That's quite a machine. Can't say as I've ever seen another like it. Really looking forward to the updates.

here's some more pics of the teardown. removing the transmission threw me for a loop as it was using metric. everything came apart without a fight, lots of oil and grease from the last owners. the front wheels have nice bearings in them, nice eh. :thumb:

I'm a big hydro fan, but I've never seen a hydro drive setup like that before! Very neat machine, and I will follow this project!

Thanks for the welcome. I finished pulling it and apart cleaned the frame a little. bolts hold the wheels on kinda like a VW the brakes use a single shoe. Im not sure if ill remove anything else. not easy to work with the frame is still around 200lbs bear.

In the manual section here, is one for that tractor. Should help you get it back together. I also have another sales flyer here that shows all the cool stuff one could have bought when it was new. Ill get around to uploading it sometime.

thought that it was a panzer. I have never seen one in person but have checked them on this site. I often day dreamed about the one in the GT classifieds. Please before you roll you're eyes - I am very new to this and am far from a Jedi.
