I had a shock of recognition as quick as love at first sight in '94 when it caught the corner of my eye sitting for sale not 10 feet from the edge of a 55-mph New York State highway. I was not looking for such a machine at all, but when I saw it--deep lug agricultural (8.0-24 inch inside-diameter) wheels on a tractor not much bigger than any 'garden' tractor and notably smaller than a Farmall cub--the bulb in my brain said instantaneously and simultaneously:

I never saw a tractor with those proportions before

What a brilliant set of specifications combined in one machine.



Of course! Why do we not see more of these around?1

I want it. It's just what I need to remove snow from 1,000 feet of sidewalks.
