    Ground-Driven PTO Forecart converted from antique tractor

    Ground-Driven PTO Forecart converted from antique tractor

    This ground-driven PTO forecart is made out of a CASE VC tractor. We split the engine off of the rear end, and built the rear end up into a cart, adding a deck, tongues, a seat, and a railing. Generally, a forecart is used in between a team of draft horses and a piece of farm equipment and includes a place for the teamster to stand or sit while operating the machinery. For us at the Northland Sheep Dairy that means a 14 ft rotary tedder (tested and functional) but it could be used for many different PTO-driven pieces of equipment--perhaps even combines and balers. This project was undertaken at the Northland Sheep Dairy by Donn Hewes.
