I know but being from the upper michigan the problem is even a 100 mile trip as the crow flies may actually be a alot more do to the fact I have to drive around great Lakes lol I am going to try and get him to meet me part way If I can

Heck Ron up here in the frozen north 100 miles is just a trip to Wal-Mart and back.

Okay, Ron! We've given you more than enough info. You should have at least a couple of projects by now. Let's step it up a little. We need some pictures to drool over.

Simplicities and thier Allis Chalmer counterparts are some of the easiest to work on and the cheapest to find attachments for.  Those tractors are easily repowered if the original engine is beyond help.  Those cast iron Briggs are right up there with Kohler K series for long life and easy of overhaul.  I say with those attachments its worth the road trip.  I have driven farther for tractors and know others that have had to make it a 2 day trip to fetch one they wanted.  Make an enjoyable day or 2 days of it.  Thats what my wife and I do.  We take notes of places along the way we want to stop at, then on the return trip stop and enjoy those places together.  Hope you end up with it.  Mike

All the tractors mentioned are good tractors, and should do the job.  I hope that allis works out for you.  As for finding parts still available and dealer help on parts too, I gotta mention my favorite tractor,  a John Deere 318.   And, since there are plenty of 318's still around, finding one should be easy enough.   A 3-point hitch, a snow blower, 2 different types of tillers (pto driven and hydraulic driven),  a loader bucket, a snow plow,  were made for the 318.

Well I can tell you from what I know case is a good lawn tractor but from what you told me you wanted A front bucket loader some day I would stay away from case weak front end when it comes to a loader and attachments I am finding can be pricey double that of an allis Chalmers or simplicity but they are really cool tractors. how far are you from cincy

I think I am going to keep looking for another one also it seems to get addicting this is will be the fifth rider I got this year but the first that is not a mtd pile lol I think the next one will be a simplicity for the bucket to go on I like the 4041 I seen the size of them and I really like them

Yeah easy to work on but there are some other cool ones out there like wheel horse 520 works great with a loader but I don't think any others have the same weight as the 4041 it is a beast but that 2000 rpm pto shoots itself in the foot a bit.

Whatever I get this time around will probably get a blower atachment and that's what it will have the rest of its life I think the next one will get a bucket but with that sed I seen a video of a 446 blow and I was impressed but how would a 7119 be at blowing snow i can get one with blower chains and cab for the same price as just the 446 on its own with no attachments other than the deck
