Okay I lied...1st project will be a rear ballast...why even have atractor with no weight on rear?????

Need a barrel, drawbar and concrete....

then a fullcage, some bucket/grabber work etc.

this will be a long drawn out project, I just need a place to store it and the pictures

Congrats!!! She's a Beaut!!!! Keep us posted with your progress!!!

My Dad bought a new 4000 gasser in 1974.

You're probably gonna wish you had my FWD and I wish I had your FEL. :D

Down the road I could see a FWD version, just for the backside of property...this a heck of a step up from a garden tractor :laughing:

so wifey said she needed dirt for a new flower bed...:stirthepot:

Hey at least I pulled out big roots....this should surprise her tonight when she gets home...or it may just piss her off with how much dirt is there :laughing:

need to make a rear ballast this weekend and cut a few trees for next try...

Yeah, unless she wants an elevated flower bed you might have overdone it. Hard to control that enthusiasm!!! :)

No no he needs a backhoe to do that. Too much Manuel labor

Re: New project 1975 Ford 5000

Good news is I was able to sleep in the house when she got home

She actually said "how in the heck are we going to spread that out?"

"ugh...with the tractor" :tractor:

"oh, yeah...okay"

Nice build. Very useable attachment. I built one a few years ago as a Winter Shop Project and use it more than I ever thought I would. :)
