Some big boys. Three 730s, two apparently originally employed in Argentina and one from the Midwest.





I'm standing there checking out the clearances and this farm kid wanders over - we both agree it'd be pretty exciting working one of these given the topography we've got around here. Be ready to bail...!



And an aggie ATV.

I think the previous owner of my John Deere really didn't want to lose the rest of the grill.

It is hard to believe anyone designed a tractor around the Fairbanks Morse. Our neighbors had them, And I still loved them.

Does this qualify as a tractor? It's the only one I own.

I think they do. . . especially since I couldn't make it around here without them. The old one is for hauling a trailer, these days. . . and the new one? Well. . .everytime I mow, I pretend I'm driving the Zamboni, makin' ice for the Olympics!

HA!

Yes they count. Could you use one to pull something, say your car, down the driveway or something?

My dad had an old rototiller for whivch the tines could be replaced by tractor wheels. He added a hand brake - a big stick on a swivel. One end of the stuck drug against the ground. He'd attach an old flatbed trailer he had and viola, it became our firewood tractor. That thing was bad ass with a 4 horse motor. It could pull 1-shitload (1 SL) of wood back to the splitting porch. It did not do hills well though.

YAY!

Yeah. . . I could pull my car down my 1/2 private road with the MonkeyWard but somebody'd have to be in the driver's seat of my car, puttin' on the brakes, cause that sucker doesn't like to stop with huge loads.

HA!

It works really well for hauling rocks and firewood. I wouldn't subject the new Husky to that kind of abuse, though. . . it's such a killer machine. . . so clean and well built. I've been having a blast mowing cool patterns into the lawn.

Funny thing, the GOOGLE EARTH shot of my place was taken while a professional mowing team was here. . . I wish they'd shoot it again right after I've done a cool pattern!

WEIRDO!
