Come on guys, please get more nominations in.  We are a huge group of guys & gals to have so few nominations & voters.  It's "Open" month, so everyone who has a tractor is eligible as long as you give enough info & good pics loaded direct to the site.  Come on & nominate your tractor!

Great looking batch of tractors so far this month.  It will be tough making any decisions!    Now, if that nice 8-point buck was on the fender of a green and yellow tractor,   hmmm... lol!

That roper is a beauty.  You know I was hoping to gain the advantage by having my kid in the picture then you went and did the same.  Thanks for stealing my thunder. :poke:  But seriously, you really invested an amazing amount of time into that rehab.  Kudos.

I've been on the road the last couple days and didn't have time to "really" look and read over all the other nominations. All I can say is we ALL have the bug really bad, (in a good way). Great job on all the submissions!

I am nominating the 8hp Motomower I picked up for my son. I saw this on CL, and it caught my eye. when I got there and saw how small it was, I knew it was for my son. the plans are to involve him in it's restoration. Due to to it's simple design this should a great project for a youngster. I have been collecting the missing parts through a donor tractor and the great members here who have sold/ donated some missing items.

I do not have a tag to get the exact year, but the Duracorp company made these in the mid sixties along with porter cables and the massey executives. This 8hp model was only made a few years and replaced by the 10hp model.

This tractor runs good and really just needs a few things fixed before a full restoration happens. We now have a mower deck with the lifting mechanism, all it's missing sheetmetal pieces,  grill emblem, and new decals.This project should be fun, and when it's done , my son will get two things out of it. A newly restored tractor and a great time bonding with Dad learning the skills it takes to take things apart and put them together correctly.

It is a fun little tractor to drive. I also like the look of the head light delete plates, I think it looks better than with headlights like the 10hp models do.Part of it's charm.

The pictures start from when we purchased it , to parts that we have to fix it, to what it looks like right now, and the last one being my son Matthew sitting on his first tractor . 

Thanks for reading, Tom

Forgot to mention the 8hp engine is a kohler.

Paint eyeballs in the headlights & that thing would look cool!

I'll nominate my Bolens HT23.

I bought this HT23 from a friend, it was in rougher shape and hadn't run in probably 5 years, I cleaned the carb and put on a new starter. The old thing fired right up and ran great. I then put some new tires on it and it's been working ever since.

It seems like this old garden tractor can do it all, I made a JD mount for the front of it so I can run JD attachments, it seems like the JD attachments are easy to come by, however I have never seen any Bolens attachments in this area.

 

I have a Kwik Way loader that I'm going to put on it next, also wanting to put on a snow blower but I don't have time to do either.

This old tractor may not look like much, but it sure is handy to have around.

My dad has an HT23 he got in the garage of the house he bought.  That thing is beast among beasts!  That tractor has done things that trucks should not even be attempting.  That is the tractor that turned me into a Bolens fan.

Given the amount of people that take the time to vote on this site, at the rate we are going with nominations, everyone will get one vote!  Great group of tractors to choose from this month.  Good luck to all.

They sure are a beast of a garden tractor, seems like it can do just as much if not more as my 20hp Kubota
