... and then realozed how good the year truly was to me!

 

Wow!  You're not kidding.  You did have a heck of a year. :dancingbanana:

Just this past year's purchases would make a collection to be proud of.

 

 

 

I didn't pick up any new tractors this past year but I wasn't really looking for anything either.  No room for more at this point. 

I did get a good deal on some almost new Carlisle All-Trails this past spring and just picked up a Brinly 3-pt plow recently.

Nothing big here either. A busy year . I did manage to get a frame up restoration of a JD317 finished except for a few details. I was out of time and room this year. Maybe next year!

I bought a nice cub original this year and my ariens gt17.

The ariens is going up for sale in the spring for 500 bucks and going to look for another cub to use for my weekly grass cutting. Or maybe I'll use the pk.

I don't really have any dream tractors. If something catches my eyes I go for it. But I don't go looking for particular models.

Yep I would say you had a good year too.  Not too much happening for me, the B-112 and tiller I got this spring for my brother to use is coming back but that was about all.

 

My world would be complete if I can find, afford, and get to:

 

Simplicity 725 with serial number on engine(original) real close to my birth day (Sep-7-1961)

Sickle mower attachment

Rotary brush

I'll keep my eyes peeled!  You're right up near 'deer camp', and I have a line on 66.6667% of your wish list right now.  Actually, depending on condition, maybe 100%.  PM me...

I picked up a closed side Ford 145 (no motor) with 165 skins, swapped off the sheet metal and rubber on my black and beaten 100, and then traded the remaining chassis and sheet metal to Firstgensho for an open side 165 rolling chassis.

I acquired a Noma Park 2000E with a good engine( dead starter) and rusted out seized deck. Swapped out the 12hp Tech for a BS 15.5, and modified a deck from a 48" mtd deck, and use it as my main mower for now.

I acquired a 48" Ford trip blade and a spare set of rims and rubber from the aforementioned buddy in exchange for a good running ford mower deck. Thanks Tom and Dad.

That's all I acquired this year, other than 700.00 worth of steel for the project.

 nice to hears some folks got project work accomplished...maybe my problem with projects, is that nothing gets completed because I have too much coming in to deal with :wallbanging:

 

Jim, we might have to work out a trade for that Brinly 3pt plow.  I could put together a bang-up case of beer for it! :beer:

I hadn't planned on posting here, but then decided to look at just what all I did get in 2013.
 
Looks like it was a LOT, plus a lot of travelling to get it all.
 
Here's the list and locations:

Bolens 1886-01 with Forklift attachment. (local)
Rear 540 PTO atttachment for the Bolens Large frames. (delivered to house)
Not a tractor, but a new 7'x 14' trailer for hauling tractor goodies. (Frankfort, OH)
Bolens EK7 with Snowcaster. (Willard, OH)
Another 'not a tractor', but upgraded my Road Trip vehicle to a 1999 36' Winnebago. (Ringgold, GA)
Reel mower for EK7. (Central MI)
Brinly 3-pt plow. (McDonnel, PA)
15" Dual Wheel Kit for the Bolens Large Frames. (Central WI)
Brinly TT-100 Tool Bar, and a Brinly HH-1000 3-Pt "A" Frame Adapter. (Local)
Bolens 1250 with Haban 415A Sickle-Mo attachment. (Bedford, PA)
Another Brinly 3-pt plow. (Akron, OH)
Hard cab for the Bolens Large Frames. (Edenton, NC)
Haban 514A Flail-Mo for the Bolens Large Frames. (Delivered to house)
NOS 12v Bolens Weed Whacker that mounts on various Bolens tractors. (eBay, delivered)
Brinly 3-pt Disc. (Semi-local)
Sweepster Transporter Body for the gear driven Bolens Tube Frames. (Cato, NY)
Lighted Bolens Clock/Sign. (Cato, NY)
Bolens 1886-01 with 54" deck (this was the 1st Large Frame deck I've gotten) (Cato, NY)
32" Gannon Earthcavator that mounts on the Bolens Tube Frames. (Near St. Louis, MO)
York Whirly Rake for the Tube Frame Bolens. (Central OH)

With all the traveling, we put right at 10K miles on the 'new' motorhome, and other than bringing it back from GA, almost of that was tractor and tractor related trips.

Looks like 2013 was a VERY good year.

Kinda looking forward to 2014 to see what that brings :D :D :D

2013 was a great year for me too. For starters my wife delivered our first baby boy (3 kids in 3.5 years!)!!

But back to tractors; this year i really got into GT's.

 

I sold my 682 Cub to fund a FEL project, I'll miss ol' red.

I bought a JD 140H3.

I finally found a 3pt tiller for my Kubota:

I also found a tractor that I believe will make a good FEL tractor. It's a JD400 with a Yanmar (gas) 3cyl engine.

Picked up two Wheel Horse GT14's:

Also bought and sold a few:

List for 2014:
-Finish FEL project

-Find a solid Cub Original

It's amazing when you start to thing about just HOW MUCH stuff a guy can grab in a year's time!  I can't befin to make a comprehensive list...I was just thrilled to trim so much of my actual Wish List.  For me it has to be a self-sustaining hobby, or it would be a no-go.  Looks like my last transaction of 2013 was wrapped up today (just parts), and I will end up behind by about $240, on top of the equipment I brought in to keep.  I have a 3016 Ingersoll here that would have put me ahead, had I gotten around to taking some pictures and selling it.

 

But yes, 2014 looks promising, and will start off with some long awaited project work!

I forgot to add a couple.

 

A "Hand Speed Control Kit" for the Bolens HT18 and HT20.

 

Then another 1250 that I want to put my Sweepster broom on, and an H14 that I can use with the EZ-Vac.
