The payloader is used as a forkilft now--it is run by a Ih153c motor powering hydraulics I can't find a lot of info on it--but I think it was made in 50s--60s the lifting articulates to keep forks level as it lifts--I have lifted my hendy/norton universal mill and my bridgeport mill off my truck so it's healthy.---the homade unit has two 56 chev rearends cut narrower and one turned to face the other with a drive shaft between them--the drive shaft has a chain sprocket on it that connects to a drive on other side that is two 56 chev 3spd tranies in a row powered by a JD 2 cyl Luc engine.--the unit steers by braking either side--it will have hyds to power a snow blower and hoist and whatever other attachment I make for it. the tractor w loader is an IH 404 loboy. --the units on two wheels are JD LUC power units. a man needs to have lots of projects---- and--- machining tools to not get stumped for parts.

Has anyone ever seen one of these? It's a 1954 Federal tank retriever. It's quite handy. It has a 20,000 pound lift capacity when the boom is completely vertical.

Cool, what do you use it for?

Lifting, pulling, winching. It's equiped with a Garwood winch and the boom swings from side to side, that day that particular picture was taken I just got done loading a couple of dead trucks onto a lowboy trailer with it.

Left--1968 Cub Cadet 125 with a QA-42 snow thrower and on the right is my 1966 Cub Cadet 122 with a 42" front blade. This is my snow crew.

These are also my everyday lawn care/roto tilling/plow tractors.
Nice pair of CUB's, my pair is a husky (junk) and an old Crastsman (best lawn tractor I have owned) The battry is 10 years old? Cant belive it. :man:

Wow, I have not seen one of those mini loaders in 30 years. we used one around the construction yard to load and unload scaffolding, skids of mortar and Portland cement, skids of screw jacks and used it mainly as a mule to move construction shanty's around the yard. that's a handy little tractor.
Thanks for sharing.
George.

Is that an oliver?
It's called an "Earthmaster". They are rare. They are very similar in size/engine to a Massey Harris Pony.

This particular is a beat up one I bought for parts to restore the I have that belonged to my father. It was "modified" with a cutting torch to fit a Hercules 4 cylinder in it. They were originally powered by a gas Continental N62.

Thanks,
Steve W.

New to me couple weeks ago 122. With snow thrower, mower and roto tiller (in pieces). She is a runner for $300. Not sure compression specs should be. i only get 50 psi. Good starting point for my first tractor. I took the snow blower off for the summer. Going to put the mower on.

This is my small 4x4 articulated Pasquali tractor. She is powered by a 2Cyl 1000cc air cooled Ruggerini Diesel Engine. Power output 26NM / 22.5HP. It is still in running conditions and to rebuild it one day is on my bucket list.

That's the smallest arti I've ever seen. When I think of articulated tractors I think of 400HP Steigers.

My guess is that mine is somewhere in the 70's but I am unable to confirm it, except that it is Italian. They were mostly used in Vineyards. Mine came with a rotovator and a single toe for ploughing and a missing hydraulic pump which is suppose to drive the rear 3 point hitch. I have seen various implements on the web being used.
It is mechanical drive and the main gearbox drives the front wheels. Rear wheels are driven with small universal type shafts to rear axle. Front axle also has a mechanical lever to engage diff lock on the front wheels.
She has a very interesting final drive system. 3speeds forward, 1 reverse but then there are another lever with 3 ranges (low, medium and high range) which gives you 9 forward speeds ranging from .4mph to 15mph and 3 reverse speeds ranging from .9mph to 10 mph. Below a schematic on the drive train. She has no breaks on the front axle only mechanical breaks on the rear axle.
