I love that 1212, and I love the one-does-all setup you've got going!

These are my workers. Try to keep them as busy as possible. The 446 does most the mowing now. 226 is the snowblower and plowing. The "grown up" 222 handles the cultivator, disc, and also plow.

Oh and the dog to the right is on stick duty.

Did you raise the 222 or add a 400 rear end,? Thanks

Added the 400 series rear with motor and also front axle. I had a pretty rough 446 with a broken rod and other missing parts so I figured why not. Notice the later model fenders.

My J D 300  mows every week, pulls a 12" plow thru my garden, and runs a 42" tiller in the garden too.  I also have a snow blower for it, can't wait until winter gets here so I can hook that up and use it!

What were those double sided plows intended for?, maybe opening up a ditch?

that's just a regular moldboard plow with a depth wheel in the picture.  I think the double sided plows are for hilling/furrowing.

This is my Cub 129. It mainly just does snow plowing. I also have a Cub cart for it.

Here is my Ford 80, our favorite tractor.  It does everything but mow, and looks ugly doing it.  I just got new tires for it, and spent more than the purchase price of the tractor.

It plows.

It cultivates.

It pushes snow.

I have also pulled a cart full of kids and harvested potatoes with my little Ford.  It is my primary gardening tractor.

My big orange rust bucket.

With a rear mount tiller. I take off the 3 point arms and it hooks in where the arms were.

My snow plow. Possibly a Gilson, with a frame I built as a teenager.

Starting to look a bit better. Still in pieces, but slowly getting there.

My "true" workers that I use regularly:

 

Allis 620 almost always has my 53" tiller mounted, as it is at the moment.

 

DSC00078.JPG

 

JD430 for mowing my home area.  This year has been mowing once every 3 to 4 days!

 

DSC00076.JPG

 

My HEAVILY modified Bush Hog JBI diesel conversion which does all my plowing.  This winter I will be installing rear PTO on this one so it will do ALL my garden duties, as well as plow day fun.

 

DSC00073.JPG

 

Then my prized worker that I could NOT get by without....my HEAVILY modified Massey Ferguson 1655 Diesel conversion dedicated to front end loader work.

Those are great Daniel. Why or how did the nose on the 1655 slope down? Is the rear lifted or front lowered or did you hve to raise the dash tower, just wondering?
