I would like to share my Ariens GT19 with all of you. I purchased it this summer about 290 miles away from where I live. I found it on Craig’s list where it was advertised with a 48” snow blower, cab, weight box, and a 60” mowing deck. It needed lots of TLC. The first thing I found was that it wouldn’t stay running to get it on the trailer. I noticed when I first was looking at it that the bottom of the cab behind the seat was over the fuel cap and the globe was missing from the cap. I ran the tractor off some fuel that the owner had in a can and took it home. I drained the tank and flushed it out after removing it. Word to the wise watch the fuel cap andAriens_Snow_1.jpg

Well I guess I'll throw my hat in the ring.

DSCN1788.jpg

This is my 1994 Wheel Horse 314. There's not a lot of back story to tell about it though. It belonged to my wifes grandparents, and when they passed on, we bought their house from the estate, and this came with the deal. For several years it was used for mowing only.
There was also a snow/dirt blade that was sitting in the back corner of the barn when we bought the place. I knew that it was for a Wheel Horse, but also knew that there was a lot of parts missing from it, including the mounting hardware and the hand lever for pivoting the blade.
Last year when I started really getting into GT's, I thought it might be fun (and a real labor saver) so I dragged the plow out of the corner and fabricated some mounting hardware. I had no idea what the mounts were supposed to be like, so I just made it work.
I also fabricated the pivot lever out of a piece of 1/2 rigid conduit and some bicycle brake parts that I had lying around.
I Bought a JD112 that a friend found for me when I said I was looking for some wheel weights and chains. The Deere came with 2 sets of 35 Lb weights (one JD, one IH) and a decent set of 4 link cleated chains...and thats what provides the traction on the rear.
So that's the story...It's not real pretty, but we had record breaking levels of snowfall last year and I sure was thankful to have it!

Here is where we stand. I can't bend the rules and wait for updates to be made a couple days from now. We currently have 11 nominations. There are 3 that don't abide by the rules. If the 3 that don't abide by the rules don't update their nomination they will be removed. We will accept two more nominations that follow the rules stated in the first post of this thread. After we receive two more this thread will be closed. I will give the guys that nominated their tractors first but not properly till 12 midnight to fix what they are missing. If that doesn't happen the other substitutes will be put in place.

Here are the ones that need their nominations changed:
man with many tractors -> You need a pic of your nomination with some sort of snow / winter attire.
vin122 -> You need a pic of your nomination with some sort of snow / winter attire.
kwj427 -> You need at least a 2 paragraph description.

This is my 1974 mf12g. I bought it about 4 years ago with carb problems. The engine has been rebuilt and new carb installed. I found some 26x12x12 Carlisle Super Lugs at a garage sale and decided to replace the original 23x8.5x12's with them. I had to raise and tub the seat pan to get them to fit. It has 55 pound wheel weights on the outside of each wheel and 80 pounds on the insides. The tires are also loaded with windshield washer/deicer fluid and wrapped with chains.
I also use this tractor to drag logs & firewood out of the woods, plow gardens, and pull trailers or about anything else I can hook a chain to. Love this tractor!DSC01060.jpg
