Update On Front Mount 4 WD Articulated Tractor
I've put more than 4,500 hours on it and I'm not afraid to go anywhere with it. The tractor's real strength is the ideal weight distribution for front or back attachments. As a result, there's no need for calcium in the tires, no need for wheel weights, and no need for removable weights either front or back.
I recently built a larger model that's powered by a 90 hp Deere diesel engine and rides on big 14.9 by 24 tires. Otherwise, it has all the features of the original model and works fine. However, I've found that the 90 hp model is too big to maneuver easily in the woods. I'm still partial to the original one because of its size, versatility, and maneuverability. I'd like to build more of the original models. They would be powered by a diesel engine and sell for $60,000 to $70,000.
