The new Component Tractor got a completely new homemade 25CrMo4 tube frame with a new homemade 25CrMo4 rollcage, a Rockwell rear axle housing, a self built hydraulic steering and a new constructed drawbar.
The aluminium sheet metal work around the new frame and the Valtra hood were mostly done by the Team in the workshop of the company called ``W&M Engineering", in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. After all the sheet metal work was finished, the hood, the fenders and all the sheet metal parts went to Spuiterij Gerrits B.V from Vaassen to get the paintjob. The whole chassis will receive his paintjob in the end of the year.
The rear wheels on the new tractor are a set of used Midwest aluminium rims with cut Firestone 24.5 x 32 All Traction Puller tires. The Midwest rims with the Firestone Puller tires were purchased from the Mud Patrol Pulling Team from Alphen, in the Netherlands.
In the new drivetrain they are using a SCS reverser with a homemade drive shaft from the reverser to the clutch, a 11" inch 3 disc Crower centrifugal clutch with a homemade steel fly wheel and a Mr. Gaskett steel clutch bell housing.
The most of the parts for the rear axle and the drivetrain bought the Dutch Team from John van Alphen (Popeye Pulling Team) in Bladel.
The Dutch Team will compete on all Dutch Championship rounds and on some other Pulling events in Europe this year.
The official maiden voyage of the new Valtra Limited Super Stock Tractor is planned for the 4th of May 2019 at the NTTO National Pull in Oud Gastel, the Netherlands.
