Gents,

 

In researching something (I don't remember now what I was looking for), I came across this u tube of a two wheel tractor conversion to a 4 wheel unit.  I'm guessing the u tube might be Russian due to the alphabet, but am not certain.  In the u tube, the person has a conversion that he quickly adds to his two wheel tractor that has a dump box, plus allows him to ride the now articulated tractor.  The conversion is quick, either to 4 or two wheel, as he still uses the two wheel configuration for other farming operations.  There are quite a few u tubes by this guy, and it looks like the two wheel tractor may have started out as a rototiller.  On one he even adds a gear box and a pto drive out of it.  Very interesting, very ingenious.  Thought others here might enjoy this as much as I have.  It is a reminder for us, that others around the world don't have it quite as good as we do.

Enjoy!

Youtube doesn't work for my Vista computor. Is he just putting a cart behind a walk behind tractor? Look at the accessories for a Bolens or Simplicity walk behind from the 50s and you will see sulkies, carts, and rollers that you could ride. Good Luck, Rick

The ingenuity that is shown in other countries in running vintage equipment is amazing.

Necessity certainly is the mother of invention.  It seems there is a lot of creativity in eastern Europe and other countries that for whatever reason cant run out and pickup a new compact diesel or fancy GT.  They certainly make what they have do things most of us wouldn't even attempt.

 

Europe seems to have the some of the coolest 2 wheelers made, Some of the old German and Swiss machines are amazing, features just like a farm tractor only with 2 wheels.

Have seen video of Russian 2 wheel tractors pulling a 2 wheel trailer full of produce down the shoulder of a highway. Looked like about 1000 lbs of vegies going to market, trucking right along. In the US some one would hit you and the lawyers would take every thing you could ever earn for life. That's if you didn't go to jail first.     Don

Here is another utube, but this one made me laugh!  Not sure what the purpose of this "custom" sulkey was!  The driver is most certainly "stylin'".

No that's a picture of a 49 standard twin with its factory sulky.

This was at Jacktown Pa show a few years ago , don't know if it was homemade or not . Looks like it wouldn't be easy to go back to a 2 wheel tractor , thought it was pretty neat

They can't run out and buy new stuff because 1) it doesn't exist in their countries and 2) even if it did, they have no money to buy it with.
