Here's a video of a homemade tractor a friend of mine is building. He literally started with just a 3 cylinder diesel Kabota engine from a welder and stack of steel. It's 2 speed hydraulic drive. He even made the transmission for it. It will basically be a muscled up lawnmower to use around his machine shop and home. Pretty cool.

I don't see a video, but I do see a link to post a new post on a neat forum that's out there on the web.  We all ought to join.

I can't get any respect anywhere.  I've been called fat, deaf, blind, stupid, and a bunch of other unrepeatable gibberish, but I've never been told that my ears were too long.

I've got a fairly good imagination and if I concentrate real hard and squint my eyes,  I can almost see it.

The description sounds like it is going to be  one tough tractor.

I never called you stupid. In print. Cross eyed and buck toothed, yes; I'll admit to those too.

Looking forward to the video as soon as Ben puts it back.

Thanks for reminding me on the buck toothed part.  I forgot you had noticed that. 

 

But at least being buck toothed is better than having no teeth.  You wife told me that you were getting tired of jello, and she was frustrated that she couldn't fix steak. 

 

I was going to put the video back tonight, but since you want to act like this, I guess I'll have to put it off for a day.

Oh that's "biker" on MTF, I have been watching his build thread. I love how he milled all his own gear boxes & many parts.. 

 

Good to hear his implant is in and he's recovery and can start to hear now in his one ear.
