Default 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

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.
