Daniel, keep it in here. I may hook up the tiller to the Ford and enter it. If I had more time to 'play' with the tractors right now, I could enter 3 different ones, well 4 since I got the JD.:bigrofl:

I'll nominate my Boom Pole.

This was a build from necessity that kinda turned into a fun project.
I had been laying parts aside for several months, thinking it would be a handy tool. At the time, my rotator cuff was acting up again, and I didn't always have help to lift, move, etc. Kinda made for a challenge sometimes. After I bought my 3 point from member BHTS, I just had to have something more to put on it than a plow. I love this Sears Suburban 12 it's on too. We have kinda grown up together GT wise. Me learning how to keep it running & it teaching me I don't know everything yet.

I have used this to move my derelict Custom 6, implements, etc around the yard in an attempt to find better parking places. Has turned a lot of 2 man jobs into a "One man-One tractor" job. In other words, it has given me more seat time. :thumbs: The plans were scaled down from a full size tractor boom.

At the last show, there was a Sears guy there that asked me where I found it... He'd never seen one. Kinda made me feel good that he thought it was an OEM piece.

Here is a video of the unpainted, 7/8 done project.



And here are some pictures:

No sir. that FEL stays in, even though your a moderator your not allowed to withdraw it.
In anything that people vote on, you don't know what's going to happen till it's over.

as for everybody else nominate what you got, show it and tell us all about it.


Well, my talk of pulling it seemed to have awoken you guys! Now get to nominating. George, that goes for you too!

I have to decide what implement I own is my favorite first. And since I have yet to build my favorite... I will lose this month to Daniel anyway lol. Besides, I like making fun of your mullet. lol

Ok so is this feature tractor thing just for the 4 wheeled one? I've got a 2 wheeler thats a moutain of attaching and seems to be older than any tractor i've seen on here. I dont have any pictures just now but maybe i could get some this weekend, if theres any interest in big old hunks of iron.

Sorry, I didn't mean to leave out the odd numbers there. Heck, if you have a 5 wheeler, put it in... But I think we will have to draw the lines at zero and 9.
