I wonder if this was made as a custom pulling tractor ? With those brakes and the power plant .
It looks pretty cool overall though!

Hard to say its heavy.

remembering that there were a huge amount of machines home made after the world wars from model T and buick and other sorts into tractors of all sizes and descriptions & cheap bought kit sorts  too 

 

search net, midget tractor , mini tractor and such PDF files on how to make , i think in downloads or files whatever in GGT there are some files on making odd sorts of tractors

As someone that builds my own tractors, I'm always interested in other home built tractors from the past.

That looks like a well built tractor that someone put a lot of thought into it's design and function.

I see it has a Model-T Ford front axle that has been turned upside down to bring the axle higher than the spindles.

Like posted earlier, I too like this odd, stuff, and the more "gizmos" the better! I love old school, never seen before, way over built things! Is it the hunt, getting em running, or simply just having 1 of a kind? Im not really sure. But Im lovin it!:)

Oh, thank you Kenny, and you are welcome!!

Once things start to smooth out with all the bad things that are going on in life, ill definitely get going on the old bird.

On a more positive note, she IS in dry storage right now, not rusting away in a field like when I first met her.

Geez, almost sounds like a love novel huh? Lol

Couple more weeks, Im gonna oil her down, clean her up, change the fluids, and see what happens. With video!
