Bought three of these tractors this summer. Rebuilt one and took some little parts from another to do that. 3rd tractor was missing engine and things from get-go. Wondering if I should build another one out of the two left, or should I try to make an articulating one?? Always thought that would be neat, but now sure I can design the controls needed to run both rears together. I'm not the best planner/fabricator. I've seen many BIG tractors in past that just kinda hooked up a rear tractor with front off to the rear of another one with NO front wheels and kinda hanging out there. Not sure I like that look, seems less strong for sure. OR, how about a side by side one.....Yeah, kinda like that idea. But then again, what to do with two inner rear wheels area?? One axle, with another just a big long axle shaft to other side? No other axle in that side? Two wide seating. One big long axle in front?? OR, two small pairs like a big one again? Only ONE steering wheel to one side, other not used?? Hmmm! Lots of ideas can pop up. I've been wanting to build a Model T or HOrseless Carriage look butt buggy for shows, this might make a drive train for that instead of making a tractor at all. Thinking too much about it.....now my Head Hurts!
What to do with extra 1622's?

Still buying tractors? Thought you were getting out of the hobby?
Anyway, still interested in what you come up with.

Another option, sell the 2 remaining and let someone else build one out of them?
