Published in the "System D Pros" section of issue 829, Cyrille Redois' little "all-purpose" tractor is a real technical feat and a great example of recovery - a real lesson in mechanics to discover!

A small all-purpose tractor

Carpenter carpenter, our reader has manufactured a tractor designed from various mechanical elements taken from different vehicles: the diesel engine comes from a car without a license, the gearbox of a Golf, the brake caliper of a Citroën C15 and the rack
steering wheel of a Renault 20... An achievement capable of working the ground with a hydraulic lifting system and a PTO.

Necessary material

The chassis

The chassis

The attachment of the clutch lever with below the tab which receives the sheath are located on the left part of the chassis. The steering column of a cart is positioned in the center. On the right are the profiles that receive the forward / reverse shuttle. These parts were welded on a cradle motor engine type ruggerini diesel type md 151-9

Different profiles are used for the left part of the chassis. In the upper part the profile of 188-30-15 is used for fixing the first fixed hood. An 8x50 bolt serves as a stop for the accelerator pedal. A drilled cylinder Ø10 mm locks the clutch (from a tiller) of the rotovator. The cover is secured by an angle bracket above.

The angle of the steering column is inclined at 70° to the chassis.

The installation of the rear and front trains

Between the design and the realization, it is not rare that the do-it-yourselfers are brought to make modifications... It is that our reader did while changing of the place the rack of direction

The steering shaft and its cardan are fixed by a bolt of 8 x 40 mm. The steering wheel is screwed onto the steering shaft with a simple 22mm nut.

An ingenious hydraulic lifting system

An ingenious hydraulic lifting system

The rear lift is screwed to the tractor frame by 8 x 10 x 60 mm bolts

The lifting arms consist of two openwork plates 290 x 50 x 8 mm and two other plates with bearings and drilled Ø 16 mm for the mounting of ball joints Ø 25 mm. The lift arms are mounted on the frame with single pins and 2 bolts 16 x 60 mm on the candles.

The clutch

The clutch

The clutch pedal is placed between two spacers (Ø8 mm inside) and 20 mm long.

The hydraulic reserve of 36 liters is made with a bin of 120 liters. Cut and sealed with a plastic sheet 5 mm thick. This one is previously equipped with a plug and necessary connections for the arrival (in the upper part) and the departure (in the lower part) of the oil before being glued (glue for windshield).

The gearbox

The gearbox

Taken on a diesel Golf, the gearbox is fixed to the chassis by two bolts of 8 x 30 mm and by four bolts of 8 x 60 mm. The disc with the cardan is placed at the same time.

The chain tensioner consists of three plates and a threaded shaft that can act on the tension.

The gearbox

The gearbox

The gearbox is controlled by a lever recovered on an R5. It is connected to the link of the box. Teflon tape is inserted into the cross member that supports the seat.

A cart engine
