Mine is a Moto mower 6020. It has 6.5hp stock. I had to do a repower with a Honda clone. It has 6-12 tires on the rear. It is in good condition.

My first GT was a Sears custom 7, I replaced the original 7hp engine with a 18hp B&S, I had to make the frame 3" longer to get it to fit, then I had to raise the grill/hood up 4" and move the gas tank. I then stuck some big AG treads no it from a trencher, then I added on 140lbs of wheel weights on the rear, then duels, then 300lbs for nose weight, then I broke a rear hub lol.

I replaced the old 3 bolt hubs with super heave 5/8" thick hubs off of a bolens. I then used the old sears for a long time after that. Best old garden tractor I've ever had!

My boss doesn't care... But I also work on a dairy farm. He's just happy he doesn't have to feed heifers or clean calf pens...

I had a cub Cadet original given to me by a family friend, I rode it around like a go kart all over the place until the engine died and I then found a cub Cadet 70 at a garage sale to replace it. No pics of either but I have fond memories.

That is a harrow, I use to hook onto and pull it with a chain, it worked pretty well, now I have upgraded to a 6' tiller behind my Kubota :thumbs:

Had a JD RER back around 1980. Bought it for 200 bucks. My skills didn't match those required to keep it running for long.

No pics, that was 50 years ago! We bought a house, in the metal shed was a 3 h.p. Huskey with chain drive forward and reverse. Probably 24" or so cut. It was green.
