Northern France actually
Tractors are used fairly regularly in construction these days, as a way to get around driving hour limits for trucks.

i don't own any tractors yet, just work on them
can you build a business around owning one of these and/or a loader
yeah i'm near a rural area very mountainous though
I use two John Deere 4450s on my ranch. I'm lucky enough to not have had to split one yet. I did help split an old 5020 JD once.

not sure which one ur replying too. certainly people around here use backhoes and skid steers for dirt work and landscaping. sometimes just for brush clearing. now if ur meaning actual farm tractors, there are people who do custom hay work. they have no acreage on their own, but do hay for other farmers. decent living if u do enough
those r good. helped my godfather on his farm all through high school and college
bump. i love these tractor threads, even though i neither know anything about tractors nor have any particular connection with them. i just wish they were nerdier. i'd like to hear tractor enthusiasts hold forth on the minutiae of tractors and tractor ownership. teach me about tractors!

You can, but it depends a lot on your area, I cant speak for the USA but in Europe lots of gardeners have them, there are also people that specialise in small scale earthworks who have a whole park of miniature machinery, excevators, front end loaders, skidsteers and telehandlers, all under 2 tons (metric), so there's definitely a market for that kind of work.
Try finding some actual forums for that, they're usually more active too

>added mirrors
>replaced window seals
>new hand fuel pump
>reintroduced doors
>new front fenders

nicely done man. it's cool to see restoration projects like that. had someone do a restoration on an old Farmall B. turned out pretty good
i live in farmerland in the middle of nowhere in the uk
i love seeing the small cute tractors and the baeuetifal vintage machines
seen some cool ancient ones even steam powered ones
i love all the interesting ways the farmers do their logistics like using a small tractor to tow a land train with like 3 trailers and one of them has a dune buggy thinggie on it loll
the big ones are cool too but so scary on the backroads
all the corners are blind youre just betweeon 2 hedges 1.5 cars wide
and then suddenly a giant machine that takes up the entire with a huge metal spikey bladed contraption hanging off the front or back with tyres taller than the roof of my car comes round the corner
its always either a 17yo driving
or an 80yo who cant see shit
i could be going like 30 to 70mph (70 is the speed limit lolll)
and those things can go like 40 i think
i have seen death im telling you
not that other car drivers havnt almost killed me more or anything
its actually not so bad on my bike
i mean im going about 40 tops but i can also outbrake and outmaneuver any car so its actually way less scary when a big tractor comes round the corner
also its nice when im riding by one of the small tractors and i can say hi to the driver as i go by lol
tracktors on the fuckign motorway
based honestly but holy shit dude someones gonna die
put it on a flatbed if you arent even towing anything cmon ur a big slow object on a road full of cars and lorries going at least 50 up to 100+
someeone gonna die
love these dudes
ive seen these out on the road lol
i found a steamy like this but smaller in the woods
looked like it hadnt moved in a good decade at least
bet she still werks tho :)
based but deadly
oh shit that was long sorry

How does this work?
Are you saying a driver can only legally drive a truck for X hours a day so they get him to drive a tractor, where possible, so that he can work for longer?

Yep, driving times for trucks are very regulated here, max 9 hours a day (twice a week can be upped to ten) or 56 hours per week, or 90 hours per 2 weeks.
These regulations dont apply for tractors, but you still need the same license to drive them (CE, truck and trailer)
Because of that, every truck driver in construction is also allowed to drive a tractor with a trailer.
One disadvantage however is that they are limited to 40km/h
And depending on the usecase they may or may not be allowed to drive on red diesel, forestry for instance.

Can anyone give me a ballpark figure of how much weight a Fergie TEF-20 can tow?
Assuming the surface is cement/asphalt.
Bouut 350
rule of thumb that Ive heard is ~1 metric ton per 10 horse
so by that logic, you should be able to get about 2.5 to 3 tons out of it
>Would you intrested in some progress pics?
>should I spam them or make a mega folder
Im good with either
Cheers for being helpful.

i am on the lookout for an old power king lawn tractor with a pto to restore at the moment
that thing is pretty dope. hope you find a nice one
In germany I dont even need a proper license and can legally haul the same tonnage behind a tractor as a semi may. Just not at the same speed and on the highway.
Not a very sustainable incentive.

i think they only built about 300 of these and most went to australia. commiefornia emissions have probably scattered the last few here in the states
wabco made the best elevating can and i've seen pictures of some 653/9 machines built by an aussie with a wabco elevator

gonna argue that one. case 5130 maxxum has hydraulic clutches that are engaged by solenoids and spools. if ur shifting is failing, it can be the diode on the back right rear of the cab, or the shuttle switch are most common. the hydraulic clutch will also last 3 to 4 times longer than a dry mechanical clutch, though i do agree the feel is different.picture of a hydraulic fwd/rev clutch
check'd digits
nothing you described can't be fixed. a factory service manual is worth spending the money on and much cheaper than paying somebody to come out even once. it's silly to piss and moan when a few hours wrenching will remedy the issue
