FootDraggin' Fun

Recommended Posts

MPH
Warmed up to zero today, done having the van in my tractor shop, needed a new project so I got the LL out and had a little fun. fishin' for hiden tractor.

got one, though far from a 'live' one

Lifted front end up with the blade hitch. The older FDT was glad to help this younger RBT.

pulled it backwards to the shop door, then pushed it in, boy, that was easy

However, it seems too me one of you RBT lovers coulda told me you need to potty train these things. Being the understand sort of guy I am I didn't beat it though, just considered how intimidated it must have felt being in the shop of 3 fine FDT and a PowerMax 4040

After I wiped up the mess i went out and did some Footdragging of the Sam MaGee trail. Been walking it at least a mile a day, sometimes 2. gotta clear the head now and then.

Way i see it Greg, the powerMax tractors are above this FDT versas RBT thing, thier in a class of own.:) Elon, can I keep it now? I had a plan.

Kept the good stuff, got rid of the rest

You see, last April Kirk was kind enough to spend his time sending me these 3 boxes, wouldn't be right not to use them.

Understand the contents of those boxes goes in this mess. Hmm, never seen one of these before.

See it gonna cost me another sweat shirt though

Paul, I don't know if the only OEM light on the rt side works or not yet, don't know if the electric lift works either, battery box is such a mess from having a battery frooze up in it when I got it I haveto clean it up a bit first. I like my trail a lot, esp nice to walk it at nite with a headlamp on, just flat peaceful. Use a piece of 30 x30 inch 1in rock screen to drag the trail with, borrow it off the burn barrel. Dave,it seems to be feeling more at home now. it even quit spotting my new floor:) Sam, somethings just take an extra step to make right:D

Marty, I don't quite get the same answer when I look over the situation. Looks to me like the best tractors have to be numbered starting with a 7. Simp 700, 7000, 7100. All others are just something in between the good ones.

You had to do that.... After my kid but Running boards on the B-112 it just upset the cosmic balance of the universe. If you wouldnt have balance things out by putting toe plates on a RBT the universe might have imploded or unraveled;):D

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
