If we were to all report what GT brands are common in our individual area, could it be compiled into a map so that folks would know where to best look for a particular brand? Would this even be useful?

Pennsylvania would look like a "The Works" Pizza.

So would  my area.  I've got 8 different brands in my shop, Brother has two more brands in his shop.  All were available locally. 

The exception being the Massey Executive.  I seem to have the only in this area.   Rick

I don't have any to report from south central Texas, I have to import all mine from the other 47 lower states!!

 

Mostly from the Midwest and East coast.

It's hard to define common. I'd say vintage GT's of any brand are hard to find here.

In my area, I would say, Bolens, WH, JD, and Sears are relatively common.

Here the most common are Wheel Horse and Cubs. While they are not the most common of the brands, the population of power kings seems to be higher in the northeast then anywhere else!

"Tractor Map"?  Sorta like the demographic maps the telemarketers use to make yet more annoying calls?

 

"No, I don't want to sell it!"  "No, I don't want to sell it!"  "No, I don't want to sell it!"  "No, none of 'em are for sale!"  "You want what?"  "No, I don't want to sell it!" "No!  It's not for sale... and how did you know I had a Pitney-Bose 'Grass Master XL' anyway?" "Map?  What kinda map?  I'm calling the police..."

One of those maps with little pointers like on the personal page could be made up?  Could have diff color flags for diff brands?  Wouldn't need to put in your name I don't think, or would they need something?   There is a site for those maps somewhere, don't know where or how to set-up or if free or anything........Guess.........I Don't Know Anything!!! Never Mind! :wallbanging:  :(
