:welcome: to GTTalk.
Looks like an interesting collection. I see some sears parts, a Bolens, WH... Are there any back stories?

Thanks for joining up and thanks for the pics.

The orange tractor was my first tractor, I'm not very certain on the year but I know it's a Jacobsen 800 Chief.

The black one is a Wheel Horse, I'm guessing by the looks maybe late 60's?

I then have the silver Craftsman RT-10, I did some research and that is a 1977.

The last two are projects mostly, the bright green being a Sears Roper RT-10, and the tractor on the end a newer Yard Man Hydro.

 

Thanks for asking!  :smilewink:

WELCOME. Is the tractor with the pan seat and black hood a Jacobsen? :wave:

Yes indeed it is, The hood is not original sadly I just used spare parts to fix the tractor, I made my own custom hood bracket hold system. Works pretty well!

Welcome, as has been said a interesting herd of tractors we would like more info on them.

 

Well thanks Tin, The orange tractor is a Jacobsen Chief 800, not sure exactly of the year, but i'm guessing early 70's? 

The black tractor is a Wheel Horse, I believe a 500.

The silver tractor is a 1977 Sears Craftsman RT-10.

Bright green tractor is a Sears Roper RT-10.

And last but not least the hood less tractor on the end is the Hydro 'Yard Man' made by Craftsman!

 

Thanks for asking buddie!  :thumbs:

Looks like some great old iron there with lots of potential. I'm with MH what are the back stories on your machines ? Welcome to the club.

The orange & black tractor was my first, I've had it almost six years now, still has the original motor. 8 HP Kohler!

Still running strong, that's my baby  :smilewink:

 

The black Wheel Horse was my second tractor, saved it from the scrapper, it doesn't have the original motor so that knocks the value a bit. It's running a 8 HP Kohler aswell.

 

The silver 77' Sears Craftsman RT-10 runs a 10 HP Briggs & Stratton (from what I was told)..

 

The bright green Sears Roper runs a 10 HP that I got from a friend, not really sure what brand it is but man does it run good!

 

Last but not least the Hydro runs a 15 HP Kohler Command Pro!

 

Thanks for your interest, Old Iron.  :rocker2:
