Awesome looking tractor.     Tell us more about it....Was it a C series before the mods?

 

I made many trips to Graz, Austria to test hydro turbines at the Astro Hydro Lab.       Beautiful City.

Welcome, Dieter! 

 

That is a really nice looking tractor. We would all love to hear any stories you have about its history and the modifications to it.

 

I'm curious - does that stack shake much when running?  That is a very tall stack.

Thanks! 

 

I bought it a few years ago only to for snow shipping but slowly one idea comes after another :-).


I added a Rotec 270ccm engine with 6.5kW.

 

You mean the muffler? I made it so high because i don't wanted to breath in the exhaust gases from the engine. Maybe i change it to sidepipes in furure ;-)


To realize a good working clutch with the more powerfull engine I added a centrifugal clutch to decouple the engine and a disc brake to brake the input axle of the gearbox. I know confusing construction but it works.
I also switched from constant hand throttle to foot pedal throttle.

 

Also i added some position lights like showed in the second pic and a more sporty stearingwheel :-)

Very interesting, it looks like a beast!  What kind of snow plow do you have for it?  It looks quite custom as well, from what I can see.

Ingenious modification.   I've never seen that one.   :handgestures-thumbup:         Was it a C series?

The  C series tractors were made by Wheel Horse  in the 1970s.     Here is my C-101.IMG_1812.JPG.753d2e32204ca1c5b628b85d5615b81e.JPG

Hey, if a member stateside has one, I’m up for being commissioned to deliver it :)

Probably cheaper to ship it though. :(

There are 1” (25.4 mm) and 1-1/8” (31.75”)  axles, in various lengths.  Could you please measure yours and report back?

I will make you a foto of the snow shield, it is for sure custom.

  I like the disc brake idea. Is it off a bicycle?
