Welcome aboard, you'll find lots of horse nuts around here. Sorry ya got ta moon-lite to make em meet, but I guess we all have done it, some of us still do. This is the first time I've ever not had two regular jobs and that's just cause things are really in the dumper locally. Getting a lot more of the "honey dos" done though which seems to make the climate a little better when I'm dragging home some more "inventory" for the collection. :D

Well, after lots of hesitation, I crawled out of bed at 330, to enjoy another day in paradise. This is what I see everyday. Sent from my 416-8

As a kid, I drank coke all the time. As a young man in the work force, I drank a dozen cans a day to keep up a manic pace. While i still drink your water and an occasional coke, Sugar runs in the family and I decided to more or less knock off colas, etc. now if you guys start making coffee :dancingbanana:

BTW, if you happen to know the whiz kid that came up with "New" Coke, get his phone number, I would love to tell him what a good idea that was... :rolling:

Thanks for the pics and the intro, :welcome: aboard.

Used to drink a lot of Coke, have cut back to a couple a week. But Had to laugh at the mention of "New Coke"! The Wife is not usually one to complain, but when New Coke came out she wrote a Scathing letter to Coke, stateing that if she wanted something that tasted like Pepsi she would buy from Pepsi. She got a letter back stating that the old formula would be in production again soon. And got coupons for two free 12 pks when it came back on the market.

That is a nice Allis 10HP, someone didn't do any justice to it with the paint brush. They are good little tractors with a good bit of power.

Those are great tractors, I have 2 B10s and a Big Ten. The paint is the wrong yellow but it looks clean. There is alot of attachments around for them. They are basically the same as the Simplicities of the time. How much is it?

The price seems high. I paid $150 for my not running Big Ten almost two years ago. It came with the mower deck, leaf vacuum, cart, and Leaf collection frame over the cart. I bought a plain nonrunning B10 that took a day to fix for $70 delivered. I also bought a B10 with a blown engine for $65 that has the hydraulic lift.

 

I bought a Simplicity 3012 for $100 that came with a snow plow, mower deck, earthcavator, and lawn conditioner. He loved these old tractors and gave me the deal because I already had some. He kept the best. The one on Tuesday is for parts to fix these. Shop around. If the B10 runs decent I'd go $150. Then more for each attachment.

 

Pictures will come. I still have to learn how to use the digital camera and download it.
