Are those considered a tractor or a Garden Tractor?
I've always wanted one of those.I used to mow with one years and years ago.One of my relatives has one that he uses as a fire wood log skidder and snow plow and a mower and plows his garden with it twice a year.
It has broken down on him quite a few times.He's burnt up Several clutch rebuilds,Snapped the input shaft on the front tranny a couple times,Input shaft bearing got wallered out last time and he had to rebuild the whole tranny.Engine was rebuilt once back in the 90s and replaced with a new k341 short block recently.His looks identical to yours with the dual trannys.He has a 3 point on his and he made a skidding boom for it.
He's an older fella in his late 70s and my uncle does all the maintenance and repairs on it.My uncle says he's tired of fixing it because it's to light duty for what he uses it for.And keeps hinting for him to get something a bit heavier built (like an old Ford 8n with sherman 2 speed diff) if he wants to skid logs.Maybe he's just tired of fixing it lol.
Is skidding logs roughly 12-20" by 30' long hurting it?Is that to much for the clutch and tranny to handle?Are they a Tractor similar to a Farmall Cub or just a large Garden Tractor?
