I have no cure, but i do have a solution.  Put all the sears & DB on a trailer and bring them out here.  More room, problem lessened... :D

 

Nice rides :thumbs:

Tell everone your going to take up a hobbie that will keep you under their feet and in the way all day--that should put this matter to rest.

   I dont consider it a problem as long as you can still walk between the tractors and trucks.  when you cant walk between them because you are out of room then you have a problem, :D  Looks like you have lots more room so don't concern yourself for awhile.  Your yard looks allot like mine although I have chevy  truck's,  I would rather burn oil than leak it :smilewink:.  Nice collection, what is the make of that old iron wheel rider?  I like it!!!!!  Want to sell?

Well, I'm closer to cure, just feel better for a short time anyway. Sold my Sears today, one down!   BUT, had the 990 running so nice and oiled up the stiff linkages and greased and was even having the brake work like it should!  THEN, it wouldn't start once again and I  wore the starter gear off trying to crank. Dang Briggs with plastic starter gears!!!!!  They make a metal replacement for other sizes, but not the 16 th one! Feeling less good now! :wallbanging:

You could replace your family! After seeing those pics, I'd love to be adopted. I'm sure there are others.

I just tell my wife... I found another (antique farm) tractor I need.  She always says... go play with your toys (GTs), u have enough tractors.  I don't see how that's possible.  I mean, come on... just how the heck can a guy have too many tractors????

 

There is no cure because it's not a sickness.  It's just natural for a guy (and some gals) to love things that are old, make noise with nicknames like, money pit.

If you run out of room I'll store the skid steer and the mini excavator for you, I'll even do it for FREE! :smilewink:

Those are the two machines that I would really like to have but don't have enough pennies to buy them :(

Nice collection :worshippy1:
