been needing to do this for 2 years, finally broke down and got new rim, got it all sanded, primed and painted to go and install on tractor at farm next weekend. This is for raking, and tedding, big oliver sucks tooo much fuel for light duty such as this. Gran sons looking foward to running it this hay season, tedding & raking. Wants to help, but doesn't alwys want to stack hay, so will let him do this fun(driving tractor) part in addition to harder work.
And yes its american made.

17HP of Orange beauty with a super low idle. Just rebuilt the carb and I keep mine in reserve. It's amazing what it can do with only 17HP. If you are interested I can send a pic of "The Great and Powerful Oz" as we have named it, although none of my tractors are show ready. These youngsters don't know what they are missing. 540 PTO and semi custom three point with that mechanical lift - unique and stronggggg. Good all round useful machines. A landscaper in New City beat the snot out of it for thirty five years and then sold it to me when he could afford a skid steer. Still running as new. One of the immortals.

This one is a work machine, has WFE,3 point eagle hitch, draw bar, and all new tires and rims but one front tire & rim. rear side panels are off, but have them, gas tank has leak,, got another one also to put on, split 3 years ago, put new rear main seal in & new clutch. The brakes don't work for crap, but the disc set up is a bit hard to locate parts for, used plenty, want some new parts if possible. really a simple tractor, plowed some with it few years back, a 2 bottom dearborn, pulled it very well, no issues, pulled better than my brothers 9n could.

Brakes on a tractor are an optional extra.

We had our calcium filled tires rot our rims out after a few years on our Kubota, but the dealers $2,000 dollar quote to replace the rims and break down and reload the tires was too much for us to handle. We ended up fixing the rim for $21 dollar in material which involved getting some steel and just welding in a patch for the existing rim. A little Kubota paint to match and we were good.

As for reloading the tires, we have the pump and stuff for that, so a few bags of calcium mixed with water will make it a little heavier in her hiney. With a loader on the front, you want a little "junk in the trunk" so to speak to even things out.

It is amazing some of the prices that are out there and thrown out by dealerships. With a little tinkering you can fix just about anything, especially on old farm tractors.
