So, as the year winds down and the media babbles about pop culture for 2013, I thought it would be neat to share what 2013 held for you....in terms of your L&GT wish list (everybody's got one).

I scratched off a late entry today, and then realozed how good the year truly was to me! Some folks bring home trailer loads of 'stuff', but what tractors, attachments & accessories you have always wanted or spent forever searching for that came home to roost?.

Got my dads Homelite running well, many attachments for it and rear tiller that actually works well. Added two more tractors (LTs) to the garage, a 71 True Value Lawn Chief, (needs steering fixed, a 2010 Troybuilt Pony 42" LT that was a late year accquisition. Hoping next year I can get the sleeve hitch made for the Homelite and gaet the deck finished. Looking forward to bringing home a Simplicity 7112 in the new year. Have only seen it once but it looks good. Supposed to run. No price as of yet but will push for it. Roger.

Roger...I brought home a 912H this year, too!  Only had it for a day.  The farmer that allows us to park our 'hunting trailer' on his place wanted a machine that I felt good about giving him, and so I grabbed it up in Kalamazoo, gave it a quick afternoon of maintainance and dropped it off to him in Big Rapids the next day.  It's a peach...if he ever decides to let it go, I'll keep you in mind!

I know where one is sitting but I can never get there when he is open. It has a front blade and a mowerdeck. Thanks. I don't know why but they are just so darn apealing. Roger.

Still haven't found out if an Electric Tractor can hold it's own at a Plowday event.

I tried 2x

1st time it broke the transmission

2nd time was questionable. ???

I got a couple questions answered for me about the beginning and end of the Elec-Trak project  , I forgot I was still looking for the answers .  A formal write-up of the history is still on track . ( not by me ) ..   But there still are a few loose ends . Always next year for more .

There was no 7000 series Duetz-Allis, Duetz came in late into the 900/7100 series around 1985

The one I picked up is ridable, from a standing position.  It was built by Kalamazoo Manufacturing.  There's a post on it here somewhere.  best I can tell, she's a '53.

 

Yes, that is the forklift I've been hassling a few folks over.  I passed on one in 2012 (On a very nice, running B-1, to boot), and have kicked myself ever since (no $$, no time to fetch it).  The one pictured is Jon Mol's...he has a gorgeous collection, and bought his forklift off ebay, incomplete, and it really, really rough shape.  He does  abang up job on his restorations, including reporduction fabrication.

I've seen his collection at the Wellington, OH show.

 

He has a lot of really interesting 'goodies'.
