Boy am I glad I logged back in!

Will, that is so cool. I studied each one of those pics... So I know how to drive it someday ;)

Looks pretty complete, take good care of those stickers. IDK why, but I really dig the rear wheels being open like that... How thick are those three spokes?

And did you drive it yet?



"Drive it someday" ?????? Well, that just won't be possible. They drained all the oil out of it for shipping.
And, I haven't figured out how to translate the manual. :smilewink:

Spokes are about 1/2" thick.
Some of the features.
Diff lock.
Steering brakes.
Rear PTO can be engaged from seat, or with lever at back.
Disc clutch
And real heavy. 375Kg 826 pounds.

From what I saw of it in the crate it looks just like a full size farm tractor with all the features, just smaller.
Tough little tractor you got there Will. Good Stuff.

Well Done. Congrats to you on the long anticipated arrival, looking forward to finding out more about this specimen and the capabilities. Is there a thread here already that describes it more?

(...found it)
