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?? 

I have an old Allis Chalmers fork lift that takes care of the getting down

you can see it here in this pic

My collection is limited to what fits inside.  The wife would have a cow if anything had to sit around outside.

At home, three running tractors are in the garage (but no cars.)  One parts tractor is outside.  Most implements are outside.

 

At the farm, I have no out buildings.  So two tractors, a go-kart, and a rototiller are all tarped.  I need a big equipment shed, and a barn, and a chicken coop, and...

My garage is only 24 feet by 14 feet, and what ever is in there is normally what I am working on. I have a portable garage, but it is mostly full of tires right now. Unfortunately, I have several tractors that are sitting outside right now. I need a barn!
