We bought the above tractor from my Father in law's estate. It has a magneto so it needs no battery. It has no hydraulics but it has a mechanical ground lift for the dozer blade and cultivator. It can pull a 2 bottom plow and has 540 PTO. Its not as handy as a Bobcat but it beats no tractor at all.
My Father in law built a push blade for it for snow and dirt and he also mounted a cord wood saw on the fromt that runs off the belt pulley. I don't have the blade on it now though. I am thinking of building a three point hitch for it that I would operate with a PTO pump since it has no live hydraulics.

This poor old Chalmers is getting a workout. We broke a record for snow fall for the Month of December at 32". Just spent 3 hours pushing snow after the plows went through. I hope we don't have a replay of 97. We had 120" on the level.

No pics, sorry. It is looking pretty sad right now. It needed new tires before and now one of the back ones blew. They want about $275 for rears for it but it needs rims too.
