So I was gonna do laundry then realized I needed to post this awesome Orange tractor instead.
I stole the photo from the BOVB's new Indianapolis Correspondent, Dave, who posted it on Facebook. Here's what he reported about the vehicle:
"I got this in 1996, it is a 1954 Allis Chalmers WD45 wide front end, power take off, pulley, and 'snap-coupler' (a forerunner to the more popular 3-point hitch.) This was a POWERFUL tractor for it's size and made easy work plowing three rows back when two rows at a time was standard. 45 HP four cylinder straight gas engine was standard but you could get it in diesel or liquid propane. It had an adjustable draw bar that would raise or lower depending on the load that it was encountering. I got this from the original owner to use clearing and leveling our property before we built our house here in Zionsville. I used it to cut grass, haul rocks, clear snow, grade our driveway, plow a garden, and pull a float in a parade. "
Sweet. And on top of all that, it's Orange. Dave may be sending more pix along. When he does, I'll post them.
