what pettibone skidder do I have
« on: August 30, 2017, 10:17:33 pm »
Hi all!..New to this site and have a rather simple question I think. I saw this real nice size, Pettibone skidder, with a seized 3-53 and bought it for a small price. The engine doesn't bother me as my shop has been a Detroit dealer for over 50 years and myself, have rebuilt many. My sons and I will have fun rebuilding this machine and using it on our property. Nice guy I bought it from says it's a Master 6 speed skidder, about a 1966, but I have only found one picture online that looks like it, now cannot find it again. It has a unique look, which without pictures may give away what it is and approx. year. The thing is that the rams that raise the blade mount strait up and down. The engine cover/hood is actually a 3-53 power unit sheet metal.What is it? I cannot find a tag expect for National Iron Works div of Pettibone. What winch is it? What trans?Axles? I don't see any tags on anything, believe me I looked!

Another thread, most certainly worth reading.
