   Is that home made?  or an actual tractor, I have seen small dozers but nothing like that.  Very neat and nice find

Nice piece. It doesn't look to be home built, but it different from any I've seen before (I've got a lot to learn :D ).
What's the background and history?

Good morning guys a little update on my Monty tractor this tractor started out life as a Ransomes MG6 ITC and was used by the metropolatine water board in London and was a Lagoon scraper for removing the crust build up on sewege filter beds

There was a second tractor followed this one which had a dumper skip on the front at some point the scraper was removed from monty I think in the workshops of the waterboard and the front engine was removed and a hydraulic ram with blade fitted the engine was replaced with a Briggs and Stratton engine off 16 hp flat twin with belt driven hydraulic pump at the rear and three  point linkage frame cat 2 lift arms It has electric start amp meter hour meter and fuel cut off device too

The brake arms were also modified and a hand clutch lever fitted too.

This tractor in its present form is a one off there isnt another one like it

IF you are wondering how the engine drives from under the seat to the front if you look closely you will see a enclosed shaft which runs the full length and has twin v belt drive pullies at each end an amazing conversion and a handy workhorse
