About

This is the only WWII model known to exist. Afreind found it while deer hunting. It belonged to a mushroom farmer who bought it at a military surplus auction in 1950. He used it up to 1974 and then drove it into the woods and parked it. When I picked it up it was halfway buried. Took a backhoe, and a 4 wheel drive to get it out, and loaded onto my trailer.
It took almost 4 hours of pressure washing to clean out the dirt that surronded the motor, and trans. A 20 ton porto power to get the mast unfrozen. I actyually got the engine freed up and had it running, but it needed an overhaul despertly. I sand blasted it, rebult the engine, resealed the trans, and repainted it.
I use it all the time on the farm. I cannot believe how well it gets around without getting stuck.
