The Buckley show is coming up soon and I've been getting my tractors ready to go.
Normally I bring one out and wash it and then put it back in the garage and bring out the next one.
Today I decided to line them up on the drive and wash them all at one time.
This is the first time that I've had them all out at the same time ( other than at shows ) so it was an excellent opportunity to take some photos.

Awesome lineup Ray!
I should drag some of my stuff out for pics.. Always before the grass would grow and I'd have to move them to mow every week or two. Thats definately not a problem this year - The grass is all dead and I haven't mowed since early May. :mecry:

Very nice (and colorful) collection!
Your signature has 9 tractors, and I only saw 7 in the line-up....I know the Bolens Ridemasters, but what are the others?

I have a 48 Ridemaster that is running but un-restored and washing it wouldn't make a bit of difference so it isn't in the photo.
The other missing tractor is a 47 Ridemaster that is in the process of being restored but isn't finished yet.

Inventory from left to right :
JD Lindeman, Agricat, Shaw Du-all, R/T tractor, Ridemaster cart, FMC Bean cutler & Ridemaster.
