Re: Bready 2 wheel garden tractor
That little beauty hiding in the corner is my 1924 Holt/Caterpillar 2 Ton. She is yelling at me to get her all pretty again!! I haven't touched it in a few years as a much needed divorce had to be taken care of. So she languished in storage for sometime. Now she's back home needing some love.
I am either the third or fourth owner. The family I got it from bought it in the late 30's. It was used to skid logs and sap buckets out of the woods in the upper peninsula of Michigan. The original motor threw a rod out the side of the block in the late 50's, so it was re-powered with a Ford flathead out of a farm truck. I started to change it over to a small block Chevy but, have since decided to rebuild the flathead and put it back. I found a lot of the original Cat pieces in the woods...all but the engine.
