Minneapolis Moline G750

Well I'm not afraid to say that I'm very excited about this project. A customer has asked for a Minneapolis Moline G750 to show along side his real one. I've never seen one of these in person... that may be because there were just over 200 of them made. All of the sheet metal will be the same as the Oliver 1650 that I did a year ago, but the grill will be totally new, and of course the paint color. :)

 This is what I'm starting with... a Cub Cadet 125. 12 horsepower Kohler with a hydro transmission.
The hood and grill are done...
 Fenders mounted, and making progress on the axle...
I always go through the hydro units on these tractors. New seals throughout and new seals in the rear end and engine as well.
 Finally started to paint...
 It's kind of weird re-assembling a yellow tractor... It's a first for me. :)
All done...

More later,

Red Power Roundup 2014

My Dad and I went to the Red Power Roundup in Huron South Dakota. We had nice weather for travel and the show. We took 2 orders at the show, and 2 more once I got home. All in all a very successful show for The Little Tractor Co.
 Thanks Dad, I couldn't have done it without you! :)
Who'd have thought that you teaching me to weld when I was 9 or 10, would lead to me building huge toys!
