thanks for sharing ,

I really like the coal truck,my grandfather used to be in the coal/ oil business. There was a pic of my mother and aunt driving one similar around the coal yard back when they were barely old enough to drive. most of the men were in WWII, so the girls ( all 6 of them,) had to help grandpa run the business.

 Does the waterloo boy burn kerosene or can it burn gasoline too.  Kerosene is expensive now compared to back then when the tractor was made ? Just wondering.  

 And some people are very inventive when it comes to making a home made tractor as seen in the Jon Dear.

Thanks for the pictures,  Noel

I like Jon Dear.  I would like to see it work. 

 

I also always wanted to run a half track tractor.  That's one thing I never see in my area, so rich otherwise for almost anything tractor!

Half track would be neat too. Some you tube videos on that. Great traction. Noel

I gotta say, that "John Dear" is just about the ugliest GT(?) that I've ever seen :rolling:

 

Those ARPS half tracks are interesting.  It seems like you see them mostly on the Ford N series, but ARPS did make them for most, if not all, of the major brands.   I have seen pics of them on IH, AC, Moline, Deere, etc.

 

I've always thought a setup like that on a GT would be nice.

I am not sure.  It may burn one or both.  It was on a trailer & the owner was off enjoying the show.
