M4 High Speed Tractor Picture Walk Around

Recommended Posts

I recently brought this M4 HST out of Holland and thought you might like a few pics of it . It was imported from America 3 or 4 years ago by a friend of mine and then sold to a collector in Holland who after owning and restoring it then put it up for sale the early part of this year, it was advertised on milweb .It hasnt got the original engine fitted , it has been retro fitted with a petrol Ford V8 with a 3 speed auto gear box driving through the original manual gear box of the tractor , it goes extremely well and is like a racing car compared to the M10

What engine would it have had originally?

I love the 'Left Hand Drive, No Signals'. Meeting that on the road would concentrate the mind wonderfully! :D Can't you run a propane bottle like the old fork lifts?

Never mind the "No hand signals", what about the max speed of 35mph! Christ of a pushbike, that'd be frightening seeing that coming towards you at 35mph (What's it's top whack, btw?)

"Fitting a propane bottle like a forklift" You would not get to far before you would need a refill. The original engine was a WAUKESHA, 6 cylinder, dual carb with a thirsty appetite.

Here is the Waukesha 145GZ which is fitted to the M4 HST, if any M4 HST owner is looking for one I have some in stock.

Ha, not its not but i like it. I recently had my MV recognition software upgraded to version 2.0. I wouldn't rely on me for any surgical services tho.

We need to see the HST on a rogers behind the Diamond now.

Weve had a oil leak on the high speed tractor transmission and this afternoon Mike (tootall) traced it to the top transmission cover gasket or lack of one, it had been put back together a long time ago with some sort of instant gasket which had done its time . The transmission looks as good as new inside and we are hoping to put it back together on Thursday
