So this is related to garden tractors and all, but its sort of a diffrent hobby. Who else out there collects vintage garden tractor literature?

 

I dont have a great big collection. (yet)

 

I do have a

1963 simplicity brochure that covers everything from the 725 to self propelled tillers

1962 bolens brochure covering the 600 and late rid amtic threw chainsaws

Mid 70s montgomery wards brochure covering there tractors and attachments.

Mid 60s jacobson brochure

Pennsylvania meteor post card

Bolens ridamatic post card

5 or  6 Montgomery ward catalogs dating from 1942 up to 72

And lots of old magazine add clippings bought from swap meets.

 

Im suprized at how the older brochures from the 60s had so much color printing and pictures in them.

I'm guilty. The paper can be as addicting as the tractors themselves!

The ones I like are the old ads found in magazines. I think we have about 20 of them framed and hanging in the office. I like seeing the old manuals too but they are just as good in digital form and take up less space :D
