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! :congrats::congrats:​

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!

Thanks mopar!

You actually got that right! It took me a couple of months to figure that out a long time ago.

One of the axles if from a Toyota Ke70. European model I guess? The other one is from a old classic Ford Anglia 105.

Somehow, on the cars the axles actually rotated in opposite directions, which for me is just perfect as I can simple connect both axles with a chain. If both rotated to the same directions, I would had to make a gearbox with two gears.

By the way, the chain drive between the two axles, also serves to correct the difference between the diff ratios since they are different.
