Those are professionally made for moving small airplanes around. You sit on the hood and face the plane behind the tractor. And, move the plane around by its front wheel.

I think that would make a great base for a GT lift to pick them up and carry them into the shop. I don't remember who built those, but I've seen them around before.

I think those are quite cool. I  wonder how many have been produced?

 

 

Edit: Check this out. A thread I found on them.  http://www.wheelhors....php?f=9&t=3687

 Tractor reuse! They are different.

I would agree with you as they seem to be reworked for a specific task and not just hacked for grins.
