I found the tractor and saved it from being scrapped .I this is when insanity set in, I wanted some thing to do when I retired

And this was it

The anzani iron horses were made in the early forties 

After i restored it I sold it to a friend and he sold it the chap you see in the photo

Hope this helpsAnzani 2005 013.jpg Anzani 2005 004.jpg Anzani 2005 018.jpg Anzani 2005 021.jpg Anzani 2005 009.jpg Anzani 2006 026.jpg DSC_0080.jpg DSC_0081.jpg Anzani.jpg

 

There are some of the tools that came with the tractor

The engine in the tractor is a JAP 5 fitted to a Fort gearbox and centrifugal clutch

That is a beast of a machine. You did a great job of bringing it back to life. How hard was it to find the parts you needed? That plow looked to be in amazing shape for its age. Great work.

Nothing like taking on a little project :D
Thanks for saving it and for sharing the pictures. It's a very nice (and large) machine.

I wouldn't want to arm wrestle you. You must be in great shape to handle that brute.   I guessing it weighs 1000-1200 pounds? Thanks for sharing your story and pictures...

I just love the large "pedestrian operated tractors" as you call them.  It seems that two-wheeled garden tractors are more popular in your area of the world than here.  I always enjoy looking at the show pictures on the VHGMC forum.

you really have to respect a tractor with a 6X22 tire on it.
