As I have been re-arranging things in the garage and sheds to get my latest Bolens aquisitions under shelter and out of the elements I got to wondering how you guys store your tractors?

 

Personally I hate to see anything sit outside so I try to keep everything indoors or at least throw a heavy duty tarp over things that need to be out.

 

So, How do you store the majority of your Collection? I guess I mainly posted this to see if there's others like me or if I'm just a complete nut for packing everything inside :D

I try to keep as much inside as possible but my brother and I have so much that some is still outside. Most of what we store outside is the rough tractors and tractors that are for parts.

Everything is inside, either in the barn or the garage.  Nothing sets out overnight , even if I am using it the next day.

The snow blower or the Mower is kept in the carport. I have an old semi trailer with the sides enclosed for a storage shed, It's a wood floor up off the ground and a good tight roof.

Last winter all but one GTs were inside. All but three implements were inside. Those outside were covered well. The new garage just isn't big enough. Roger.

Mostly inside, but a few attachments are outside; 54 blade, 3-pt Brinly disk & York rake. Just not enough space!   :(  :wallbanging:   ~~   Lowell

Everything Bolens is inside except for a couple of rusty attachments. Even the parts tractors are inside. Its easier to get parts off in the winter if needed. I've have one Simplicity walker outside I guess but its in pieces and not useable condition.

You can never have enough shed space. Been thinking about getting a couple of semi trailers to organize somethings. It would be easier to move them if I'd ever move again. :bounce:

My tractors are kept inside unless, they are part tractors. If they  have to go out side because lack of space a good tarp goes over them to protect them from the weather.

Little Deere, your are nuts!  Hoarder! :smilewink:  Seems excessive, but pretty. Besides, how can you get any down to mess with?  Would take half a day just for that.   I buy them after they have been sitting outside for years, so why not more???  I have most inside, but took over the 2 car House garage too now for drivers. Some come apart right away and are all over in garage and attic and wherever. I do have many old un-used decks and about 4 snow plows outside the garage along side ONE MTD under a plastic cover that it doesn't deserve.  Been trying to sell stuff to get more room. I have a big tiller, cultivator and disc and one blade laying on my driveway. Which ones you wanna come get??

Nothing sits outside here. If something had to consistently sit out, I would sell it first.

Most things are inside , most attachments are outside for now but I would like to clear a section under the eves of the garage and extend the roof for more protection to keep them there .  I  have 2 tractors under tarps but concerned that moisture  with come up from the ground and the tarps will trap it .

My shop is usually full of customer projects, but my treasures always find room.  We have an old wooden open front historical antique chicken coop that is packed full.  The only things that sit outside is what sat outside, like implements and machines without engines.
