So!  I sold 4 lawn / garden tractors this spring to make room and get a little cash.  I wanted to cut my inventory down. Then last weekend I had 4 given to me and this week i bought 3.  Now I have 14 tractors.  6 running, 4 need work, 4 for parts.  

Free ones

Ranch king dead engine

Craftsman with dead tranny.  Did the engine swap to the ranch king runs works nice.

Honda smokes a lot

Weed eater one needs clutch

 

Bought

Craftsman YS4500 

John deer 455 needs some work.

John deer 425 parts tractor mower deck.  Needs engine 

 

Now I have 3 more than I started with and less cash.

I know what you are sayin. I've been hanging on to 3 lately....the 318, the ingersol, and I thought I was going to hang onto the lawnboy, but a friend needed a good rider so I let him have it for what I had in it, then I found another, a sears FF18. And I'm thinking serious about going to pick up a parts tractor sears I found next week. It's not a serious disease is it? gardentractorholism?

When I buy something I intend to keep it so the thought of reducing inventory never comes to mind :D

 

Just added another 3 machines to the collection yesterday :D

You've just got to start selling & not buying!   :D

 

I've sold off a few things the last couple of years & have two more little tractors I hope to sell by the end of show season; the L/60 Custom:   HPIM0503 - Copy (2).JPG

 

& the 78-100:  HPIM1531.JPG

 

Trying to get down to just the ones I actually use!
