very nice to see some big iron show up. I sold all my twins about a yr ago. Still miss them. Yours looks to be an old one as i see no turning brakes, and it doesnt look like it has a governer. Oh duh, i see the date now above the picture.

Good post, 112patio. Welcome to the wheel two area.

The tractor in the picture is a product of the french peoples. Look close at the pic and i beleive you will see a two way plow peaking up behind it. Man i just love two wheeled tractors. There are the legs of man, the beast of burdon, in many parts of the world yet today. Heres a link to some more great overthere type tractors.

If you know german,this forum is a pretty active forum for single axle tractors. I don't post much there though, cause it is kinda hard when you don't know german , I just look at everyone's pictures. I wish I could have some of the ones they have over there.

Here is mine. A Troybuilt Horse with an 8 hp Kohler. I put some chains on it and a 80 lb weight. I was using it here for picking rocks. Works real good for that cause of the how slow first gear is. It doesn't have a very fast gear either but is faster than using a wheelbarrow. Although it would be easier to steer with a differential.

They normally have steering brakes and are balanced front to back.
Here are a few videos of them in action.

I couldn't find the one I was looking for. If I find it i'll post it. Pretty neat machines, I think.I haven't seen any models over here of that caliber.
