Congrats OB,nice machine

Thanks for the great post on the history of your tractor and how it came to be what it is today - if it could talk I'll bet there would be a few "that's too heavy but I'll lift it anyway" stories that would make for interesting listening.

First off, a big thanks to everyone that voted for the 1886.  In truth, it is as much, if not more, a vote for Ben's expertise and hard work as it is for just my owning it.

As a matter of fact, on the way back to the Home Port I stopped at Worchester's (the original owners) to show them all of the work that had been done to it.

 

One of the things that I mentioned was the bent forks. One of the brothers chuckled and said that they had to have the forks straightened a couple of times because they routinely lifted WAY more than the 750# that the mast was rated for.
