A while back and did an update on my 1107 with modified briggs 7hp. I been wanting to post about this but kept forgeting. During our july tractor show I decided to see what the panzer could do. So I chained it to my friends john deere A (5500-6000 pounds). He put the A in neutral and I tryed moving it in 3rd and broke traction right away. So I then put it in first and finally grabbed traction and moved the john deere about 40ft before I broke traction again and couldnt regain it. But never ran out of power. The panzer is stock wieght (700lbs + my 300lbs). It has ag tires and thats it. I was really surprised it even moved the A

I'm not surprised that you had enough HP to move it. Traction and gearing are what makes tractors work. It doesn't take much HP to move something like a JD A slowly on flat gound. If you wanted to pull it up hill at any sort of speed then it's a different story.

Surprising what a Panzer can do !!!  I had been storing my Panzer at my dads, hadn't used it in quite a while, the time came to clean the property , I had been using a Murray beater we had and was trying to pull a Bolens out of the brush when I blew the rear end in it,,the  next day I fired up my Panzer,,,hooked a chain to the Murray, and after a few yanks started to pull it from around the back of the  garage to the front to scrap it, I really never looked back, and much to my surprise I was still hooked to the Bolens  also, both rear ends locked up and the Bolens missing a front tire, was about a 200 foot pull, and a good laugh !!!
