Going to take better photos of my herd, I think I got the sickness that I have read about. Re: old tractor love. It all started with a cheaply made John Deere lt110 the ones that you get from lowes or home depot. biggest pile of junk ever made. That thing kept me busy during the winter just trying to keep the belt on and or keep it from slipping, by the time I fixed that a cable or something else would give out. So I decided that I was going to restore an old tractor and put it to work instead. OMG night and day difference these older tractors maybe clunky compared to the new ones but they preform well and get the job done. My simplicity 3212 first one love love love it. I then got a hold of a 3415H with a snow blower and a 46 inch deck. Have not restored this one (yet) but I got hydros for it that I will use for a lift as my wife loves the hydro drive.
The 3 sears i just picked up was mainly for the snow blower and plow. not sure if I will ever use the sickle bar mower. I just wanted the tractor it was attached to and the guy would not separate so had to buy all 3.
My wheel horse c-120 is fully restored new stickers and all my wife asked me why do I use it after all that has been done to it ...because I dont restore these things to sit ...its back to work boys enjoy your second life.
This is why I need snow blowers and plows.....lol
