Last spring I promised myself and the better half to get rid of atleast 30 tractors. Then a freebie came my way, we arranged for two to come from LA and an LGT 145 that I just couldn't pass up came along. So, far not too bad. Then last week on Craigs list was an ad that offered the remainder of a Simplicity collectors stash. I guessed who it was and called him. He had been very nice and helpful when my son and I got into Allis Chalmers B10s 7 years ago. I bought it all and have brought home three loads so far. He even through in the frame from his Cover It garage.

The big tractor is 18hp with a hydro with three sets of wheelweights. It is made up from a couple of tractors. The small 725 has wheel weights and the counterweights on the rear hitch. It has a 48" plow that was adapted. The trailer shows what I brought home this evening. We didn't unload because it was raining  There are 3 blowers, a moldboard, a front mount flail, a homemade front bucket frame, a homemade rear grader blade and a counterweight with two donuts. The stuff under cover is various parts driveunits, chains, belts, a weight box, and alot of miscellaneous. There is still about 7 loads to go. I need to find a tarp for the garage frame but nothing around here is the right size.  Enjoy the pictures and be glad you haven't ODed. Good Luck,  Rick

 

The third pic is a tractor front jack that he made out of a trailer jack. He is very clever.

Well, that certainly wasn't 1 step back...

That's about 10 leaps forward..

Congrats. Lots of goodies there.

Probably but, only after I have sorted it out. I already have 6 B series tractors and want to set up the attachments with them. There is a 42" blower and cab for the 18hp tractor and I'll want to try it this winter. If I can get it running.

I'm lucky the wife lets me get away with it. I still do intend to get rid of most of the RERs and LTs this year. Then I'll fix and get rid of the cubs and the deeres. Maybe the Snapper 1600 and the MF6 too. I've got to try to clean all this up because I really need to fix my AC HD6G. The to do list just gets longer. Now that I'm forced into retirement, I seem to be farther behind. Good Luck, Rick

Nice! I believe I've seen all that before. Is Elon getting out of GTs altogether?

Yes he is and I feel bad about it. He wants nothing more than a push mower for the lawn and his Jeep for the snow. They are moving to a smaller house. I asked about a Homesteader grill but he only had a homemade B series grill. There are alot of homemade attachments. It will be interesting to sort through. Good Luck, Rick

...There is still about 7 loads to go...

 

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that has problems even touching the wagon, let alone staying on it.... besides it's a lot more fun to fall off it than to climb back on....
