Parts tractors are handy

Recommended Posts

GrinchyOne's post about his parts tractor got me thinking about last Saturday and how useful parts tractors are. Half way thru a much needed lawn mowing my trusty HB-112 slowed down and nearly stopped. A quick look at the drive belt told me that it was nearly gone and SLI was closed for the day. I went looking for a deck to hang on my LL-101 hydro project tractor. I had never tried mowing with it, and wanted to try. I stumbled on a 42" deck that I got with a 3314 parts tractor. The deck and belt fit right on and I finished the mowing job. The foot controlled Sundstrand is a bit touchy, but the cone clutch worked great.

No relaxing on that one, Wayne. I hang on with both hands and both feet. Once in a while, I need one of those NASCAR seats with a head restraint. For those not around during my struggles to make this project work, the Sundstrand is controlled by a foot pedal attached to the cross shaft in the right side of the picture. It's not the best idea that I ever had, but it works. This picture is from the "trial and error" part of the process.

Sadly, the good old foot draggers just don't show up at sales and auctions like they used to. That's how I got some of my parts machines. The high price of scrap does not help the situation. It is our duty to save all of them that we can.

Brenda, AND: You do know that I have more than one mowing tractor.:D:D That was an excuse to hang a deck on my Hydro LL project. After all, I did put a years work in that thing, and should try to use it for something.dOd

      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!😁
