Well- Every day I look here to see if anyone has written anything new, and there hasn't been a peep for what seems like forever. So, I have attached a picture of my favorite tractor with the hopes that everyone will follow my lead with one of their own.

I really don't know why it is my favorite. It has a backwards engine, is a little dirty, has a few tears in the seat, and the deck could use a touchup. But it starts everytime, mows like it should, doesn't burn any oil, and makes me smile everytime I get on it.

How about you?

I don't have any of these brands, but would like to have a smaller Case (a colt would be awesome!)if I can find one at a price I can afford. Surely member "hydriv" can add something to this thread!

I'm out too, no Ingy's here. I'd like to have one, but around here they are few and far between. On the occasion one shows up for sale, it usually fetches a pretty hefty chunk of change!

Hey if you build it they will come, might not be right away though LOL. As we grow we will get more and more Ingersoll guys here.

You guys need to totally ignore that mastifflawer dude. He's nuttin but a troublemaker of the first order. This was a nice, peaceful forum with nearly no traffic whatsover until he came along trying to shake things up with his Colts, Ingersoll and Case tractors. Some guys just can't let sleeping dogs lie.

I know if I can ever find one of those at a decent price I'm going to grab it.Those are't the only brand that has a " backward " engine.

Yep, there are several categories with not much traffic, but that will change. Very nice Ingersoll you have!
