We all like to go to various tractor shows throughout the year, both near and far. Why? Because we like to look at all the different types of garden tractors that were made, and to see what brands still exist. I realize there is a photo gallery on this site, and I know there are individual brand listings for you to post your brand of tractor in a certain thread. But, since there isn't just a thread for various types of garden tractors on one post, I thought we could start one.

 

So, with this said, post some pictures of your restored 1 wheeled, 2 wheeled, 3 wheeled, or four wheeled garden tractors, so that members can see all of the various tractor shapes, colors, models, and brands all on one post. Maybe post a rough time frame as to when you acquired the tractor, when you restored it, and about how much time you spent on getting it to look as good as it does. Maybe even explain if the tractor is completely original as far as parts go, or if you had to go looking for replacement parts in order to complete it. Please do not give dollar amounts as to how much it cost you to restore the tractor or for how much you paid for replacement parts.

 

I will start another post for the worker tractors, so please keep this one for show tractors only.  

 

Looking forward to seeing what you guys have, so post away!  :thumbs:

I Don't have pics of my David Bradley walk behind on my iPad here but it is the only GT restoration I started and completed. Sad but true is the fact that it was my very FIRST garden tractor, and the requirement for original parts for it snowballed into additional tractors and therefore I have yet to finish any other restoration I ever start.............

Here's two I have redone within the past couple years.  Both are complete tear-downs, and have original engines, and necessary mechanical updates (steering, bushings, bearings, etc).

 

1965 Allis Chalmers Big Ten with B-1 Loader (first variety L-10)
