The Fiat 130 C looks around the same sort of size as a D6 D or maybe a D5 B, have never seen one though

Dad bought a new 605 Fiat crawler for farm use that looked similar to the 655 shown, it was a real good machine for its time and never did a lot of work

Also interesting to see the drive train to get the middle set of wheels to go in the same direction as the other four, or am I missing something? :?

Hi Norman,
If it was gear driven there would be a problem. :?
With the chain drive all three sprockets will turn in the same direction. :thumbup:
They probably had to lift its toes to turn it in soft ground rather than skid it anyway. :think:

Hi Fred
I looked at that but the chain looks as though it runs over the axle of the middle set of wheels which would turn them in the opposite rotation assuming its 6 wheel drive unless the top run of the chain drives the middle set some how. Can't get me head round it. :? :?
