Well, nobody else entered yet, so I will put it my MF12. My favorite attachment is my loader on my 12. I built this 3 or 4 years ago. It does a lot of work for me.
I made it to look like a pipe loader that are on the MF135 farm tractors. It was only made for looks, but once I had it done I had to try it out, of course.
It is operated by a winch to lift it and has a trip bucket, just like the real ones. Thanks for looking. Noel

I'm going to throw the FF/20 and home-built fork lift into this mix. I have several attachments, but the fork lift seems to be on there the most. I use to to move anything I can get on there. The idea came from sacsr when he posted a pic of a BH fork lift attachment. I posted that pic on the fridge in the garage and studied it for some time. Finally, I started building it. Here's the thread on that build.

The forks are made from 2.5" wide X 1" bar stock. I had several short pieces and a neighbor took 4 to work with him and welded them into the forks. Also put a bevel on the ends for me. I added some eye bolts at the top for attaching things and found a short chain that I can use to 'store' the forks upright when not in use.

You can't see it in the last pic, but the tractor has 3 positions for the top link to attach. By moving the top link down, I can control the amount of tilt when I lift something (besides the adjustment in the top link itself).

I nominate my original condition 1964 Simplicity Landlord and the attached Simplicity walk behind plow thats been adapted to sleeve hitch configuration. Tractor was swapped for from a fellow member here on the site and has been in semi regular use either mowing or serving as a butt buggie at shows. Hope to try her in the field this fall if I still have her at that time. Plow goes off to the sand blaster later this month so I can repaint before the fall plowing events. The Landlord still has her original engine that to my knowledge has never been overhauled, correct original muffler and only the front rims have been repainted so far( I really need to do the rear rims!) I have added headlights since this picture was taken. I got the tractor from Talentedmrgreen, swapping him a Sunstar I had purchased at the dealership where I work. He met me in Ft Wayne, IN to make the swap. The tractor was shown at the 100th Gathering of the Orange in LaPorte, IN and I took 1st in one of the garden tractor games.

 

I have Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. Old garden tractors/mowers is one of my special interests. I have turned this into a profession. But with it comes horrible social skills, trouble making and keeping friends and I easily get bored with tractors and sell them off or swap them off. So I am hoping to get my Landlord featured, which would really rekindle my interest in keeping it and finishing off what I have in my mind that I want to do. If I kept the tractor, a decent pair of used Ag tires need to be found so I can plow, and I need the proper headlight mounting bar for my lights.

I will post another newer picture tomorrow after I get home from work, she is stored at our dealership along with the plow. I am preparing to go to the Greenville,OH tractor show, may take the Landlord as it looks much nicer than my Case 220 that is under restoration right now. Mike

But you didnt nominate anything... :poke:

The rules each month clearly state that "You can not nominate your tractor if you have won in the last 12 months."
so this is for you Alan... I'm a winner, see my prize, you're a loser who sits and cries. :poke:

That was a great episode of Spongebob Squarepants lol.

Kenny, I love those forks, you did a great job with them. I made a pair but they are non adjustable and it seems like they are always just a little bit to wide for a pallet.
