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
