My younger brother and I are expecting some new to us tractors sometime in the near future we hope. Mine is the 916h and my brother's is the 716-6 on the rear. Posted Image
They are loaded up and ready to travel but are waiting for my older brother to get time to bring then Down to LA from IN. Included in the deal is a 16 hp Briggs engine, two 42" mowers and a mounted tiller. And the PO threw in a spare engine and extra starter for my brothers Briggs powered tractor.

Good to see that the Briggs are going to some folks that can appreciate them Phil. I'm sure Ron was glad to see them go. :smilewink:

Y'all got some nice tractors there! :orangecool:

I think Ron was. He was pretty kind to us and held the tractors for at least two months. He even threw in a starter because he did not like the sound of the one on the tractor when he loaded up the trailer. That, I consider real service especially for an "as is" sale. I think he would have done that anyway but I am sure that the summer drought and economy has cut into his business a good bit. I think things are picking up for him as of late. Ron has always been very patient with me and forgiving of my many inquiries. I wish him a very snowy winter!

Well, they are AC's, isnt that enough? Actually, we are kinda nuts. Allis Chalmers fed each us for 18 plus years and over time our blood turned Persian orange.

If I wanted JD or CC the woods are full of the down here but AC and Simplicity garden tractors are scarce in the deep south and practically non existent in Louisiana. To get my first tractor 4-5 years ago I had to drive 1500 miles round trip to Missouri to bring back a Simplicity when what I really wanted was an AC. When I got wind of my older brother coming down to Louisiana to pickup a bush hog rotary mower I asked him if he would mind transporting some garden tractors instead of doing a dead head to Louisiana. I have been lusting for one of Ron's tractors for years but couldn't seem to justify the high costs of transportation. I intend to give my older brother my AC B112 in apprciation, for his efforts.

Phil, I can't wait for your first post after using that rear tiller! You're gonna love that attachment for dang sure! And your brother's "Briggs powered tractor" Isn't that 716 a Kohler, or does he have another tractor, or yet again, are you speaking of the B112 tractor you're sending home with him?

At first I thought LA was Los Angeles, CA then I thought Louisiana...I knew there was more to this story than a 'GT' but it's still cool...Good Luck

Jim's "new" tractor is a 716 with a Briggs. He absolutely did not want a Kohler. Dick, my older brother from Indiana , will be gifted my B112 which is running better than ever just as I am pushing her out the door. I am not new to the rear mounted tiller. We had one on our B1 when I was a kid and it would whip up a seed bed that you would sink ankle deep in. I still like plowing (southern) best.

Phil; I think Daniel means you will love the tiller on a hydro lift tractor with hydro drive. Full speed on engine and creep along makes a beautiful seedbed in one pass and no aches in the left bicep from lifting tiller.LOL Dave
