Cool Tractor and Hydro setup! I just joined as well and noticed how close looking to my PA Panzer 1107 this looks. BTW, I am combining the 1107 and an older T70b into one tractor and it's getting all the bodywork from the t70b. So if you need a seat or any of the 1107 body panels, I'm your guy. That is.. if there's a way to get the stuff from here in western PA. Probably should start a new thread on my build. Just getting started.

Will do all those things. As for the poster - asked about paint color. I was just visiting the same topic myself. Check this page out for paint color tips.

They're supposed to be the first hydro garden tractor ever built.They were built by Virginia Metal Crafters in Waynesboro VA near me.I have a pretty nice 1012 with snowblower,front blade and mower deck,have a few spare parts on a parts machine too.

I'd love to have a snowblower mounted on the front of my 1107. However, I have zero experience with tractor mounted snowblowers and wouldn't want to start mounting one from scratch. I'll do a lot of things from scratch, but that's one I don't think I'm going to try.

Panzer made some large tractors as well. The 4WD units are very cool!

I saw the 4WD on video long ago, but find no info on them. It looked OEM, but possibly a custom creation???

Yeah, I think a 4wd Panzer would be a custom creation. That would be a big deal if there was any factory ones out there. Thought about doing 4wd on mine, but now to get a mower, plow, or whatever to work with it would be almost impossible. I was going to rig up a heavy atv front, but then I'd have no room for anything else underneath the frame, and that's where all the implement and mower stuff goes. Plus, keeping it good looking would be a challenge.
