My 1st actual GT was this Bolens 1050 with 42" Deck,round Tiller/w extension,snow caster and Plow.I used it for everything.Sadly the engine literally fell apart while I was tilling.The garden was 4x as large as it is in these old pics.The bearing plate bolts fell out and it snapped the cam,ate the governor and messed up the crank.I should of put another TRA-10D in it and kept it but I left it go.


These pics were from back in 09 taken with a 3mp camera shortly after painting it.

I've had alot of smaller LTs before this but nothing even remotely as versatile.She was a great all around Garden Tractor.It would handle everything you could throw in front of it.

1st "Lawn" tractor was a JD STX38, which I still cut the grass with. 

Then found a National reel mower because my dad had one when I was a kid

My 1st real GT is a Ford LGT100....came with mower deck, tiller and blade....added a couple more Fords since
