I have a Tri-Trac that my grandfather bought around 1960 from the org. owner , I don't remember him using it , I was too young , but was always kept in his barn with all sorts to things piled on it . Still have the attachments that he got with it and the manuals , moldboard plow , disc , middle buster , sickle bar , 2-row planter and cultivators. When I figure out how to upload those manuals I will.

Once you have them scanned you can put all the pages into a microsoft word document then download this free PDF maker. This is how I upload all my manuals here.

Follow the instructions on the web page :thumbs:

I've been using OpenOffice.org for several years, It seems to work very well. You can request a scan directly & has an "export as PDF" in it just like M$Office. (Except it's free) Look for the older versions, like 3.1, the last version I uninstalled because it was a little glitchy (or they improved it & I wasn't smart 'nuff to run it)

They sure are different , do you use it or is it just for show? When I got mine from my Grandfather he had the dirt plow on but my garden isn't big enough to use it . I put the sickle bar on but the grass I tried to cut wasn't tall enough or too fine cut well. kind of just bent it over.

This ones just for show. The most work it has done since I re-fabbricobbled it - is to run it in a few parades. Thanx everyone for the kind words!

It is a great looking tractor, you should be proud. I have a video from one of the shows a guy had a Tri Trac and plowed with it. It was great seeing something different from the ordinary plowing. Thanks for posting the pic Gtractor.
