A 1086 for a customer.

It's been a while since I've updated... I have another tractor in the shop. The first one is headed to Pennsylvania. It will be an IH 1086 AWD turbo charged diesel...

  1. You are so incredibly gifted. I get a thrill out of seeing these models, reminds me of childhood and dreaming about these very types of results.

  2. Have you ever done a ferguson TE20?

  3. Just wanted to say great job on all ur tractor they are awesome

  4. Maybe I missed it on this tractor, will go back and look. What donor did you start with to give you a rear PTO. I am looking to build something from scratch but would like a rear PTO from a smaller tractor if possible.

  5. What kind of engines are going into these half scale tractors ? These are amazing I also grew up on a farm. International everything. Have you ever put a 3 cylinder cummings into any of your builds?

  6. First, Love your work, I'm retiring soon and have a project you might be able to help me with. I've got an old HI Cub Cadet that I would like to restore and convert to a track layer. For better power at the drive I would like to put a planetary gear on it. But I'm having trouble finding something that is "Off the Shelf" that I can work with. Any Idea's as to where to look? Thank you for your time.
