Hey, I can't help the timing  :rocker2:

 

I had to wait a while, for a decent Uship deal to work out, but I was able to have a handfull of tractors and attachments brought home from the East Coast today.  I'm pretty thrilled with all of them.  The Homelite T-16H has been on my list for a long, long time, and this one is prestine in my book.  The Porter Cable Wards has been only a dream on my list of Garden Mark machines for a long time...glad to add this broze to my other Wards tractors.

 

Not real sure on what the Wheel Horse is...they are popular here, but I've never gotten the itch.  Cute little devil.  Great shape, and I think the Tec is original.  I've heard it may be a 550 Suburban...'60?  The 3012 Simplicity is a real peach too...the deck, blower and dozer may have the least use of any I have had in nearly 100 Simplicity built machines.

Thanks!  I'm pretty pleased...had just a pic or two of them covered in barn dust, nearly two months ago when I sent the funds.  They haven't been run in a while, there are no batteries, and a bit of old fuel here and there.  Each engine feels great though, and I have my fingers crossed that they will all run with relative ease.  The previous owner was a collector, and these were the last of his estate.  They are real nice.

 

I am not officially full though...CL is your for the taking for a while anyway.  :smilewink:

Yeah, I'm a sucker for the old Riverside's.  They have a neat look.  I have the same tires on my '60 Simplicity Wonderboy 700.  I was told the Porter Cable M/W was a '60 as well, but am uncertain.  I don't know much about any of it at this point.  The carrier rolled up while I was serving Mother's Day dinner to my in-laws!  In the first picture, you can see my wife's enthusiasm...she is leaning against the ladder.  She's 8/5 months pregnant and thrilled that I will have 'more projects' to keep me around home this summer.

 

My buddy is a handful...he can climb aboard ANYTHING in the shop now.  Even the big 'ol Legacy's.  He's quick, and Dad has to keep a watchful eye.  We're both learning very fast.  My greatest concern has been hot mufflers, etc.  It's a new world out there for me now.

You even have the snow / ice shield on one of the Homlelites. Those are hard to find.   Nice haul. That T -16 with the original hub caps looks great.   Thanks for sharing.                                                                                                Roger.

Happy mother's day to you, too!

 

I wonder why the tractor fairy doesn't treat me like that?

 

Great hauls.

I saw the lady, leaning at the ladder, and thought: why is she tired?

     Funny, I just got a wheel horse very close to the one you have there, I don't know much about them but I do like the look. very nice score! You even got the tool box on your horse, I have to make one for mine to get the fenders mounted.  Your wife looks as happy as mine when I told her I bought another machine, I think my wife would have had my ^#%$%* If I had brought home that haul.
