Got myself a Struck!

Recommended Posts

I have been after this thing for MONTHS. Finally got the cash together, tracked the guy down, and brought it home! Tracks are in great shape, chain seems decent, sprockets aren't overly worn, but there is no engine and its been hacked up a bit. MORE than savable in my opinion.It also has a Jacobsen hydraulic lift in it. It was mounted and running off the engine to control the plow at one point. Cleaned up and remounted properly it would be a cool little attachment to have.I got a sweet low hours 8hp Kohler with it that is gear start and has a stator. I think it would fit perfectly and have enough power to run the lift as well. Going to need a LOT of welding and grinding, a few pulleys, engine cover, maybe some lights, etc. Going to be a sweet build!!

I had one, it was fun to play with. Only thing I didn't like was one track of the other would come off in a turn on grass. Didn't seem to have that trouble in bare dirt.

Would surprisingly push quite a pile of loose dirt up.

You will have fun with itdOd

Mark,

I have also kind of wanted one for a long time, although I really have no use for one. They look like they would be so much fun! I saw one a few years ago at the Baraboo Wisconsin tractor show with a moldboard plow mounted on the back. I bet plowing with it would be great! Good luck with yours, please post pics as you work on it!

Steve

I went over to my friend house and the guy is a hoarder. HE buys EVERYTHING. He has 2 crawlers, 1 struck and one mighty mouse plus a Struck tractor. SO, bugged him to look through his manuals. BAM! A whole folder of them. He sold me a few duplicates that he has.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
