Well after YEARS of setting up and giving shelter to mice rats and snakes and God knows what else...I fired up Frankin Tractor today and believe it or not the old rotted Hydro lines don't leak a drop..although I will change them soon because they are scary looking..I tested out the Backhoe and FEL,and then the Hi-Lo Hyro drive......it all works!!!..I need to get the electrical rewired and new batteries and a seat...and it will be digging a hole somewhere soon I hope!

 This tractor has parts off of just about anything you can think of...LOL,and is a long way from purdy..but so far it has Patina!IMG_20150331_140152_zpsuv6hmtnb.jpgIMG_20150331_140305_zpsmo9azhmw.jpgIMG_20150331_140320_zpsujnxnupp.jpgIMG_20150331_140347_zpsotaa915d.jpgIMG_20150331_140333_zpslyywqhgv.jpg

I may have to make that 2 hour drive and take the pictures. He's teased us long enough but today is bee hive splitting day and possible tomorrow.

Why? Do you have a bunch of stickers to remove?

I am happiest with my home brew, liquid wrench, PB blaster, or aero kroil.



David, we will have to discuss point awarded for no pics. :D

That looks pretty complicated! Who operates it; you or the little woman?

 

What did a Franklin start life as? The colors look like Case.
