One of the coolest modified Wheel Horse tractor or tractors was two early to mid 60's that had been fixed together side by side. I only saw it in pictures about 5 or 6 years ago. It was an excellent job. Maybe TT or one of the other members that have been collecting for a while will have a picture of it.

The plow is from a ditch witch, flipped upside down and added a cutting edge to the bottom.

Great machine buddy. What do those new hood decals say?

Charlie

They say "Cowboy's High Horse"Guess that's where the expression comes from?

"Livin' high on the Horse!" :smile:

      Hello all. I am looking for suggestions on adapting the pto from my C series tractor to a harbor freight predator 420 13hp engine. I know the predator motors are a controversial topic however it is the route I have chosen for this particular machine. The intent was to mostly use it for plowing so no PTO required but it would be handy to have. Looking to hear from someone that has successfully done the swap that may offer any advice before I attempt to transfer it over. Just looking for any general pointers that will help me along the way to make it go as smoothly as possible.
