yes that one of those dream tractor you always wish to find close to home. Looks like a nice group of attachments, and he will probally have little trouble selling it.

I don't think the rear rims are right. Most R series tractors used 24 inch rears with a 4 spoke cast center.

I lusteth after that tractor.  I would venture to guess, though, that he has the value pegged fairly decently.  Having all the attachments would make me think that at least.

 

I don't think the rear rims are right. Most R series tractors used 24 inch rears with a 4 spoke cast center.

 

Those 4 spoke rims are distinctive.  That tire pattern on the tractor in the ad is very old, though, and unusual. 

 

I know a guy in my area who has one of these tractors with similar rims to the one in the ad.  His was bought new by his father in the 1930's or early 1940's I believe.  He had pictures showing those rims in place when he was a boy on it. 

 

Maybe it was an option or something dealers slapped on the tractors to make them shorter for a special application?

I know the N series used this style of rim but they didn't have the drop downs from the diff to the wheel. I was trying to remember how the cast hubs are fastened and it seems they were clamped with a split hub. It's hard to say about Shaw. Each tractor was built individually and they just used what they had. You could probably ordr anything you wanted.  I just don't ever remember seeing an R with these rims. Somebody (besides Miller tire) is selling new ones of that tire. I believe they are a military tread.

I have owned two R6 shaws that have had the 16 inch rear back rims. I have a few shaw brochers that show the 16 and 24 inch back wheels.
