What is this for?

Postby leerenovations » Sat Jun 02, 2012 2:39 am

Just saw this tractor on the local craigslist with what looks like a metal implement wheel mounted to the front bumper. Any idea what its for? Maybe he puts some lumber under it and uses it as a wheel barrow.

Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.

Looks heavy. I'd guess it might be ballast to counterbalance that heavy rear mounted mower.

And here I was hoping it was for trench crossing like WWII Army vehicles.
