They were built to work. They made a bunch of attachments.

I always thought they were a Joke myself! Junk, even when new!  Sure have collectors after them now, never understood that!

The model 3000 is a bit useless due to its size, but the 5000 and especially 8000 are built like tanks. Far from junk. And collectors are after them because they are unusal and not commonplace - compared to the mirror image, boring, green Deeres. You see one and you've seen them all.

The 8000 is a full sized tractor that is capable of any task any other garden tractor can perform. This is a "before" and "current" shot of mine.

That's the part I don't get....  they are almost commonplace, at least the smaller models.  I literally don't think I've ever been to a tractor show where there wasn't at least one Bantam running around.  They're certainly a lot more common than a whole host of other brands.

 

Nice work on the 8000 by the way.  I'll admit that's an uncommon model. :thumbs:
