I've been sorta aggravated by all those "got the herd out pictures" since most of my herd doesn't run... Or have good batteries... But I managed to round up five that had both qualifications... So I joined the side of aggravator. :D

That Toro has a fiberglass seat/fenderpan with dual seat springs and is hard like rock lol. I had a seat cushion on it when I rode it for the tractor tour thru town at the FCVAEC Summer Show... But that too was not enough lol. Those ag tires are hard like rocks too, and pavement pounding with them is rough.

Golly, you give a guy a cushy job with a soft chair a d suddenly everything is hard and uncomfortable.

Yes Al, all those are missing because dad parked the Cub in with the Tri Trac and I haven't operated the Tri Trac yet... Figure that logic out lol. The Farmall 140 is too big to get to the yard I took the photo. The David Bradley's are all trapped in dad's shop, and only a handful of them run anyway. Most of my Springfields are not running or trapped currently, except for the one in the bed of my truck (topper keeps it dry lol). Logical rules of counting basics define that I own an infinite quantity of tractors if attempting to count or classify them. :D

The last time the Toro ran right was right before it ran out of gas at the FCVAEC show... Will no longer idle down... Was playing with the carb after the pictures and all the sudden the hood (open at the time) fell free of the right side hood bolt!! That was the end of working on the carb as I will now have to pull that carb and go thru it (dunk in carb cleaner as well).

What did you touch Alan? :poke:

Nice pics, thanks! I'd name that Toro "Ruff Rider". It's good to get them out of the barn for some fresh air and let them stretch their legs!

There is parts of a Bolens in the herd. It used to have two Bolens I saved from scrap... But those suckers were rough, so I sold the better of the two techumsehs, gave the carb away off the other broke techumseh to a friend, and pulled the ags and wheel weights from the one that had them, as well as all headlights, and the rear tires and wheels from the other. Then I gave the hulks and hoods etc. to Bob (BHTS). The ag tires and wheels from the one Bolens are bolted to the Toro, which is also sporting Gravely wheel weights saved fom the scrap yard. The left headlight on the New Holland is from the other Bolens. I think the right rear wheel and tire I mounted on the CC 108 that I could not identify origin in my collection of parts is from one of the Bolens I parted lol. So yes there is a Bolens in there LOL.
