So where do you get all that chrome? Is it just sheats of thin metal, that is chromed, that you attach on?, or are you sending the stuff out to be chromed?

How do the chaines work

John you know when we first got our big SNOW ? Then we had the big ICE party. Well I had just put the new tires on and they worked good . But then I was working the front with the DOZER BLADE and the rear had the GRADER Blade on. And like I told you then most of the time I had between 5">>>>>>16" of just good old WET SNOW or that POWDER TYPE SNOW and most of the time alot of ICE.And I could go up any hill/driveway with NO PROBLEM.So to your question , and this is only because I know first hand. I REALLY LIKE THEM AND WOULD USE THEM AGAIN ANYTIME /ANYWHERE. And I do also keep the wheel weights on all the timecruisin :tractorsm

Sam,

Where did you get the sleeve hitch adapter which has a hitch ball plus still allows you to hook up a standard garden cart for instance? My DGT6000 would really like to have one of them!!

Thanks,
Brian

Man wheres my sun glasses if that sun was a little lower i would have been blinded:D Looks great Sam:thumbsup: I can see part of your arm and leg in the back of your tractor. That looks tough with the Ag lugs and that big old Actuator and the chrome on the back really sets it off.:thumbsup:

Lost leg/arm but found by Jody

Thanks alot there Jody. I sortta like it and that wife ( JEANNIE) said she sortta thinks it could do with a dab more. chrome. But I tell you between John (sj) and Jeannie ( wife) I really have a hard time getting to even set on it with that BIG WATCH DOG. But I enjoy showing it off on the forum and looking at all the others so maybe get some new ideas.SAM

Sam…

That’s one sweet looking GT5000. Nice job on the sleeve hitch
ball / tow pin hole adapter. After you add some chrome engine
parts, the next add-on should be a “Low-Rider” suspension system.
This way you can bounce the front end off the ground and show off
some chrome driveline components. Chromed cast aluminum
wheels would be another nice touch, but not before the supercharger.

Isn’t playing with these things a lot better than golf ! :thumbsup:

PIMP THE GT 5000 INTO A LOW RIDER

:dazed: Well that was a good one " aegt5000. The wife and I got a good laught. You sound like some of the ones up here about getting "SAM'S GT 5000 INTO A LOW RIDER SHOW. " Always fun to have friends that can come up with good ones. I think you were the one that asked about the chrome.WELL I DO GET SOME OF THE PARTS CHROMED AND THEN SEND OFF TO A PLACE AND HAVE STUFF MADED UP. That John (sj and my wife) Jeannie want me to get a chrome Dozer Blade. My son said dad " NEXT TIME YOU SHOULD JUST BUY A TOTAL CHROME TRACTOR AND THEN PAINT WHAT YOU DON'T WANT CHROME. :furious: :furious:
I really enjoy showing off things I do or try to make and on the same hand enjoy others showing what they have done. Just GREAT we have such a GREAT FOURM. Can't waite until I get them new Lug's out in the dirt/mud. It's really funny that some ask me " SAM DO YOU REALLY USE THAT TRACTOR OR IS IT JUST FOR SHOW?" And I tell them I have had it just over a year and have almost 200 work hours on it.It works and it also get played with. :devil:
Today I greased / washed / waxed / and put some 10-30 MOBIL ONE want to see how it works . Thanks again for the pat on the back. I think that ( JODY ) was gonna get me some chrome stack parts. ( don't tell him about it. SAM
