  • Hey Tim, Way back on July 20th you posted a message asking for 9NBN owners. I responded on the 24th, but haven't heard anything more. Do you have a 9NBN? What manuals do you have? Are they 9NBN specific, or just 9N manuals like in the archives? As I said, I am looking for the dimensions to build a frame.

  • HiYa Kent-
    No, I do not have a 9NBN Model, yet. I was looking for the owner of the one we have pictures of in our library. I think it said he was located in New Zeeland. I know 'Paladin' well, and he has an extensive collection of early 9Ns; Moto-Tugs, and an Industrial or two. He is a very busy man, teaches high school (maybe some college too), so he doesn't get on this board much. Here is one of the few manuals we do have in our library on the Industrial Model...

  • Hi Tim,
    I didn't think you had ever mentioned having a 9NBN (yet).
    I have also tried to contact the guy in New Zealand. I looks like he has the most virgin 9NBN in captivity. Tractor Rod has his business card, and gave me the contact information, but I have since misplaced it. I had no luck contacting him at the time. I'm sure Rod still has it on his bulletin board though.
    Good luck in your efforts, and please let me know if you make contact with him. I would really like to get some exact measurements.

  • Here is one I found for Bob Johnson AKA Paladin (Bob in Pa). You might want to do a search and try to email him. If I remember correctly from when we picked it up the side pieces were 4" channel. You can't really see the back because of the welded plate on top.
    If I remember correctly it had a front mounting plate similar to the mount plate on my winch tractor and was mounted in the rear under the axle using the lower arm 3pt connection.
    You would probably have to weld up some angles on wider channel for the back and front.

  • Here is a homemade frame out of 6" beefed up channel.
