What Can I call this?

It's a Ford 125 with 700 series fenders and running boards (not installed yet), a 12HP kohler from a Case 222, and hood and steering gear parts from a 416H. It's still in the design stages, but will be done soon. We plan on using it to haul logs on our 50 acres up north. Won't be easy to tip with 50" width.

I guess whatever it is its creative. Is the engine supposed to sit on such an angle when its all done? If you don't mind my asking was there a serious mechanical problem with the Case 222 that led to you dismantling it? Looked way to nice to part out.

Yep, The seat is alittle high, but with the wide wheel rear tires, I don't think it'll be a problem. I don't have the mounts for the motor yet, I bought them from Joe's outdoor power, but havent received them yet. . Also, THe case was too ackward to use. It had a good motor and hydraulics, so I took them off. High is useless, and low range is too slow.

I got the motor installed the other day, and got the tractor running. THe hydrostatic pump is noisy, but it seems to pull pretty good. Just have to be careful with the foot control, as sometimes you keep going when you try to stop[:0]. Almost made it into the ditch that way. It's easier to work on than the a/c's basically because theres nothing to it. I'm happy with it though,

Call it "Russian Beardog" You know, the kinda dog that comes rushing around the house to "Bear" down on a cold biscuit... LOL Great job getting new life from parts.. BTW, Isn't that rear end a Hydrolic instead of a hydrostat ?
