Here is a Massey 10 that I built. I used 6.70x15 rear tires. The inner rims are from a Dodge caravan and the outer ones are from a VW I think. The front tires are 6x12 ags. For the front hubs I found an old Sears tranny that had 1 inch shafts with a keyway and removed those hubs. I then put in 1 inch to 3/4 inch reducer bushings in the hubs so they would work on the Massey 3/4 spindles.
I like the looks of these old Massey tractors and the fact that they are styled just like the Massey farm tractors built at that time.

Wonderful looking tractor. I didn't notice, till you mentioned it, but I recognize the Sears spindles now. That was a great idea! :good_job:

Looks mean... like bad... in the good way. Great job.

Who makes the 6.70's, where from, and how much???

I know they're hard to find.
That's the size I need for my David Bradley.

Justwalt, These are Goodyear 6.70x15 tires. I buy them from our local tire dealer who does a lot of ag tires. The last pair of these I bought was 2 years ago at their spring farm tire sale and they ran me $70.00 each. I haven't priced them latley.

Tractor Mike: I realize this thread is almost a year old. But this is one cool tractor!
I do have a question, what is the ground clearance on this machine?
One short coming I see with most garden tractors is ground clearance. I think this is just what I pictured in my head, for garden cultivation. I'm planning to plant an acre or so of sweetcorn.
Running single rear wheels, not duals.
