I don't collect but have 63 Most are Case and IH.   Other brands also  Every time new equipment was bought for the farm, the dealer brought a toy version of it or something close,  So combines tractors plows rakes balers etc.

I have a couple of the detailed Farmall replicas and some of the ones from TS store. No pics at the moment but ill put some up in a few days. I remember goin to the International deal for parts with my father when I was young and seeing the toy section. I think we got a couple back then but lost track of where they are now.Good memories anyway.

I have a few tractors.  I have some garden tractors and a few tractors.  I don't actively collect them, just pick them up here and there if I see one I like.

I also collect them, only USA-made ERTL metal Lawn and Garden Tractors 1/6th scale, (about 5" long, 3" wide & tall).  I have no rare ones and try to not pay more than $25 each, have read where some, (Cub Cadet, 70's), sell for $800, for just a little toy.  Tried to clean up and paint the well worn used ones.  If you have the original box, the value usually doubles when they are sold, I'm told:

The Wheel Horse in photo #5 is not correct, Ertl never made a Wheel Horse nor a Craftsman lawn tractor, someone just made small decals to put on a Snapper tractor.  For Wheel Horse, there is both a 1961 (kids toy) plastic and a 1967 (much more detailed), the  '61 set often sells for $200, and the plastic '67 is still available in a DIY kit form that you glue & paint, for about $20, (I don't have the '61, $$$).

Here are some of mine that I brought down from the attic a couple weekends ago. Still plenty to bring down, but this was the first box I came across.

I collect mostly just shelf model 1/16th tractors.  I am hoping that in 20 years or so that they will be worth something due to them being new in box while most that were made were just trashed by kids playing with them.  Hopefully I am on the right track with that idea, but I doubt it (one can dream though).  Usually they are ones that I just like the particular model and not necessarily a certain brand.  I have more 1/64th than I can count and many 1/16th Case, John Deere, International, Allis Chalmers, CaseIH and others.  My favorite is my complete set of all 3 scales of the Big Bud 16V-747 in both versions.  All new in box.  I would have a hard time parting with them I believe.

I used to collect  USA-made ERTL metal tractors that fit my mood but mostly Massey Harris and some Fords and Oliver's. Also collected die cast brand and if I can find them Hubble ones. If I bought one with a box I still have the box.

I stopped when I was going to buy one and it said made in China on the box.

I buy American as much as I can and go out of my way to do so. Not sticking  a China toy on a shelf in my house.
