I did kinda overdo it there for a while posting so much , ha,ha.

  I plan to use the dueled up 4x4 tractor for pushing snow . 30 years I have wanted a mini 4x4 tractor with duels on the front and rear. When I see them at tractor shows I always take lots of pictures and think someday I hope to have one of those . I plan on redoing the Steiner tractor . Putting 30" tires will require to redo the frame , the fuel tank , the fenders , the front attachment mounts  and put duel stacks on it . It should make a perfect rig. I do not like how it looks . It looks like a lawn mower and I want it to look like a tractor . We'll see what I come up with and I'm sure a couple  of you will let me know if you hate it , lol

Steiner has a good start for a Steiger look-alike. Not to mention only needing one letter in the graphics redone.

I'm hoping to get the Steiner to look more like the Steiger with the taller tires and extending the frame and building new rear fenders and some front fenders . Those 30" tires and duels will make it look 100% more like a tractor than a lawnmower.

My 8 tires and rims for the 4x4 duelly project were sent out today and should arrive Friday afternoon. One other garden tractor project left for me to build would be my own garden tractor dozer on tracks. :wave:

For many years people sent me photos of their projects, sometimes they are on the crude side but I always gave everyone 100% positive feedback. So it is hard for me sometimes for people to criticize my projects in a negative way . I would never say a single thing to discourage anyone creating things with their hands in their little workshops. This is why I came back to see if it was just me overreacting . I'm giving it another try and hope this time everything works out positive. :wave:

 my own garden tractor dozer on tracks.

I sure can't blame you for wanting to build a small crawler. Every time I run into something concerning one of these I have to study it closely. Just can't figure out what I'd do with it when I was done building it. If you have a use for it I sure hope you will build it. :thumbs:

No real use for the mini dozer other than the enjoyment of trying to create it. and then share it at tractor shows. Same with most of my garden tractors, working on them has been great even not having a use for them. When they only cost $100.00 they don't have to do much work. I never drank beer, never smoked, never took any kind of drugs, so I figure the money I saved is buying all of this stuff, ha,ha.

I enjoy following your projects! I only wish I had your fabrication talent. I think the 8-wheeled articulating tractor is a great idea! I am glad you decided to come back!

 

Less is more , I was posting everyday and I think people got bored with my projects. A random post might be more interesting . :thumbs:

 

I don't know if less is more, seeing your posts put a smile on my face and many others, I am sure.
