Last weekend was the huge tractor and engine show @ Boonville, Missouri.  The club has struggled with treatment of exhibitors for several years and seem to finally have things on the mend.  Didn't hear of any real problems and I personally had a great time.  The weather was HOT HOT HOT and dust was a problem at times although two water wagons were in nearly constant use. 

This was a Missouri regional show for the VGTCOA and I counted 76 tractors displayed in the area set aside just for garden tractors.  There is also a building just for Case equipment that included a few Case garden tractors AND several Deere L&G tractors were in the feature building as Deere was the feature.  With a few more garden tractors in the flea market there were easily 85-90 total.

This pic I took Saturday morning and a few more exhibitors came in afterwards.

This is the load I took.  I borrowed an F450 Super Duty diesel from work because I think my F250 gasser would have had a hernia pulling that load.   The 26 foot trailer had 9 riders and the 12 foot truck bed had 8 walk behinds for a total of 17.  There are more pics of the displays on the VGTCOA website under "shows and schedules" and "Boonville, MO"   Those pics were taken Friday morning before all the displays arrived. Everything on the white trailer is mine and all the walk behinds shown are mine as well.  ENJOY!

I think you must have used every inch of the trailer. Nice collection you have. So what all do you have on the trailer? I couldn't name them all.

In the truck I had:

 

'36 Standard Twin on steel w/plow

'52 Planet Jr. Super Tuffy w/cultivator

'72 Gravely C8 w/ rotary plow

'52  Little Farmer one wheeler w/disk

'47 David Bradley w/genuine DB air compressor, sulky, and dump rake

'52 Simplicity M1 w/24 inch rotary mower

'52 Choremaster w/reel mower

'50 Choremaster  "B" w/no attachment

 

When loading, I tried to take stuff I figured no one else would bring.  The D Bradley is common but the attachments really make it stand out so I took it and it was the only Bradley two wheeler there!  Another Planet Jr. Tuffy and a Super Tuffy did show up Saturday so there were some duplicates.

There was also another Struck Mini Dozer there Friday only. 

Someone said "you have a lot of tractors!" 

I said yeah,  I have about 80 more at home that wouldn't fit on this load.  :mad2:

Nice pics! I took my three "Modifieds" down, but haven't been able to post pics lately. I think it may be my slow internet connection, I'll keep trying! Booneville has a good show, just wish it was closer to home! ~~ Lowell

Nice collection and thanks for having about a hundred tractors. Now, I can tell the boss that I'm not the one with the biggest collection. She actually suggested that I build a shelter for my best GTs yesterday as everything is outside with covers.

 

What is the bright yellow jeep like machine in the bottom of the first machine? Good Luck, Rick

That is a Mayrath Deluxe.  Mayrath made grain augers and other farm implements for many years and for a while - tried their hand at a garden tractor but it didn't sell well.  They also offered "Standard" models that had no body.  They are VERY rare and there were two at the show.

Thanks for the pictures. All that variety makes for a fun day. Too bad it's so hot at all these shows.
