Congrats on a great tractor! Looks to be in pretty good shape! If you get us the serial number, we can find the year.

I see it has a homemade hitch, are you going to put the three point back on?

If you enlarge the dash shot you may see the serial number on the top. But it is a 1972. the guy 's dad bought it new. The hitch was made at the Bridgeport mill works in ct.  I want to use the 3pt and 1 bottom  but the hitch is in need of some work.

I have been searching hard to  find this. It is pretty dirty but very well cared for. I feel very fortunate to have found it. It is such a fun little thing for me to just look at !  I hope to be able to mount the one bottom. I have a parcel I want to drag that plow through. The 3pt is in pretty bad shape compared to the rest of the implements and tractor. I guess I could have went on to find a newer kubota or  other newer model machines but......... this machine made in USA like my Harley makes me feel good. I have memories of years gone by and recollection of the US manufacturing prowess that my kids will probably never know aside form pieces like this.

Slick,

 

Did you get this one in CT? It looks great! I'm curious about the two decks. I wonder if one is a belly and the larger one mounts to the rear?? There is alot of info here, on the yahoo power king group, and the My Tractor Forum. We also have a small following on Facebook. Shoot me a PM if you want Larry's address for the PK Archive flash drive. He has an order in for more as he has sold a ton of them. It would be great if you can post pics as you do things to/with it.

 

Your girlfriend sounds like my wife. She thought I was crazy plowing snow for 2 days after the blizzard. LOL!

 

Welcome to the club!

Steve

I did get it from ct . The orig owner gave it to his son. The son didn't need it. The owner worked for Bridgeport Mill works. He was head of maintainence. His attention to the machine shows in its condition. The decks are both belly mowers. The 48 in. needs bearings on main spindle. The son broke the pulley trying to pull it so it needs a new one. The 6o in. is in better shape. Both have all covers but the 60 has no deflector on the shute. What I want to do is get the 3pt replaced and mount the moldboard and tear up some dirt. I am happy to meet all the people here. Thanks for the info. Rich
