Been kinda looking at this tractor at show. It WAS a speedex  at one time. Has orig frame and drive axle and that's about it. Has a big twin engine, and a pump to run the drive motor which looks kinda like a Case driveline. Really BIG chains to rear sprockets, two of them actually. Big hydraulic valve and pleny of hoses and ends. Not sure what purpose really was, maybe a portable power unit?  "Wanted $300 for it.

It's different thats for sure! Is it me or did that thing have a serious issue in the drive line? It looks like the sprocket on the right is bent and the c-channel the pillow block is mounted to looks bent and twisted? I think they might not have put enough thought into the drive train  when they put the bigger engine on it.

With all those hoses it almost looks like he could run a front loader on it and anything else setup for for hydraulics! And for 300$ that is an awesome deal

$300 is a deal on the parts alone.

Don't think that little Speedex frame could take too much more weight! Those things are only about 3/4" x 2" bar stock in the frames. Maybe 1" thick at most. Light front ends too. The parts might be worth some if you had a use for them. Didn't sell I don't think. Guy was gone today like most of the sellers. Last day is NO good at this swap!
