IMG_0270.jpg My favorite GT is mine. LOL! The Sears series is so easy to use and does such a great job in the garden with plenty of power to plow or cultivate or cut grass. I'm really hooked on orange and white too. I guess because I like those popcicles call creamcicles, the ones with vanila ice cream covered in orange ice pop. LOL I guess if I did have a wish list it would be a hydro unit and PTO.

My favorite to drive that I own: my Cub Cadet 107. Just drives nice and everything is so heavy duty. They just don't build GT's like that anymore.

Favorite collector: I have a 1969 Red John Deere 110 Patio. It needs a restoration so I haven't driven it yet but no doubt my favorite collector as its by far my most rare and valuable.

mine has to be the Rover Rancher 2 ( 1970's )

it is a light weight machine but starts every time and works the hardest and the most at any time

Something with round hood and round fenders..A '59 Wheel Horse or something similar looking. I will own one someday but am quite happy with my excellent running Mighty SS16

Both of my GTs are my favorites. The Ford LGT 100 was the first one I owned in recent years & has both good things with a few things that maybe modified in a few years. The Ford LGT 145 has the classic look of all older tractors & can do some impressive things, but also may have some more modification in a few years. So to put one above the other is in no way a possibility as I find them to be great toys to have in m life.

My favorite is whatever one I am messing with.
Collectibility the Springfields are fun because of the challenge of finding them.
My Cub Cadets because I have IH in my veins.
Current beast in my stable is a New Holland S-14H and it is most impressive to me yet in overall construction, hydraulic control systems, and size/comfort.
I guess I just gravitate to whatever tractor is calling for help.

Favorite model? Mmmm.....Let's see. I guess I'll go with a round fender 110 or 112. Got to like the overall appearance and the variable speed control is top notch for a gear driven tractor. Wish the 110's would have had 10 hp Kohlers, and the 112's 12 hp Tecumseh's, but other than that, no complaints.


Favorite brand? I think I better say John Deere. I'm in too deep as a collector, to try and get my wife to approve the decision of changing brands now!  :(  :smilewink:

I'd have to say out of what I own as of today my 1963 cub 70 is my favorite it had snow duty for 2 years this year it will get a break since the bar the holds the lift arm in place blew the spring last winter while plowing. It has never let me down always starts an runs smooth. The 110 square fender 110is on trailer duty since it needs drive belts I only use it to move the boat when I mow with the gt275.

My favorites are early (round hood or no hood) Economy's. 


The one on my holy grail list is a Economy built "National" tractor; sold through the National Farm Equipment catalog company in Syracuse, NY. So far, I've seen pictures of only 2 of them. 


Thanks, Rob
