My first "homemade" tractor

I thought i would share my first "homemade" tractor...
Tractor was built using a 102 cub cadet. engine is a LA International 1.5 to 2.5 HP. Uses a single v-belt with belt tensioner for clutch to drive a 90 degree gearbox which couples to cub cadet driveshaft. Front steel wheels are off john deer hay rake. Rear steel are from unknown implement. The whole setup works very well! I included the only picture i can find at the moment. I also included a link to a short video from youtube of the tractor running. I will post pics of my current Tractor build when i get a chance.
Thanks Caleb

Very cool, Caleb!

It sounds like an old Hit-n-miss engine in the video

What are you currently building? Details Please

Cool ride, like the colors too.

I was abandoned as an infant and raised by a family of opposums........does that explain things?

Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread

Re: My first "homemade" tractor

I really like your home made tractor.
I've seen other home made tractors using the old hit-miss engines but most of the time they have rubber tires on them.
The steel wheels fit in with the style of the tractor much better.
