Good Stuff  :thumbs:  

NOTHING beats taking a bunch of parts from different tractors, putting them together, getting it to work and look good at the same time.

Wow, fantastic video of Alice moving.
It changes direction well, and seems to be just what you were trying to build.

I'm very happy with everything about it, Alan. Waiting impatiently for the hood and fenders so I can see the finished look. The hydro is awesome, very quiet for a Ford unit. Lift works real nice. Foot pedal is very comfortable to operate. Seems to turn very nicely for a 48+" wheelbase (best I can tell it's right at 48.75"). I'll see what the radius is the next time I have it out. And this M18 fires up so easily. The stack is really quieter than I thought it would be. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

Attaboy Kenny!  Not gonna be long before completion now! :dancingbanana:  You know once she's finished there will be an empty spot in your fabricating heart, so.......what's next?   :smilewink:

Daniel, I'm trying to figure out something for the front. I have a PTO on it, so that opens many options up. Maybe a front mounted mower? Tiller? Snowblower? Separate hydraulics? Then there is always a push blade. I have 2 Char-Lynn hydraulic motors that I think came from a Case mower deck? So many options!! :wallbanging:

Here she is in full dress! Got the hood & fenders installed. Put the lights on and wired them in. Wired the PTO while I was at it. Think I'll swap seats with the FF20 as it is a lot better.

 

I made a 'story board' for the show (guess that's what you would call it.). The lower part is for pics.

And here she is!
