Power Kings and Speedex!  Have a small "Deere" too, but don't usually mention that. Just for mowing.  Power King is a "Manly" tractor and Speedex's   are just kinda odd and easy to work on.  MM's for the Big tractors.

I'd have to say the Massey Ferguson 8H or the Wheel Horse RJ-58, because if they break, it's not ruining the collection of my real love, the John Deere's!  :smilewink:  :poke:

My favorite tractor of what I own is My Cub Cadet dual stick 1650.

I use it for moldboard plowing, cutting the lawn with the 50" deck and pushing snow with the 54" power angle blade.

The go to, do it all tractor.

My favourite is my MF1655 with a FEL. It's hard to break, and easy (and usually inexpensive) to repair. If the traction is available, the torque is hard to believe.

My favorites are AC/Simplicities from the 60s and 70s and Bolens Large Frames. The Simplicities are "snappy" and fun to drive. The Bolens are very rugged and powerful. Both were well made, very popular, and had tons of attachments. Check out :  www.simpletractors.com to learn about the Simplicities. Good Luck, Rick

It's not the right one for this forum - but my favorites are the 3120 and the XUV 550.

 

With the 3120 I travelled to Luxembourg and Leipzig and many other interesting places - but with the Gator, Doris and I can travel together. Yesterday we've made a trip to Neukirchen.

mine would be my Allis HB212. It's the GT I grew up on and even though it hasn't ran since 1990 and been in the barn all these years, it's still that one I never plan to get rid of. Found a motor so maybe I can get it going next year. Best mowing tractor I have ever used.

Harrumph! I see from your avatar that you have only 3 posts. Did you know that you must be a member for 90 days before you may become a site supporter and create opinion polls? And, did you know that complaining about another member's (George N. Dunn) tractors is considered flaming? I'm afraid I'm going to have to take this to the International Brotherhood of Tractor Manipulators for consideration.

My JD 140H3 with the B&S 16 hp Vanguard.  Be better if it had power steering and a loader though.

Depends on what I'm doing at the time, 83-420 for snow pushing & moldboard plowing, 80-314 for snowblower & belly blade.  And the 70 I for cart towing.
