Here they are basking in the sun after a much needed bath. Even got some polish on their shoes. Not sure what the conversation was, but they were nose to nose. I'll have to stable them for the night, could have some storms tonight or tomorrow! But, for now they can get their tans.

cool tractors Kenny. Love the looks of that Ford. Nice job on the resto.

...Never knew Craftsman made anything that big until the Danville plow day last month. The thing is a tank. Whats the difference between the two models?


Probably about 400 pounds!

Not sure of all the differences, but the FF's had a hydro and hydraulics. I think they were Onan powered, but not positive. Body parts were shared, but the FF's had side covers for the engine area. Rear end was a 6-bolt hub...


The FF's had quite a bit larger footprint too. They are quite a massive machine!

Ryan, the Cub is a 108. I do have a 48" deck for it. It's in good shape, just needs new paint.
The girls are under the roof and ready for the showers that are expected today.
Thanks for the comments, guys!

Keith, they are on there, look again. Bertha had a lot of dust from the shop on her, wanted to get that off.

I'm on the laptop right now ,and can see them fine LOL Dang small screened phone .... She looks swell ! when is she goning to get plumbed up ?
Also I did some looking to see who made the hydraulic valves for the Fords and Cessna was one that looked very similar and the one on our 165's is a Dukes, Cessna is the only one still around that I have seen, though I didn't do a lot of searching on the matter.

Thanks for the info on the valves. I think the ones like I put on Bertha are from earlier models. But they used it on the front hyd. kits.
