My first FDT arrived in North Dakota

I've been waiting for months now but I was finally able to pick up by first fdt during my trip home this past week. It's a project that I can't wait to get my hands into. Thanks to Perry for setting me up with a great starter tractor, it was good seeing you again. What do you think of my tow rig? Granted the load was pretty light, but it pulled a lot better then expected.


I picked up the 2210 from Perry in Auburn Hills, then my dad's neighbor donated the lawn cart. The pin eyelet is broken so he didn't have a use for it anymore. The thing is mint otherwise. Josh, it was a pleasure meeting you and getting to see your collection. You're basement causes me a lot of jealousy. I can't wait to get the 2210 running to mount the cultivator to it.


At a quick glance it appears as though I'll be doing the steering upgrade to it and I'm planning on going through the electrical. It looks as though I'm going to have to put seals in the drive axle as well. Other then maintenance it's a pretty clean tractor mechanically. I'll be shopping for a rear lift tube if anyone has one laying around.

Looks good Craig. I also like your Jeep! Do you like it? I just got a 2011 and hope it turns out to be a good SUV! Jeep history the past few years has pretty much stunk but this new model is getting a lot of hype! Good luck with the restore and be sure to feed us lots of pics.

X2 Craig, I like the Jeep too. A friend of mine has the SRT-8. Me sees a Brinly plow hiding there. My crystal ball sees a Hydrolift in your future.:D:D Either that, or a front counter weight.

      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!😁
