This is not a smart aleck comment in any way. These tractors were known as widow makers because of their ability to flip over backwards. .



That was one reason for this rear fender design.It was supposed to stop they from going up and over backwards.They also built tool boxes into the lower rear of each fender as well.

They don't push very well then do they!


No they don't...but they pull like the dickens!!! MH81 used his Dad's to help the pulling crew set up their sled one year for our clubs tractor pull. He walked it out the gate several times before they stopped him. They figured they had it set up pretty good after that, but no one else could move it more than 10 feet in that weight class LOL!
