I look forward to going this year, last year was fun! Boy it sure was hot out that day. Maybe I'll drag the bush hog out there for the event!

You aren't kidding about it being hot last year. It was brutal! I had to photograph a garden tractor out there for a feature article in LAGT on that weekend and it wasn't all that much fun. The guy who owned the tractor was from NH and I tried to talk him out of making the trip. We waited till after supper to get it done and it was still too hot. I hope it's not that bad this July.

Wow that's an awesome tractor you have there!

 

What rear wheel/tires are you running? Gives it a topfuel kind of look ;). 

 

Welcome!

The wheels were made from two sets of 8" wheels, cut then welded together to make one set of 11' wheels.

Still working on the flyers for the July Zagray show. Am hoping to have them done early next week and will post them here. I know - it's only Feb but it's never too late to start planning for these things. If you're like me, the planning is part of the fun. Will keep you posted as to how plans for the show are progressing.

  Also - don't forget that they also have shows the first weekend of may and Oct. I usually go to all three - weather permitting.

Yeah - I think those wheel weights were used on numerous brands of tractors. These were off of a Bolens and were black when I got them. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they're around 50 lbs . I poured lead into the back side where they're dished and added a disc weight which brings them up to 74 lbs each, just shy of the legal limit for the stoneboat pulls I enter.
I romove them when traveling long distances to shows where the tractor will be used just for display. As you probably know, they're not the easiest things to mount and remove and can be real finger smashers if you're not careful.

Yep - getting those things on and off is no picnic, especially at my age. It was bad enough when they were "just" 50 lbs, but now, it takes a lot of *#%@&%** to get it done. LOL. I usually back the tractor into the shed, pry the weights out to the end of the rods, then carefully pull them off and set them on the floor them roll them out of the way, where they stay until it's time to put them back on again. Needless to say, I don't go through this too often. About once or twice a season is more than enough for me.
The nice thing about these is that they're pretty much flush with the tires, unlike the 75lb Cub Cadet types that stick way out of the rims.
