After waiting for several months, my new Chinese walk behind is here. I will post pictures when my camera returns, its on loan for a few days. This thing is a tank. Weights 661 lbs. The engine is a 10 hp diesel all cast iron, 2000 max rpm, water hopper cooled, with a crank start. Has locked rearend, with steering clutches. 6 speeds forward, and 2 reverse.
My 2 wheel tractor experience is limited to David Bradly, Bolens, and Simplicity. I was not prepared for this. It is big, heavy, and has more power then a Draft Mule.
The only implements I have for it is a turning plow and a sulky trailer I made out of a yard trailer. As for other implements have to decide, either have them shipped from China or make my own. Been using it just about every day hauling stuff around the farm, and just running up and down the road.
If you like walk behind tractors you will love this thing. Like I said as soon as I can I will post some pictures of it.

Cool. The engine sounds similar to the Changfa water cooled diesels I have seen on homemade gen sets. They are really heavy and you have to keep adding water as it steams off. That would be a serious walk behind!

Brian,

It is a Changfa, they are built like the old stationary engines. I have only added water one time, and I run it at least an hour a day. I will get pictures up as soon as I get my camera back.

Those are a nice engine. I can't remember the story behind the design but they are a reliable and long lived engine. I learned a bit about them when I was considering building my own diesel gen. set. I felt the Lister clones were a wee bit too big for me to deal with so the Changfa's were the alternative. The one I was looking at was 12 HP and weighed about 300lbs. They use them in China in all kinds of small engine applications. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures. That will be a serious beast of a walk behind.

I like the crank start a lot. It is easy to use, just hold the compression release while spinning it up, release the compression, and it will fire right up.
