I guess nobody is using their vintage iron to mow their grass with.

Well, I was going to post my Bolens HT23, I mowed my neighbors lawn then brought it home to mow my lawn and then take pictures for the nominations.

I got it home, mowed one swath and a pulley on the deck went out :wallbanging:.

So I guess I'm out this round :(

Although I'm looking for the pulley that goes on the gear box if anyone has one! :thumbs: :smilewink: :D

Hope to see some garden tractor nominations soon!

Well, I am currently putting new deck bearings on my '84 john deere 318, and the one I have listed in the classifieds is the 318 I have been mowing with, it is a '86 I think.  That's kinda vintage, isn't it?  I could get the '73 john deere 140 out and mow with it I suppose, but I REALLY like using the 318 with power steering!    :D

It's still your mowing tractor, so leave the deck on & take some pics to enter it!

Needless to say the carelessness of the operator caused the center pivot to crack and the tractor split in 2, I guess it was not all bad though as I got it for a good price :D.

 

 

Is this your way of saying you got it for....."half off"?  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:

Since no one is nominating anything I'll step in and nominate my 67' Bolens Estate Keeper  (EK10)

 

I've owned this tractor for about 3 years now. I originally picked this machine up at an auction in PA. The tractor was in half when I bought it since the guys who were moving the items around thought it would be a good idea to pick it up with a forklift instead of pull it in place :wallbanging: Needless to say the carelessness of the operator caused the center pivot to crack and the tractor split in 2, I guess it was not all bad though as I got it for a good price :D.

 

Since I bought it I have used it as my designated mower in the summer and it also does snow duty in the winter. I went through the engine and gave it a new set of rings and lapped the valves.

In my opinion these tractors were the best mowing machines Bolens built due to the attachment being in front of you so the wheels dont have a chance at knocking the grass down before it gets cut. The center pivot steering is also a nice feature for tight turns.

I have both the 42'' Rotary Mower and the 30'' Reel attachment for this tractor but lately have been using the reel attachment for mowing as I like the clean cut and stripes in the lawn :D

 

She's not the prettiest but it gets the job done!

 

Hmm...I thought I had entered...(post 8)  ,  but I'll make it official...I hereby nominate my John Deere 210.

Propane1, are you sure the year of your 140 is 1970? There are somethings that just don't look right. Is the steering wheel original? A 1970 wouldn't have that large of a steering wheel cap, and the hydro drive lever doesn't usually extend that high. What is the serial number of this tractor?

Yea, pretty good grip BTS !!  The Model is 140, type is TO583, serial is 024311M.  Please correct me if I am wrong.   Noel

 

And thanks to who ever turned the pictures for me, I am not real good with computers.
