This was my project last summer. Before I get to the modifications I want to tell the story of how I acquired the tractor and the origin of the name “The Hunk”.
Well here goes. I bought it from a guy on Facebook marketplace, however I do not have a Facebook account (this is where it gets funny). I asked my wife to message the guy with her Facebook and her response was something along the lines of “you don’t need another tractor”...I disagreed. So I called my grandpop who has a Facebook and asked him to message the guy, which he did. When I told my wife what I did and that I was going to look at it the next day she was less then happy, but I still proceeded to go and buy the tractor. When I got it home she asked (With an angry tone) what I was going to do with another HUNK of junk, so to be even more spiteful I gave the word hunk a positive spin. And that is the story of The Hunk.What I’ve done so far
