I currently have and use a 1980's LT10 and a 1970 SS12. Only one runs right now, the other sits dead in my parents garage. The LT10 is my first tractor, has been nothing but abused since I bought it, and now in the last year has been babied. I have put a lot of work into it and every keeps telling me its a waste since it's so light duty. But I say, lets see one of those new pieces of plastic push snow like I can, lets see them level 8yards of black dirt with out a break down or cracked plastic. Then there's my SS12, my little monster. It out pushes, out pulls and out-blows head gaskets like any tractor I have operated of similar size. The blown head gasket is it's current reason for not running. Unfortunately the guy on eBay with them, has not answered our calls or emails all month so I'm thinking of making my own copper head gasket.
Here's some pictures, I'm sure they are worth more than a 5 paragraph essay on my sears tractors. (the hood is now painted meadow green on my SS12) I'm a big Oliver fan.
