#tractors

Still learning but what did I learn? Press on the clutch while turning the key and lift up the implements before stepping on the gas! Yikes!

I just bought this 1951 Cockshutt 30 two weeks ago, but was unable to get a video driving it until today. (I live an hour drive from the farm where the tractors are kept)

Anyway, this tractor has a bad engine, as you can see by the blow-by coming from the left side. I knew this of course, in fact I bought it specifically for this reason because I have a small turbo diesel that I wanted to swap into something. I was originally going to swap it into a small pickup truck or something, but I happened upon this old 30 with a half-assed decent paint job and a fawked engine, and I figured ‘why not?’

Yes, the front wheels are bent; yes, the rad cap is missing. This old girl needs quite a bit of work, but I like messing on this stuff so it’s all good. And it does move on its own for now, so please enjoy the video.

I’m not used to driving it, and doing it with one hand while filming doesn’t help, so don’t mind me looking like an amateur. The throttle also keeps vibrating up toward idle, resulting in a limp-dicked takeoff in high gear.

The tractor has a 4 speed transmission with a high and low range, (8 speeds total, 2 reverse) which you see me shift with my right foot about halfway through, in case you’re wondering what I was doing there.

Serial # 30-30467

Couldn’t resist getting a video driving this big red animal while I was at the farm today, so here you go.

I bought another old tractor last weekend, but wasn’t able to get a video of it because it needs some minor work to be driveable. I did get one of my 35 though.

This 35 differs from the one in the other video (which is a family hand-me-down) in that it is a standard. You’ll notice it doesn’t have the same transmission whine because it has a bad gear or bearing somewhere in the high range. One day I’ll tear into it and get it fixed—although it does drive fine for now. This one does have a rebuilt engine though, so it has noticeably more power.

Serial # 35-1433

I will try to get a video of the ‘new’ tractor up soon.

What the title says. We have two 1956’s.

A short drive on a Canadian-built hunk of farm history.

A short clip of early 60’s technology; the sound of engineered badassery. (Headphones at MAX!)

Eleven months after the last installment of this project, and I finally get round to finishing it! I didn't follow my original plan of sewing a canvas canopy, as you'll see, but I can't complain about the results. This canopy blocks 90% of light, which is better than any umbrella, so it serves its purpose. Now, the only question is "will it keep me dry when I'm throwing snow?"

Tractor-driving farmers taking to the streets to demand greater recognition have caused the worst ever Dutch morning rush hour on Tuesday 1 October, according to motoring organisation ANWB.

There were 1,136km (700 miles) of jams at the morning peak, it said.

Farmers reacted angrily to claims that they were largely responsible for a nitrogen oxide emissions problem.

A report has called for inefficient cattle farms to be shut down and some speed limits lowered to cut pollution.

Farming groups believe they are being victimised while the aviation industry is escaping scrutiny.

How big were the protests?
The tractors arrived early on Tuesday, some of them knocking down fences to get there. Three people were arrested, according to public broadcaster NOS.

Thousands of farmers, many on their tractors, took part in the protest in a field in the centre of The Hague. Police said 2,200 farmers joined the protest.

Hague mayor Pauline Krikke warned of an "unsafe situation" but no further trouble was reported and drone pictures showed dozens more tractors parked on Scheveningen beach while their owners joined the demonstration.

#BOERENPROTEST

2 years ago

In this video, I document the process of cutting the square tubes and welding them together to make a frame for my tractor canopy. This process didn't go quite as smoothly as this footage might have you believe, but the final product matches my drawing almost perfectly. So far, I'm quite happy with it, and even though it's not finished, I would definitely recommend this method for anyone trying to build their own tractor canopy.

Why there is a two-month gap between this video and the last one: https://steemit.com/diy/@steampunkkaja/diy-tractor-canopy-days-4-and-5

In which Stef N Tel say words like 'banana' 'car' 'dog' 'cranberry' 'table' and 'bullfinch'.. Mostly animals and fruit because Tel is half fruit half animal.. Meanwhile the CIA invades Tels nose with helicopter gunships dressed as tractors and Stef provides inside information on how to get from said nose to brain. It's a tough path, a long unending tunnel, all black and sooty, with no assurance there is any form of brain or conscious to be found at all..

In this video, I demonstrate a practical application of CAD as I draw up an assembly for the frame of a tractor canopy. This isn't just a virtual model, but also a blueprint with a bill of materials. The sequels to this video will show the actual construction of the canopy frame and sewing the canopy itself, in that order.

How I measured the angle of the roll-bar:
