real tractor shows up" :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

How you guys see all these details in these little pictures??? Makes me angry I have to keep going back to pix to see and not seeing what you did. I was thiking that was a Wisconsin V-4 also. I know a fella wanting to put one on a Power King chassis and I think he's nuts! I do believe we should call this brand a "Homader".

gentle men went back and talked to the owner and he took me to the person he got it from and you all are correct it is home made. I let him read your responses and he said to tell all of you that every part you have named is correct (the steering arm got broke when the oweners grandson tried to unload it by himself grandson is 7) so fella's good job figuring it out
