That is a beautiful job Doug, I see you painted the rear hitch lever red as well. I am betting to myself that you won't be drilling the holes for the tiller lift springs?

Your Massey Ferguson MF10 looks sharp as all get out Doug. You did a wonderful job on her. I love how the hood shined as you lifted it up. The only thing I am not sure on is the polished dash. Each time I see it though it is growing on me. :thumbs:

Doug, I have wheelbarrow wheel/tire combos on the front of the Springfield electric and I had it in the snow the other day and when I turned it turned. I know I have about 200 pounds of batteries but those tires are cheap and good in snow, believe it or not. I think the "rounded" tire profile might be the key to the cut in steering traction. It is no longer the best kept secret, I am spreading it all over the place!! LOL

Hint: Tractor Supply has the 4.00-8 (16") wheelbarrow tires on rims with 3/4" bearings (3 inch thru bore) on sale currently for $10 each (usually $19.99). (These rims fit most GT front spindles and you can't beat the price!!)
  • Sawdust said thank you
