chrome handles (lol)
Got this machine from the original owner in winter 2016, for free nonetheless. He obviously took very good care of it, oil, grease and even anti-rusted it every spring before storing it in his heated garage. Unfortunately, the wheel shaft was broken when I got it, being in such a great shape, I decided go ahead and fix it with a weld and sleeve to finish up the 2016 winter. It came with tire chains, but immediately took em off as it was harsh on the transmission components and one of the main reason for the shaft failure.

Wheel and Tire
2017, I decided to change the wheel shaft, replaced all bushings and the single shear pin sprocket with a dual shear pin sprocket. Everything is nice and tight. Upgraded the small none aggressive wheels with bigger tractor style wheels.
