Whether you have walk behinds, garden tractors, or any other sort of tractor and any combination of them. I would like to know out of the ones that you own which is either your favorite and / or your go to tractor. I am more interested in the one that is your favorite or go to tractor to get stuff done.

 

I am sure most responses the favorite tractor will be their go to tractor as well and some will have separate choices which is fine too. I want to see a picture(s) of the tractor(s) choose. I also want to know why it is your favorite or go to tractor and I don't want to see no single liners like; "because its the best" or "because it's this color". I want to hear honest reasons as to why it's your favorite tractor. 

 

I will post a reply with my choice(s) later once I get home to a pc with access to my pictures.

Well, George, that is a no brainer. My Sears FF/20 of course! It has a good working 3-point and I have made many attachments for it to do whatever I want done around here. The only two things it doesn't have I would like is a foot pedal for travel and power steering. It gets the job done.

I have two 'go to' tractors.

 

The 1886 Forklift for obvious reasons.  When I need to move heavy stuff, and it seems like all of the Bolens attachments are heavy, it worth it's weight in gold.

The other is the HDT1000.  22 Diesel horses for trailer moving (with or with out a load). doing the heavy work, and able to climb tall hills in a single bound  :D :D :D

Without a doubt it would be the Bolens GT2000 with the loader. This takes the place of my bad back allows me to keep working in my shop. Also gets used for cleaning snow around the buildings. The diesel is just icing on the cake.

Power King 2414 for most part. 3pt hitch, snow plow. No deck, but pulls many things and "rescues" the neigbors tractor when he has trouble getting out of his Mud yard! Prettiest too!

 

Have a NEW Snapper PK and haven't tried it on much yet, but will probly be my NEW favorite this summer??

 

Speedex's next if ever get them running, Ha!

My favorite tractor is my JD 425..  I had it two years before I even used it and all those 2 years it was a love/hate relationship as I struggled to rebuild and resurrect it from gross neglect and abuse by the PO..  It tested my patience and taught me that great things come to those who wait.  

 

Here's a few pictures of when I dragged it home:

Here's a few after I got it done:

And it's the tractor in my avatar!!

Well I cant reply to the favorite tractors part. I cant pick just one.  And my go to tractor is two. First would be my sears suburban 12. My favorite style of sears. Its my go to for just about anything. Pulling, pushing, the only thing I don't do is mow with it. (I know someone will point out that there is a mower deck on it, that came off)  And that's were my other go to tractor comes in. My wheel horse. Its all original. Got it from the second owner. Runs great. Love mowing with it. And it mows just about anything.

The one that will start on the day I want to use it. I still like to go back to my Ariens S-16. It was my first tractor and I enjoy it a lot for the memories that I have of it for the 17 years I owned it.

I may have to sit this one out... All my Bolens are loved equally :D

 

But if I had to choose its my Bolens 1000 passed down from my grandfather, been in the family since 1966.
