PostSubject: James's project" Bertha " [2017 Build-Off Entry] [Finalist]   Fri Jun 02, 2017 8:19 pm

My name is james un"jimjim0288"  this is my tractor Bertha and I feel as though it's less then 50 percent completed . The only thing I really modified is the front axle which I cut the welds off the Chanel that braces the axle and put in one inch spacer and lifted the hood two inches to clear atv tires . I have not welded the axle brace back in yet . I also put in some diamond plate on the dash with gauges and led push buttons which none have been wired yet , and I have cut out some of the wording that was no longer needed like the electric pto crap for the mower deck . So here are the things I'm going to be doing to it ...
•Change transmission from six speed between the legs to six speed on the fender and modify frame to mount it and set it further back then stock
•build mount for a 2000lb winch for the front of the tractor .
•weld in the support for the front axle and update axle with newer model with grease fittings .
• update the steering or modify it to be tighter .
• Finnish my wheel hubs " mounting surface isn't completely flat"
• mount a 48inch snow blade to work with winch and turn side to side with the mower lift .
• fine tweak the hood fitment
• build a rear bumper/ brush guard to match the front
• wire in the gauges / switchs / winch
• take it all apart and repaint every inch
• put it all back together and hopefully do well in the build off lol

After hitting the button that says "host an image" at the top of the post box, follow the instructions in the link below. Should be the same with a phone.

And welcome to the site!

I'm currently wasting an 18 horse oppy on a rebadged MTD... if I ever actually got traction, I'd twist of the poor lil fnr axles

Nothing wrong with that, if it was planned. I know about making the new house "home" We just moved this past DEC. We are still unpacking and making some mods that work for us!
