  • Great article! I'd give you an "A" in that school of hard knocks. It is truly amazing how ideas become reality once the right folks can get togther and make it happen. Looking forward to the next article.

  • Fun story. Thanks for sharing it. I would love to hear about your WD 45 restoration project.

  • I'm always interested in somebody else's projects. Although I don't have the need (or the cash!!) to tackle something as big as your project, I build a three point mounted tree planting unit this spring. What a project!! Let us see your next unit!!

  • Good article...but I would add one thing to lower the force placed on the blade. Here in Lincoln NE we contract with the city to do residential snowplowing and the 10ft. blade on my 1206 has a V shaped angle iron that goes back from the low point of the frame to the where the draw bar hooks on under the axle. We push snow where no truck dares to go.

  • Really enjoyed your article. Hope you will do another on the A/C. The pictures really made the piece work the best.

  • Great Story! Reminds of some of the things I had to do as a mechanic/truck driver for a couple of Implement dealers I used to work for!! guess I'll have to write up a couple of them. Gosh, it's fun to fabricate things like that!!!!

  • If anyone were to read this article listed above, it is with deep regret that the man known to us as "Big Dog David Patterson" passed away last fall with cancer. His fight was nothing less that great. Just like this article you have read, Dave had a love for life and tractors. He showed me enormous love, as I was his wife "Katie". Enjoy this article as I'm sure you will. We all miss Dave very much, may his memories last forever!

  • Dave, I appreciate yours & Dr. Johns step by step on the dozer blade. Watchn' folks fabricate has always interested me. Pop my granddad. always used to say "Imagine it in your head before you start. and get a FULL picture before you start your project. & he would put it on paper afterward just to make sure it didn't get shredded (or lost) and he didn't have any college experience. I've done the same thing and it is truly amazing how the project comes out. as I'm sure you would agree. Thanks loads for that note and look foreward to more of yours & Dr. John's adventures. Kirk

  • Neat project, Dave! I'm restoring a 1954 Allis WD-45 also. It's cold here now and my garage stall is the only place I have to work on it, so I'm stalled until next spring. It would be fun to share with each other what we run into on the WD-45. I haven't taken very many pictures of the work in progress, but I've been into almost every nook and cranny of the tractor, so I can relay a fair amount of information. Had to make a few parts along the way, as well. Email me if you run into anything you have questions about. Phill Snartland
