Will, I too have been waiting all day. I hope he had no issues, just found more stuff to look at on the trip.


Yea, I hope he found things to look at, but it'd be nice to know what's going on.

Well, CLoudBurst VI is sitting in the driveway, still on the trailer.

My ""streak" is unbroken...it started raining on us when we were hooking up the trailer, and then we ran into a gully washer on the Ohio Turnpike. Fortunately I was heading West and the storm was heading East, so we passed through it fairly quickly, maybe 15 minutes or so.

Now...since you all have been waiting with bated breath...the pics

That looks to be in good shape.
How's she run?

Glad you had a safe trip.

Congrats on finding a G11!
Does it run, and what are your plans for it?

The pics make it look better than it is. It's pretty rough in places, and is going to need a good bit of work.

It did go on the trailer under it's own power. However, PO told me that it won't go in reverse. I haven't tried that yet, but will tomorrow.

There's quite a bit of rust in places on the frame and other parts, and the PTO doesn't look all that great either.

I think that unlike my other tractors that I just revive/resurrect and use, this one will get restored. It's rare enough that it deserves that.

Well, it's not that rusty.

The good thing is that it seems like EVERYTHNING is there, and the sheet metal is in good contition.

The only question mark is the trans. I'm hoping that the 'reverse problem' is something simple as I would like to keep it as original as possible.

I guess if all else fails, I could do like the NASCAR guy did and transplant a 1050 trans in it.

Looks like a nice addition to the family.
As for the rain: The least mother nature could've done was wait until it was on the trailer so she could get a rain water shower.

Nice haul there! That's a rarish one for sure! If only the G11XL were that rare I'd have a treasure! Glad that you made it back safely and thanks a bunch for the pics!
