I don't know if Madam had any of these situations, however many of the people I dealt with in Poughkeepsie spoke Yiddish. As a "Goyem" and Madam a "Schiksa" we didn't know much of that language. What little I learned was of necessity. I found early on that "Sum dumb Goy" was not a Chinese dinner.

Kvetch - isn't just complaining it's sometimes unneeded or unwanted suggestions. Not only complaining about how you're doing something, but the telling you how to do it. Many times with totally off the wall suggestions.

Cec, The tractor was built in 1988-89, so no digital pictures. I may have some Kodak Moments someplace, but right now I have no idea where.

Is there anything you might do different if you were to build it again?


I've thought about building one so is the reason I'm asking.

Power steering!!!!! It's a Toyota steering box and with the weight of the blade it's a bear to steer.

Norm that's one heck of a nice 'home-rolled' tractor and blade combo. Well done.

Very nice.

That is pretty good then if that is all you would change..

VW rabbit diesel engine?

What gear box? What frame did you start with?

Where did you get the front and rear axle.
