Welcome back to rainy central Ohio BD!! If all the rain we've had here had fallen as snow we'd look like Buffalo NY by now.
Is that a Cub? Looks like more tractor than a Cub to me! When ya bringing one over this way?

Glad you got home with no trouble. That looks like the H you posted a picture of a while back. How much did you have to move the rear wheels in to make it fit on that tandem trailer :?:

I made a road trip two weeks ago and brought this home.

Bigdog,

You either need to get a longer trailer or shorter tractors. Looks like you weren't very efficent this time. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Larry, we had to move each wheel in 5" which left us 1/2 on each side of the trailer. Here is a picture of the wheel move. Those wheels had not been move since the tractor was new. It is a 48 model. The fellow in the picture is my brother-in-law.
The wheel move went rather well. The worst part was breaking the bolts loose.

We had 2H's on our farm, and one was just like that . I reconise the wheels. It had what they called then a power pack in it. suppose to make it equil to a standerd "M", I don't think it did but it did have a lot more power than the other "H" and was a lot faster. Your "H" sure looks as to be in nice shape. Have fun with that one BD. "Jack"

Bigdog, good looking H! :D Are you going to restore it and the loader too?
Our M has the same loader, but someone mangled the arms so it's coming off. We've got parts for those! :lol:

Parts Man,
The loader still has the original sears tag on it. Once I get the tractor done, I will do the loader. I just finished unloading the tractor and re-mounted the loader. Had to scoop a couple of scoops of gravel for the dog run just to see how it works. The arms are nice & straight. Trip rod to the bucket is kind of curvy. Bucket was modified to use as a dirt scoop. The tines were cut off.
It's cold & raining here today. It's nice to have a big barn. I backed the truck & trailer into the barn and unloaded it inside.

Hey Big Doggy! Looks great. I would like to see it sometime. Maybe it will stop raining sometime this year so you can play with it. Bill

Looking at your H brings back a lot of memories. I was raised on them, and have spent more hours than I can count wheeling them on our Mo. farm.

You guys have all of the luck. Drove across Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and parts of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia last week. The only red I saw was when paying for gas in West Virginia!
