There isn't a dedicated build thread on MTF, so here are some specs:
Engine: Kubota D640 17HP
Drivetrain: Hydraulic motor powering two 4 speed gearboxes, that connect to two differentials. This machine is now a 6x4 but started as 6x2.
Pumps: 0,39ci for auxiliary circuit (thumb and flail mower) and a 1.037 ci for the backhoe and drive.


Congratulations, Pedro, that's a great machine you've built!

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for July 2019

Thanks you everyone!! It's really cool to get this award on this amazing forum. I'm really pleased to be part of it!

Special thanks to Newsman for nominating me for the MoM and of course to Donewrken for letting us all post on his thread about all kinds of stuff.

Here are a couple of videos of the machine:



Again, thank you all for the support!
