Lets see your orphans or oddball garden tractors. The tractors nobody's ever heard of or seen. here's a few of mine. First is the moto mower 6000. Found this tractor in the back of a barn covered up. Still has the original emblems. This is my first true (barn find) tractor. The next is the standard Walsh. It came with the 4 original attachments. (plow, cycle mower, disk, harrow). Buzz coil ignition. Crank start. And the last is my amf 10 hp. Picked this one up at Portland fall swap meet. Gona be on the resto list. Those are just a few of mine. Lets see yours.

Orphans and oddballs are my favorite part of the hobby. Here is my AMF AMFTRAC 1414. It is a completely different animal then even other AMF tractors. Most AMF models had counter parts badged as other brands. The 1414 did not,it is a stand alone model with a different frame,transaxle,etc than any of the other AMF tractors ( including the 1014 ). This tractor is serial number 6. It needs went thru and spruced up but it is a strong runner. Its shaft driven with hydro lift and had an optional CAT.0 3 point and rear PTO shaft.

 Here is a couple pics of the 1952 Standard 3000 that I restored for my son Danny. It was my childhood tractor, and had been in the family for over 30 years now.  My avatar is actually a picture of myself, and my family around it in the early 80's.

The zero turn I don't have very much info on other than its from Ram Industries. Came out the same time Dixon did. The 3 wheeler is called a stomper 200. Has a 5hp Tecumseh engine on it with a comet 55 series torque converter on it. early to mid 70's? The last is called a turf trac. Its simply a MTD 990 just rebadged.

Here is my oddball. It is a National mower, from what I can find I think it was built sometime in the early to mid sixties and it was the largest model that National produced. The cutting width is 84" which is accomplished by the three mounted reel mowers. Since I have owned it I have only seen a handful of pictures of mowers as old as mine and most people have no clue what it is when they first see it.

Here is an oddball for sure.  I believe it is homemade mostly because it has hydraulic brakes and it is incredibly overbuilt.

I have a couple for Y'all.

 

The first one is my Montgomery Wards Squire 6 built by Bolens. It's a Bolens 600 with different sheet metal. I am currently restoring it and hope to finish it one of these days. It was originally gold and white.
