1-JD 790, 1-420 (garden version), 1-314, 1-100, 1-70 I & 1-60. The 790 is for work at home & at the farm, 420, 314 & 70 I have jobs around home & for shows, 100 is a restoration project & the L/60 Custom doesn't get used much anymore except for shows.  ~~  Lowell

 

On edit: I forgot to mention that I've downsized some, jut too much work to keep them all up anymore.  I still have plenty of attachments; carts for all, blades for all but the L/60, snowblower & cab for the 314, etc.  ~~  Lowell

Between the wife and I, we don't have enough toes and fingers, so it's not

an issue.

Just remember, he who dies with the most toys is still dead!  I have heard that's when the hoarding ends.

At last count, I have about 80 tractors ranging from small two wheelers up to a 12 ton AC HD6G Shoveldozer. Many are hiding in the woods. I've been trying to cut down to under 30 but they keep showing up. Maybe I'll get rid of some this year. Good Luck, Rick

Why do humans make a contest out of everything that used to be relaxing?

i should of worded the question  and my comments differently, i am not looking to make a contest out of it i am simply asking how large some of our members collections are, and i do realize sometimes it comes down to quality not quanity,

Right now I am at 12 counting my complete garden tractors and my two big tractors. If I include my snowblower which I guess I technically could as its a 1969 Montgomery Wards I am at 13 and I am still always looking. Maybe I will tell my wife about you guys with 50+ and make her feel better!

My count is not bragging, its admitting that I have a problem. I set out each spring to get rid of the majority which are junk LTs but seem to acquire them faster than I get rid of them. I've decided to just strip a dozen MTDs and Craftsmans, and scrap the hulks. I'll pick out some odd ones and post them here and CL. Its a start.

 

The garage is filled with over a dozen generators 2kw to 25kw. Good Luck, Rick
