This unit was at our club show and it's like what I have wanted to make for ages!
This one was made from 2 allis wc rear ends and has an English Ford 6-cylinder engine.
I wasn't able to get pictures of the complete center hinge joint, or what they used for the drop box to connect the axles together. The frames looked like old truck frames cut off and fit where needed. Whoever made id did a pro-job on it!

Looks like the brakes aren't hooked up on the back axle...were they used on the front, or was there a driveline brake somewhere?

Wonder if they ran it hydrostatic instead of mechanical...

It has a transmission brake hooked up and it is a 5 speed truck transmission with regular clutch in it.

a lot of clearance under that tractor..kinda more like a log skidder than a tractor.Full cab nonetheless..probably has a plow mounted for winter time operations..godzilla level torque with that 6cylinder diesel engine too!
