Just found this on YouTube. Interesting approach to a four wheel Standard Twin powered Tractor.

Looks like they used the attachment pulley shaft with maybe a chain to drive the trans on the other frame.

Nice looking mod tractor.
Interesting how they did the shifting, thought they would've tried to make it less of a reach, but that's the only part that looked awkward.

:thumbs:

Glad your shared the pics,

Pretty darn cool lookin.I would have to make a hood,grill and dash for it and paint it RED.There's Enough of those Green painted things around. :rolling:

 

Does look like a Mini version of a JD A or a Farmall Super C with that long Front end.It has to have a Narrow front end put on it either way.

Very neat!

 

I have to say something, though.  I can't believe the kid couldn't run something that fascinating and unusual without digging out his cell to send a text.

The power takeoff on the Standard Twin is attached to another transmission.

I can't help but wonder why he doesn't just use the second transmission for shifting ?

The shifter handle for that transmission is within easy reach right in front of him.

Not Sure,

 

Maybe the second trans is only used as a Hi / Lo setup.  I hadn't thought of that until you said it, but that opens up some interesting gear options with 2 trannys.

 

I agree with you though.  I would try to run that chain drive as slow as possible and use the gearing in the lower gearbox.

It seams to me that with the second transmission set up like it is the front two speed transmission could be used as the " high & low " and that would then leave the 3-speed transmission for driving the tractor.
