Sadhaka Satyanatha blesses our newly restored 1981 Ford 4600, a 56-horsepower tractor.
Yes, we know the tractor looks like something only its mother could love, but just because some things are old does not mean that they were not well-build.
We did a lot of work restoring the bucket and getting it custom fit to the front-end loader. Now it runs just fine. In fact, it has a PTO feauture we wish we had on our newer machines.
This tracker is dedicated to mowing our noni field using this “Kickwheel Sidecutter” mower in front and a 7′ mower in the back (not yet attached.) It’s a very efficient setup for an orchard. The mower head runs out to the right of the tractor, allowing you to mow underneath the trees. The round mowing head has a rubber bumper, so that if it hits the trunk of a tree, it simple moves out of the way without doing any damage.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
