I was looking for pictures of a one wheeled Choremaster,a David Bradly walk behind and a couple of other unique machines that I used to have when I ran across pictures of this home made tractor that I used to have. I thought some of you might enjoy seeing it. If anyone is interested I do have a lot of pictures of this tractor including a lot of detail pictures.

Cool!  Someone took a lot of care in making that one.  Hydraulics and everything.  What did they use for the transmission and rear-end...willy's or something along those lines?  Reminds me alot of an Economy.  Thanks for sharing, and yeah, more pics would be nice to see!

I believe it has a old Ford truck rear axle and I am not sure what the 3 speed transmission is out of but I would guess it is out of a truck,it appears to be pretty heavy duty. I will post some more pictures tomorrow. Been a long day was at work at 5 AM this morning on a couple hours sleep,then plowed out the drive again tonight after work. I am beat and have to be back at work at 5 AM again in the morning...Think I will get in my recliner with a blanket to get rid of this chill and doze off...

That is a hydraulic pump of some sort out back. I was doing a lot of buying and selling back when I had this one.
