The header came off easily and the machine and header were stored inside a barn. The canvass drapers were taken off and rolled up. I actually pulled a machine like this a JD model 30 hillside machine with a Cat diesel 50 crawler. It took a heavy tractor to hold it when going down a slight down hill. I still have the book for the JD machine.
Mattias, 3 point hitch was a rarity to find on a tractor up til maybe 20 years ago when the newer models of utility tractors started showing up with it. Up til then the only ones I saw were the little Ford 8 and 9Ns. When my Dad bought the McKee snowblower we looked long and unsuccessfully for a suitable tractor with three point and ended up building one to fit the Cockshutt 40 we already had in the shed. No cab of course but we dress up warm and if its really bad out there, just wait for it to warm up.
The 2010 in the picture did not come with factory 3 point. The owner built his own from various parts and it worked just fine.
