Description

Looking to add a bigger tractor to their farm and save some money along the way, Greg and Glenn Honey of Bracken, Saskatchewan spent the winter of 1978-79 building a giant yellow and black workhorse that has come to symbolize farmer ingenuity and sheer power.

 I love these home built machines ,, and even more the care and attention that was paid to it during building I myself have a couple home made tractors but mine are a wee bit smaller ,,I built my tractors out of automotive components mostly ,the one i use the most was built out of 2 nissan trucks and a ford truck I used a nissan 3 liter V6 with a 4 speed automatic and mated a 5 speed manual behind it rockwell divorced transfer case direct bolted to a rockwell 2 speed truck axle from a grain truck ,I used mostly 6 inch C channel for the frame I built this machine in 2001 originally 2 wheel drive but after 10 years using it i upgraded it with 4 wheel drive ,,the rear tires are 14.9-28 ,and 11R22.5 in front ,,fronts are irrigation pivot tires ,,had to figure out the correct ratio to make them turn the correct speed and then find a 4x4 front axle to match ,,I settled on a front axle from a 1984 F250I rebuilt it as a strait axle with a pivot just like a tractor axle in 2014 i also upgraded it again this time by a round about way i added a live PTO ,this required having a power shaft made for the front of the engine ,,,this shaft turns a 6 groove pulley with 6x 5/8 in belts that turn an irrigation power unit clutch with a 4 speed muncie behind it ,this unusual arrangement gives me a 4 speed PTO kind of an ugly machine but it works well for my small farm as a utility tractor ,,it is however all electronic because i kept the complete electrical system from the vehicle the engine was in it has all of the features you would expect from any tractor including heat and AC ,and it's a 20 speed power shift thanks to the auto tran
