Hi all from Ohio. Just found this site and thought I'd share my tractor. It's a 2712 with the optional hitch and hydraulic lift. It came with the mid blade and a nice mower deck which I'm going to sell/trade for parts that I want. I'm going to fix it up and show it at the local tractor show. It's also going to plow snow from my driveway and haul the kids in our trailer.

Welcome Mark-Glad to see you made it. You will like it here. I think there are three of us Colt owners now. We will be staging a take over any time.

I have been working on Maynard (Mjodrey) to go with Colt, but he is leaning toward an older Case. When he sees what you have planned for your 2712 he may change his mind...

Welcome to GTtalk first off and that is a nice 2712 you got there. I think mastifflawyer and hydriv are planning on a takeover and for Case/Colt to own everyone :D

Hahaha! Yea, she's pretty quiet. :)

I've tucked it away in the back corner of the garage until I find an engine for it. I've been working on my other tractors so the Colt is still the way it was in that picture other than cleaned up. I can't wait to get it running. I did stick an old Wisconsin on it for a few days just so I could drive it, but I took it back off.
