I was able to complete the trip and pick up the 2 Wards tractors that were in the trade with Matt in north TX. The 12Hydro seems to be very nice, I will try to get it started in the next day or so. The 16hydro is kinda rough, but could be a nice tractor again....

Brian, that 12 looks great. It looks like it had owner(s) that took care of it. I really like the chrome hubcaps on all wheels. The 16 looks ok.

Brian, you might need to do a lot, the 16 hp can be a pita to get started, even when you have gone thru the entire electrical system.....trust me... no compresssion release.... tiny starter.....

Looks like a couple of fun projects. Must be nice to put them on pallets and use a fork lift to move around.

Very nice addition to your herd Brian, after some shots, good feed, antibiotics and maybe a little visit to your clinic, they should make some good stud tractors for your tractor breeding program. Nice, Shawn

I really like the looks of those Brian! Very nice score all the way around! The curved frames are somewhat unique...to me at least. The hub caps are nice too! Keep us posted on your progress!
