the show season is over here and time to get ready for mowing the whole yard again. I take the mower decks off all but 1 of my tractors to take them to the shows and now it is time to put them back on. I started out this the morning and the crack of 10:00 am and was going to replace the blades and lub the mower deck and install the one on the Sears GT18 and after ruining a socket and a trip to NAPA which is right up the street and lunch and a short nap by 4:00 pm I was ready to mow. I leave the deck on my JD165 as I do not mow everything and it is a smaller mower that I do not ride at the shows as I do the GT's. Summer time when I mow it all I like the larger Gt's as they are more comfortable. I am thinking next year leave the mower deck on the GT  18 as I have stopped riding it at the shows as I have a plow on it so it will have a plow and mower deck.I know you like pictures so here they are # 1 the plow on the GT 18 #2 JD 165 # 3 Ford 100 # 4 Ford LGT 165 # 6 GT 18 with mower # 7 Ford 600 # 8 all of the at a show

Nice photos!

I would like to see more photos of the 2 seat wagon....Wife thinks it is neat!

they are 2 separate units that can be hooked together or use only 1. I can also pull my dump trailer to haul stuff from the flee market at the show,

they are the frame from a seed/fertilizer spreader that spreader parts had gone bad.

they are painted red because the GT I had at that time was painted to match my big Ford, I now pull it with a blue Ford GT, i traded the red  Sears for the black one and keep telling me someday I will paint it red.

Nice to see the pictures. Why not get a finish mower for the ford 600 , or I should ask if it has a pto, some of the fords did not! Any way as mentioned , we Still have feets of snow , I know it's a pain with all the snow, but I would like to have the problem of grass cutting. Please don't take this post the wrong way. Noel

the Ford 600 does have  a pto  my yard is not large enough for a finish mower on that big a tractor. I have it because I inherited from my 45 year old son and have restored it in his honor. I only use it for shows and parades.I used to live where we got snow, but nothing like whats happening this year.
