He must have really loved her i always thought that tractor time was to get away from the wife:smiles: Welcome caseman-d mighty glad to have you abroad.:friends:

Back in the 50's they'd take two JD R's or 80's, remove the front wheels, and hook them up in line. I suppose some sort of 5th wheel setup. Then steered it with hydralic cylinders. Kind of the first articulating tractor. I don't know how they did the clutching/shifting stuff.

If I remember the article correctly, that's how the "Steiger" company got started.
