I was watching the show 'American Pickers" last night, and in the middle of the show they came up on a guy in TN. he had a narrow front end tractor similar to a Bantam 8000. He was moving on the back of a golf cart. Can you tell me what Brand it is?

Here's the link, forward it to 26:00 exactly to see the tractor...
BTW, you'll have to endure 1 minute of commercials..

I have only been able to catch a couple of episodes of the show but in one I saw 2 Bolens and the other a guy was driving a big wheel Case. Glad the pickers aren't up on GTs!

I saw it...I even paused the show on that frame to see if I could figure it out LOL! Thanks for asking the question TD&H. I'd like to welcome you to GTTalk and to say thanks for answering the question for us Bantam Chic! BTW, It would be nice if you could head on over to the Member introductions forum and let us know a little about what you have and maybe share some more pics of your stuff! That's a very nice unit in the picture there!

The Pickers aren't too excited about GTs, and I think that is a bonus for us guys, as well, we know they aren't worth as much to us as a retailer lol.

Also, thanks for clearing that up Bantam Chic, now we know. Also, welcome to the forum.

Welcome Bantam Chic and transammike.
I don't think I have ever seen one of those tractors before.
