Looks like a nice project. I like the way they put the headlights under the rear fenders. Don't forget some after pics.

That's a nice looking project :thumbs: is it considered a sub compact?

I would say it is a SCUT

Great project. That will be a workhorse when done or a unique tractor to take to a show.

Those are pretty much in the SCUT category. If considered to be a GT they would probably be the biggest ones ever made. That one looks really solid.

I agree with you about those headlights.  It gives it the classic farm tractor look.

 

That's a nice tractor!

We are not planning to restore it.  We replaced a valve, fuel pump, hydraulic hose, cleaned carburetor, and fixed the starter,  Our plans are to sell it because we just don't have enough room.  It is definitely unique with its 3 speed hydro static transmission and six foot mowing deck.

That would be a 60" cut deck.  Great tractors!
