This week I put the tractors iinto their winter storage. I've had some of them in and out of the garage all summer as I worked on them, but it's tjme to make room for the truck in the garage.That way I don't have to clean the snow off it when I go out in the morning.IMGP7067.JPG IMGP7069.JPG IMGP7074.JPG

nice Speedexs

 

Did you fabricate the narrow steer on the one tractor? I am curious how it was done.

Which one gets the "hook" hanging from the ceiling joist?  Nice arrangement.  I want to put a loft across the back of my machine shed for smaller stuff. 12' wide and about 6' deep would be great.

They look so cosy there, all huddled together for warmth. Before you know it you will be getting them out again for another season.

Like the lights in fender one. 1630 with your mods or factory? Looks like plenty big engine in it, is it really bigger than 16?  If you put lights in, what were they? Looks like they took up whole area there, not just part of it and are not metal backed, but plastic?

Thanks for the comments fellows. As for the lights in the fenders, I raised the fenders a couple of inches so they would fit.I glued a metal bracket to the fender using polyurathane glue and  mounted the lights on it. The lights do have a plastic boby and came from Princess Auto (like your Harbour Freight).  The front end is a design I came up with to fit a Speedex frame.One of these days I'll post some close up pictures of it if anyone is interested. As for the engine it is a 10 hp B&S.

The tractor started life as an S24 round hood but was missing hood, fenders etc, so I started using parts I was able to find. The rowcrop front was an after thought.
