 I can't afford  much else. Just kidding. Went through the drag racing stage, offroading stage, lifted truck stage,and as getting older looking for smaller simpler projects. Seat time is good self time. Now I can understand why as my dad got older he mowed more of the field making his yard larger. I now find myself doing the same. I started with 1/2 acer and now up to almost 2.

I got into it due to the need of practical solutions to my problems.

 

I need....

  to mow grass

  to move snow

  to make some of the garden work easier

  to tow, drag, and pull on odd occasions

  something to tinker on when I'm bored

  the solution to fit into the space I have available

  to solve these problems without bankrupting me

 

A dependable old GT fits all those needs.

I'll show a photo of his tractor, he helps me a lot. I am building a house, garage and more. The box trailer 1200 kg. and I'm taking. This tractor, I go in the summer. It is small and comfortable with good handling. In the winter or in the rain, I ride on a different tractor.

It's amazing how useful even a small tractor can be. I used my Bolens 750 to assist when erecting some buildings here, too. That shear leg/ginpole you have looks handy, I use an 18' wooden one which i put up and take down as needed and store it in the rafters of the garage until needed again. With a block and tackle or other mechanical advantage, a small derrick such as yours, and a little tractor one man can get a whole lot accomplished.

Для более тяжелого веса, я использую другой кран.

 

Edit: For heavier weights, I use another faucet

The translator doesn't do a good job on that one! Doug T

Interesting, Dennis. Are you moving the lathe in or out? I'd like to see some details of the tractor you are pulling the car with too.

Это выглядит как жесткий маленький трактор. Можете ли вы рассказать нам больше об этом?

 

Спасибо за фотки!   :camera:

 

Разве это нормально, чтобы не иметь снег на земле в это время года для вас?

I've been doing a little technology invention from an early age. Father taught me, and I really like. Now we have winter and the pictures were taken in the summer. I bought the land and built himself a house. I bought more machines. We have factories in Russia do little equipment and you need to do yourself. Here in Russia everything is bad.Traffic police and removes all drive carefully, to hide.
 
For myself, I do a little different technique: cultivators, ATVs, tractors, cranes, trailers ......... I do not shop. On my site you can see the video. Then I realized you can not link (address).
 
Quietly I am going to tell you about the tractor.
 
tractor Weight 110 kg. with the motor.
 
The motor weighs 36 kg. power of 13 hp two-stroke speed of 40 km / h, four forward and four reverse gears, pulls the trailer load of 1200 kg. During the season I pass up to 3000 km. for 20 years but have never broke sending. I refit only changing the engine cylinder and piston.
 
Main gear bevel gears. Apply on the truck with the differential. Semiaxial diameter of 120 mm. satellite and 70 mm in diameter. Peredachnaya 1.8. Reverse gear unit is the same 1.8. Gearbox and clutch in the motor. From the engine to the gear chain.
Over the weekend, I take photos.
 
Driving the lower final drive gear:

The translator is a bit out of focus, but we are getting a good idea.

Very inventive build. Did you keep track of the hours required to complete the tractor. Was it built from mostly salvaged parts. Don
