As I've been getting busier with life making lots of truck and tractor money and have less time to waste it, I've been running the tractors much less in the last year then I used to, I recently got in a wreck with a more recent build and tried pulling it along with various other stuck vehicles around the yard with the 961.

It's slipping on 1 rear most the time, I just don't remember if this tractor had/has diff lock or not? If I does the levers either gone, or I'm loosing my tractoring abilities, or it was never there in the first place, thus also loosing my mind, lol. I never had this problem much before but it's also lost the pie weights and tires drained since I last used it for pulling.

An unballasted tractor can not put its full horsepower to the ground.

I hope you weren't hurt Andy! That could have been bad!

As Greg said, I don't know of a 961 with a diff-lock.

Brakes to help control tire spin and ballast to provide traction.

No diff lock. Your main trouble is you lost all your pulling ability when you took off the extra weight on the tires. Using the brakes to control the spinning wheel is about all you have left to do!

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
