It looks like a lot of time and elbow grease went in to this project. I would enjoy more pics if you have them. Thanks for sharing. Charles

   Very nice, what did you use for paint ?  looks a little duller than what I used.  I just completed a full resto on my fathers b-10 this spring.  ehat are you going to do about the seat ?  there are some great reproductions avail on e-bay for around $100.

I'm going to talk to a guy tomorrow about doing the seat . The color is called new equipment yellow it's got a good shine to it in the sun . All the black you see on the rear end and bgb is undercoating I spent 3 hours scraping it off the rear end . And I wanted to say thank you to zippo for all his help in this restore I met a lot of nice people that are now my friends doing this it was a lot of work but it was a labor of love and would do it again

Nice job on the Big Ten. I use mine quite a bit all year. I just spread 5 small dump truck loads of gravel on my parents driveway and had fun doing it. They are great tractors and it was well worth taking the time to restore your machine.

I used it last winter pushing snow and it pushed more snow then I thought it would. I've got a mid mount grader blade that I can't wait to try out this weekend . I've only owned it for a year now but it's built like a tank

It also has good traction to hang upside down!

   Nice !!  that does have a much different look in the sun.  Am I missing something with zippo varga ?  or is he a friend ?  I use my big ten daily , it is my go to machine.  dad loves his b-10.  we have had 5 or 6 over the years and they are great machines.  if you decide you don't like that grader blade I thin I may have room for it here :thumbs: I have been on the lookout for one for  awhile now.

Zippo vargo had a lot of videos on simplicitys on you tube I got the pleasure of meeting him and he has helped me out in finding parts that I needed and we have become good friends. And the grader blade I'll be keeping I have about 300 miles in going to get it . I like that grill on the front . And KennyP not sure why that pic loaded upside down

    I have two of those front bumper/grill's, I saw a bush hog with something similar and just had to have it then of course when I made mine dad just had to have one for his.  not really that hard to make if you can weld it just takes a bit of fiddling so it can be hooked to the front where the snowblower hooks to, then you just use the same pins as the deck/plow/blower use and you are good to go.

Your tractor looks great. Would you ever consider selling one of those bumpers?

I never gave it much thought, I make other repro parts and sell them. The trouble would be the shipping, they are pretty heavy. You have a design in mind?
