I just uploaded 39 pics to the Gallery here. Looking like a better turnout so far! Found 2 tractors that I thought you folks would enjoy in this thread. One is for GLGrumpy. and here it is. An MM replica.

And now for you crawler fans! A Cat D 1/8. When I walked up and was looking, I noticed the brand and size of the track on it. So I took that pic first before it moved.

This thing is sweet! I got to drive it and I was impressed. The drive is very smooth, just ease the levers forward and it crawls along slower than a snail. The tracks are from a demolition buggy. The drive motors are from a Dixon Zero-Turn. Drive sprockets were machined by students at a local Vo-Tech. The engine is a 2 cylinder Kubota from a Zero-Turn. It is awesome!

Those are a couple of really neat machines. Would have replied earlier but I couldn't wait to check out the gallery. Lot of great photos and thank you for posting them.

I'll add more pics tomorrow when I get home. There are a bunch more GT's scattered about the show. Just wanted to share these two here as they are special.

Wow! SO Neat!  Wish I could fab that curvy stuff OR at least know someone who would DO such forming.  My local weld/fab shop can't do that nice of work.  I've always wondered if one sits down with paper to figure scale sizes for parts or just kinda wings it and thinks; "that looks good" as they build this stuff?  As the one sign says on cost..."You can't afford it?"   Yep, believe that!  I need plans when I make stuff, not so good at coming up with the ideas myself.

I did not talk to him at length, Gary, but he only lives 3/4 mile away! I can get info if you want. The frame, engine, hood and rear axle are all from a Cub Cadet. He just added in what he thought would look right for an MM.

 

 

I'm uploading more pics to the Gallery. Think another 32. Scroll down to the barge pic and go from there.

I noticed the MM was propane, did it run on it?

I wondered that too Jimmy G.  But if you look close you can see the gasoline filler neck on the [former] propane tank.

 

My brother has a kit to run Kohler singles on propane.  They'd be ideal for this G.

I was thinking it could have been a charge port, I see a carburetor but no regulator, just didn't understand the two cutoff valves on tank, return line maybe?

Always cool to see a GPW/MB (couldn't see if it had 2 or 4 hood latches) that 37 ford is sweet, you could shave in that reflection.

It's a really a gas tank.

Still looks cool up there!
