The latest addition, Not a garden tractor but there is more to come





Drove an hour to get this.  It is a chore for me to load the trailer and drive so i added another stop to the trip.  Scored a blower and weight box for the Case




Here is the fleet.  2 winter machines that i don't have to take apart every season.  And the new summer machine that cuts, bags, and hauls me up and down the hills while carrying stuff in the bins. 




The house is high and dry but i can't walk on hills any more.  The new weedeater is more comfortable and cuts/bags better than the old Snapper so i sold that one.  Also sold my old Ford, needed hydro lift on the plow so got the Deere, it has 4-way hydraulics.  And picked up the Case to make a blower tractor out of it.  I can't maintain machines i don't use so had to keep it to 3. 




I miss the old 120 sometimes but have my hands full with the Deere and Case and they both have Kohlers like the old Ford, which i like the sound of.  I lucked out and sold it to a collector who says he is going to retire it to parades, that was a sweet running tractor would be a shame to see it abused.  I also made a couple bucks off the Ford which was nice after all the fussing i did over that machine.  Usually i fix em up and sell at a loss, like with the snapper.  so all around i probably broke even on the latest fleet reshuffle there was a lot of piecing together with the snow cabs and stuff, they are still works in progress, good luck with the projects

Sounds like you decided on the best team of machines for your house.  :thumbs: Always good to know that the right equipment has your back.

Thanks guys the more time passes, the less i miss the machines that got away.  any more i get my satisfaction from using them and not have them blow up!  "Easy to work on," like the old machines, is a bonus but the real bonus is not having to work on them much...
