So you are now Texas Ford Hog Horse and Deere? TFHHD? Two great hauls, did they come from the same place or did Karma strike twice?

Here are some photos of the Ford. It is kinda rough sheet metal wise, but runs out great. It has a Kohler, KT-17 Series II engine. The guy who had it, several attachments for it that we couldn't get, but we did get a mower deck, tiller, sickle bar mower and a snow blower. Also got front ant back wheel weights.

That is a nice buy right there! The deck looks hardly used, as does the sickle.

I do Bob, and will need some nice sheet metal for it. Do you have any of these in parts?

That's a sweet tractor Brian! I didn't realize that the change to Gilson occurred as early as 83. That's a nice set of attachments as well although I don't imagine you have a lot of use for a snow blower.

Not unless I move back up north or we see that big climate change they keep talking about. :D

Kenny, There is a right angle gearbox mounted to the tiller up under the engine where a belt drives it from the front PTO.

I will take a couple pictures first of the week for you.

Looks like a Haban sickle.
What is the pipe sticking out of the hood?

Will, It is a Haban, the pipe was used to follow the planter marker, or crop row cultivating. So I was told..
