725 #1

Well here are some pics of the Detroit 725 that was picked up and delivered to me by club members JP and Clyde. I actually put it to hard work already. The engine did bog when the deck plugged up, but this one cuts nice also even though the blades are ground away from to many sharpenings. The engine got hot so there must be a nest in it which I had seen remnants of :(.

One thing that I always notice on the older foot draggers is the rear fenders. Look at the fenders on your new purchase compared to your other tractor. They are up where they are suppose to be, not sagging down toward the rear wheel. I have seen many pictures of tractors that have had a lot of time spent on restorations but the rear fenders are not bent back to where they should be so the tractor still looks old and tired. So to relate it to something that most of us men appreciate keep your fenders "Perky"
