This was from a couple weeks ago. I have way to much fun with this tractor.

I think i can i think i can..

 

Ha! I KNOW I can! It is more about traction than horsepower. Bolens tube frames are very heavy for their size, have a worm drive rear end and many models have a locking differential. My 1054 tube frame has a couple more horse power than Wilber's 850, but she rolls right along in 3rd gear, low range with a 10" plow.

Looks like fun Wilberj ! If we don't get any more rain between now and Saturday I hope to get out and do some plowing this weekend. The pictures above are from last spring.
