Thanks for all the postive comments. What I would like to do after I get it running is add a hydraulic ooutlet system for impliments and individual brakes/steering brakes.

If I had a tractor like that it would by my prized possesion as well.  Only $50 too!  I thought I was doing good to get an old Craftsman for $60.

As said above, VERY cool GT. love the concept of him not falling in love with what was available, so he made his own

Any idea how the implements attached? What lifted/lowered and what is the big metal thing on the shaft on the rhs in the rear?

The creator made a special hitch that bolted on with 2 bolts. I do not know what it looked like but have heard that it has electric lift and some sort of 2 point quick attach

If I'm not mistaken that is the deck off of a Craftsman GT-18. That is an incredible piece of work. The part that makes me sad is that I didn't get to meet the gentleman before his passing. Could have spent many hours visiting with him. 

Thanks for posting all the photos.

That is a cool machine. The builder had a lot of time invested in it. Too bad the implements are not around.  Thanks for all the pics.
