    My buddy got a new welder for Christmas and asked if I had a project for him. I sketched the following out and bought the steel and he welded it up for me. I have all kinds of ideas on how to put this to use.

    Yes sir. 1952 8N. It's been a fantastic tractor. Does everything I need. See my avatar for another view.

    My dad has the original... a Ferguson TO35. They are great tractors... not that great on fuel though.. My dad is always complaining about my 4x4 JD1050... yet he keeps borrowing it and my brushhog to knock down the 10 acres of field across from my house.. because it can do it for $15 worth of diesel...

    Definetly a short coming of tractors I've owned. No place to store stuff. I mounted a milk crate on the top of my 3 point.

    I keep saying to myself that I gotta get a welder some day. Seeing stuff like this just makes me thing I really need a welder.
