I'm thinking they are 28's. If that is a full sheet of plywood, they are like 42 inches tall, small farm tractor like a Farmall or AC.

Those look like some old manure spreader tires and wheels, 20" or 24" rims. As for a project.....maybe could put them on one of the walk behinds to prevent so much compaction in the garden. :D

The tires in the picture, are 11.2 x 24, with an 8 bolt ag pattern. They are 44" tall. They originally came from a center pivit irrigation machine. Heavy little buggers, weighting 130# each, at least thats what the bathroom scales said when i rolled one over it.

Hmmm, a project is coming out of this .............have to inventory a little more................ :dancingbanana:

To be continued............ :rocker2:

Well probally wont go with that one, as thse engines dont have a good running life. It came out of an APU of one of the trucks, and only turns over under power at about half speed. I havent had time to open it up and see whats inside. They were made by some Japan outfit for Perkins and not the real Perkins engine. Like to run a diesel but they cost way to much, as we have a budget here.

OK, what if .......................

we found a heavy duty transaxil??


012.JPG this is way old school



011.JPG robust and a time honor way to get power on the ground.



While everyone was sleeping off the turkey coma, last week i jetted over to Indiana and picked this up. Individual turning brakes, single speed forwards, is reverseable with a small amount of work, took two men and a boy , to pick it up and get it on the truck. I think its perfect for building a huge walk-behind out of. Can you say Plowabunga dude......................


To be rebuilt......................... :rocker2:
