tms new loader tractor for now


Recommended Posts

while tinkering with the 7600 i decided to start another project i had in mind to pair up with her, again no drill so very limited to what i can do, she's based on a ford 6600 i saw the other day, with a tanco loader fitted,loader was ford blue  so this one will be to, and as usual shes sporting an opening door decals are ordered so once i get a drill so i can add cross braces ect to it, i will get back into the pair of them

Horndraulic's are anyway and would look right for the period etc so that might be the best approach ;)

Very smart conversion, does look like the old Steelfab Horndraulic / Ford loader of the 70's early 80's. How did you get the open doors effect on cab ?

with a fine sharpe blade, and care, the resin cabs are very fragile, but actually work best for the doors, just done a new 500 series one to for another on going job,if i remember next time i do one i will take some pics

thats was another option mate, saw one on a db the other day, on a lowloader and thought mmm britains were right in the length and shape,

Nice work mate, looks the part  :)

Although...I think the Massey Massive may need to start watching you..it has been a while since you have done any MF conversions, and all we have been seeing are Ford conversions  :o:D :D ;)

guys were the horndraullic/ford loader removable then?? or a perminate fixture, have come up with a way to make it removable whilst keeping the frame on the tractor, but no point if they didnt come of

The Ford version was loader arms removable only. which left the sub frame and tall upright pillars in front of cab the and rams in place after disconecting them from the loader arms. The Steelfab / Horndraulic 680 model was a drive in and came off and only left the two low pillars of the subframe in front of cab which the loader arms and a round the tractor support bracket fitted to when you drove into it and it self latched by spring loaded pins.  It had a spigot and pin fitting system at the front bolster casting which incorporated the grille guard. Hope this helps you
