I'm pretty sure it's a full 10hp TRA10D.
George, the Hog did superb! It was trucking right along!
Casey, you need LOTS more weight on the Cat, as you well know. And what's with the Case going so slow? Looks like you had the plow on the Case set with the point too low in front.
Grand, that Bolens did right good as well!
Than ks for the video. I'll watch it several times I'm sure.

Yes it is the TRA-10D in the Hog. Casey's problem with the Case is the throttle linkage needs setup and it isn't putting enough spring tension on the governor to put it full throttle. It was only running about 1/4 throttle. I don't know why the plow was angled so much as you would of though it would have cut in at the angle it is at.

With parts not being available for the Bush Hog which means limited use, I think I may be restoring it before long. The motor is starting to blow oil smoke when you rev it or it goes under load. I will dig in to it some more at some point in time. I did hook up the mower deck today and tried mowing with it, deck doesn't sound too bad. The blades need sharpened and I think the pto belt needs tightened as I think it was slipping. Wasn't the best cut job LOL.

Alan had one with George coming up on the Bush Hog and me coming up on the Case 444, figured that counted and then the group shot lol. Also, there was a picture with me, George, and my Dad around the Case 444 with the hood up.

As for the E20 I am pleased with it, and wont hesitate to repaint it this summer.

Ya Dan, the 444 was struggling and while we were messing with the throttle after that pass and the plow more, I said, "Screw it, I'm going to go get the CATERPILLAR." Once the swap was made my fun-meter went up and I had a great time. I enjoyed the plowing and meeting the people I been talking to on here for the last 4 months. Great group of guys.

Had Y'All in my thoughts as I was at work drilling holes.
I know the weather was good for you, first day I've been able to take the bike to work.
Great vid george! I hate to say it, but it lookes like the two horsepower walk behind had the easiest time cutting the ground that day. lol
