I picked up an 18HP Craftsman II with a trailer load of goodies.

Hopefully most of them will work on my SS/16 (except the snow thrower).

Tractor has a 3-point hitch and front bucket/tote. Fixed a wiring glitch and the PTO works great.
Mower deck has 2 new mandrels and newer blades.

Cultivator - needs the outer disks attached.

10" Plow. Steel weights (one is on the tractor)

Set of Brinley disks - may be setup wrong, all disks face the same direction

Two drag harrows - 3 rows and 2 rows

Snowblower.

Roto-spader and a bunch of extras. Need to investigate further.

The roto-spader had not been run in a few years. Put in some fresh gas and it started in 3 pulls.

Not pictured - chains, some extra parts and a 3" tall stack of manuals.

Wow, theres nothing you can't do with that one! You could have a different attachment on it every day of the week, and then some! :thumbs: Very nice.

Tractor runs great, however the previous owner told me that the engine burns quite a bit of oil - several ounces per hour.

I saw a bit of smoke, but not enough for the oil consumption.

Nice score! Would love to have the 3-point, as they are so handy.

I do have it on the 8N Ford Tractor that has 22 horse (kind of a over grown GT).

Looks like the mother lode there. I see it's a six speed, too! Congrats!

Is there much difference between this GT and the FF (besides gear vs hydro)?
The sheet metal is a bit thinner, but appears to have the same transmission as the ST/16 from the 70s.

There's a whole lot of difference from this GT18 and the FF. First off the FF is similar in appearance to my GTV/16. The hydro has 6 bolt wheels. Hydraulic lift. Just to name a few!

Hey Dwayne, nice score you got yourself there. Lots of neat stuff.
You're going to need a bigger shed soon, to keep all your recent aquisitions in.

Funny - someone had the same question in another topic. Nothing like a few pictures to help clarify:

I missed this when you posted, saw it but didn't have time to study the pics until now.

Really, really, nice collection of implements. Glad you're giving them a good home.

Getting ready for winter, I tried to hook up the blade but figured out that it's from a narrow frame cub cadet.
Looking at the pieces that came with the plow, I'm not sure I have enough to make it work.
