Yeah - having a restored mower deck installed on a restored Panzer makes a big difference. You don't see them too often, probably because they're such a pain to restore. I think the wife gets just as many comments about the mower deck on her tractor  as anything else.

I picked up a sickle bar off of a walk behind, I wanted to adapt. it to the front of the panzer using just a plow beam, and run the pto to it. I have the rear plow almost done. and I have a cultivator I can restore too.

There was a sickle bar available, # 9AC5 that mounted under the tractor. I've seen one of those at Haynes' place. Are the rear plow and cultivator original Panzer stuff? What attachments are you bringing to the Zagray Show?

rear plow but its a brinley and front plow, mower deck and cultivator. Are you going to bring the snow blower? I have the slips when the guy bought this tractor and all the parts and prices they gave him. Very cool stuff. The guy kept all the paper work.

Ok - that's kinda what I was refering to (Brinley or Panzer).  Yeah, I'll be bringing the tractor with the snowthrower, which also has one of those two speed gear boxes installed,  plus the two tractors you saw at Zagray last year.

I did some horse trading with Haynes to get this one. I've never found one on my own. They usually were used with the tractor that had the loader. It works great for the snow thrower because I can drop the forward speed in half to get through the heavy stuff.

Lookin' good :thumbs:  I used to scuff the top surface of the letters with one of those Scotch Brite type pads to make the paint stick better.
