My BIL, Fred is a member here, but hasn't posted. He may get active once winter gets here, but for now I have to post of his garden tractors. He's a green blooded guy, but I've learned to live with it. :smilewink: Anyway, he has a 212 and a 316 (repowered 317), but just a little over a week ago got a JD330, THEN Friday bought himself the cream of the crop....a JD430. I think his life is complete now! LOL Here are some pics. The 330 is down to install a new fuel pump, but otherwise is a great tractor.

Here is the 430, it's deck & the 316 (no pic handy of the 212):

He doesn't have many projects going on either. Here is A John Deere. First tractor he ever drove. Plus the first truck he ever drove and the 1st or 2nd car he ever drove. He finally pried them all loose from his Dad & plans to put them both back on the road eventually.

And here's his JD2020 farm tractor...traded from his Dad also. He traded his 2030(?) w/loader to his Dad for the 2020, plus drawed a hefty boot.

I've tried my best to get him off his butt to start some projects....as he doesn't have much to do!:bigrofl::bigrofl::bigrofl::bigrofl:Posted Image

No, I married HIS sister. Wish she were the 1st I ever dated!
And Fred has posted 2 times. Since I posted this thread, I'm sure he'll be along soon. His handle here is "Meangreen".

Haha- It rarely works that way. Maybe with cars and tractors like your BIL. I can't remember the first girl I dated. For that matter I don't remember the last one either..haha

He has some excellent projects there. I really like the 430.

I like Deeres, they just need to be white.
