My sister in coming up from Texas in a couple weeks I'll try to get her to take and post some pictures.The Hines were built in Rocky Mount NC in the early 80's,I have 3 of them use one for cultivating,has midmount and rear Cat 0 3pt,hydraulics and hydrostatic drive about the best culitvating tractor I've found and I've used about all of them at one time or another.Have managed to find several plows,cultivators,tool bars and decks for them.Powered by a Kohler single cylinder 16HP engine.The engine and drive is exactly like my Ford LGT 16 then a set of chains drive the large wheels off the Peerless rear axles.

I was hoping you had something to upload. You have my interest in these tractors. I'm glad you have found some implements for them.

John Blue and Tuff-Bilt made similar tractors and Tuff-Bilt still builds one located in Alabama.I've been around all three and think the Hines has the best design for cultivating.There is a guy near me that has a completely restored John Blue for sale for $10,000 a little salty for me but it is a rare tractor in excellent condition.Think I have around $2500 in all three tractors and about a dozen pieces of equipment.The one I use has less then 300 hrs on it and almost all that was mowing grass.

Daniel you need to take a ride over my way sometime and spend a day or so looking.I64 all the way from KY to Charlottesville,I'm about 10 miles North of Charlottesville just off US 29.Lots to see 3 of us serious collectors within about 4 miles of me.Between the 3 of us you'll have over 400 tractors to look at.Most all of the different brands.Lots of Brinly and other small equipment.Then there are the steel wheel walkbehind tractors........

There was a John Blue at the a plow day I went to last year. It was real neat. It had a Cub motor in it. Like out of a Cub low boy. The right front tire was offset and the plow ran directly in front of the rear tire. The gentleman that had it said he had 2 or 3 others.

Interesting I've never seen one with a plow on it,can't see why he'd be running the front wheel in plowed ground and not in the furrow.The Hines has a 3pt on the rear also and thats where the plow hooks up.The plow is a Cat 0 but has a longer beam to fit the hitch and get out from underneath the tractor.

The front wheel runs in the previous furrow, and the rear runs in the furrow that is being made.

If you look close you will see that the front wheel runs in the previous farrow and the rear wheel runs in the new farrow.
