I have 2 garden tractors, 1 Bolens HT23 and 1 John Deere 140 that is being converted to a crawler.

My other "toys" are my Kubota L2000 with loader, backhoe, 60" finish mower and box blade.  Mobility big dipper and home built high loader with bucket and forks.

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

And you probably don't have one running backup for when the power goes out.

Three run. I needed the 3 when Irene hit here 3 years ago. The 40 year old Sears was the one that stayed running after the 2 newer ones brokedown for minor repairs( recoil seized, valve keeper slipped). I went through 80 gallons of gas in ten days( and 4 oil changes).

 

Of the others: Two have blown engines. Two have burned generators. Three I have to build outside sheds to setup. Three are GT attachments( 1 Simplicity, 2 Sears). Oh, I just remembered three old ones(cast iron engines) that haven't run in years and two welder/generators. I guess I have 18 generators. Almost as bad as LTs and GTs. Good Luck, Rick

You know you have a problem when you walk in one of the sheds and say "I forgot I had that one!"

If you can still count the models in your head your in the clear :thumbs: :D

Bob Simmons from western Ky had 168 running condition GT's in his  collection the last time I spoke with him.  Has them stacked 2 high in his barns.  I also heard that sadly he is beginning to sell some due to his wife's failing health.  No time for him to take any to shows these days.

Hey BTS, I sure like that J.D. 140 ! Olde Deere #1 always wanted a track tractor.  I now have three J.D.  lawn and garden tractors and two working 100hp. big tractors as well as two non-running old J.D. field units, one on steel and a J.D. "R" on rubber that will run with a little tlc.

Too many for the space that I have.  Had to make more space (stack) some of the toys.  If this is 'only' about LT/GT toys, I have a measly 5.

 

If I were to add in ALL the toys, I'm afraid it would take awhile...   :hitting_self_roller:

If I count farm tractors and garden tractors we are up to 42 at the moment.  I thought that was too many until I seen what some of you fellows have.

I think my "toys" are under control.  I sold three little tractors this year, and bought one new little tractor and one big farm tractor (ok, I have bought lots of big tractor implements.)  I have resisted tons of good deals on garden tractors I don't need.  I have even sold more guns than I have bought lately.

 

Funny story about wives and too many big boy toys.  A few years ago I was buying new old guns pretty frequently, every few weeks one would follow me home.  One day, I was in the garage admiring my latest, a pretty 1903 Springfield sporter when my wife walked in.  "I don't recognize that one, is it new?"  I never ask my wife permission, but I don't hide anything either.  "I just bought it today."  Something clicked with her, maybe a quick mental calculation of how much of our money I had spent.  Within a week, she bought a horse!  So the horse is like a garden tractor with no implements.  Following the horse, we got a trailer, a few miles of fence, a new water system in the house, a barn, enough saddles to outfit Custer's Cavalry, more horses, chickens, ducks, cattle, a big tractor, a building to store the tractor and saddles.  Basically that first horse changed our entire family's lifestyle from tv watching sedentary to active and prepared.

Thanks, That is a older picture, it now has the engine in and both tracks finished. I even had it out for a test drive but didn't get very far :D.

I have always wanted a tracked garden tractor, I came across this john deere (with a loader) cheap so I thought it would be the perfect candidate for it!
Once the tracks are working I'm going to put the loader back on it.

Right now I'm waiting for winter for when I have more time to finish it :thumbs:
