Can't wait to see it with the new shoes.
It looks a lot different! Pictures soon.Can't wait to see it with the new shoes.
Hey Mike,Nice seat, Austen, is that the one that belongs on it originally? Did you have to have the spacers custom made like the ones on your PK?
Thanks, Dave! It's my favorite style of Bolens seat. The pictures above from my 1886 will give you a close idea of how the wheels look.I love that seat! It's totally unique, and looks great on your tractor. Seeing the adapters/spacers, I can't wait to see what rims, and tires you have in store.
I'm more like obsessed!O Yeah--Hot **** -Austen..what a difference. Love that Amsoil--Been using it for years.
Custom wheel spacers? Only Austen...(again--living our old lives vacariously--thru you)
Thanks, Dave!Nice! Very nice!
Thanks, Tim. These tires are filled with Bio Ballast and are actually 50lbs heavier per tire than the original setup including the 70lb weights, they do pretty well and no comparison to the turfs. I did have my Gannon Earthcavator on shortly before this picture but one of the quick connects for the hydraulic top link was leaking so I pulled it off. May put the manual adjust top link on in the meantime before the new coupler comes in; didn't think of that at the time I removed it.Any trouble moving around without any weight on the rear wheels to offset the bucket? Looks..... cool, pun intended!
Hey Tim! Thanks for the nice comments. Hoping to do some plow days with it this year and get together with other members of the tractor community if possible.You plan on going to any shows with that machine? I'd think you'd do pretty well with it. Don't think I've seen one nicer.
Thanks, Ken! The new couplers are much nicer to use and far less temperamental than the originals IMO. Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed the videos!Really really enjoyed watching the videos & checking out the pictures. Videos are packed full of information. So where to start? There's so much to say.
I don't want to forget to thank you for the LED's vs incandescent original bulbs comparison, so I'll start there.
I too have been curious about the LED's, but for me & for the same reasons (not much need for lighting up the evening sky) the look of the LED looses out over the originals.
I gotta get me some of those hydro couplers. So many times (especially in the middle of a snowstorm) you find yourself struggling to connect the hydro lines. "Not a good way to start the day," especially when you know you have hours of work ahead of you.
Glad you're able to have Nate work with you on getting the correct decals for your machine there. The other few things I wanted to comment on, I think I'll just message you about. Thanks for the updates Austen, great work so far.
lol, Thanks Dave! Yes, he likes to be apart of everything. Thanks for following along and checking out the content!Just catching up here. Nice vids! I enjoyed viewing them. I had to laugh at your "buddy". It looked like he was trying to decide whether he liked all the attention that the new "family member" is receiving, or not. The new tail light looks great. I'm sure that you will get the decal worked out.
It really is a very nice looking tractor!
