Mine was a 12 hydro with deck and blower, I was 17 at the time. Bought it to cut grass at our first house. At the time it was just a lawn mower to me. Traded it for a truck and kicked my ass everyday since. Hind sight is 20/20 I've been told. No pics of that one.

Mine was an MTD 800 LT that's still out in a shed. Mom bought it from here brother-in-law for 50 bucks and gave it to us for a housewarming present when we bought her acre and trailer house. That was 1980. I mowed with it until 2006 or 7. Believe it r not it looked like that when we got it. Uncle Bill always said "I'tll vaporlock if you put the hood on it". He was right as I tried it several times through the years.
Don't know what I'm gonna do with it. First pic, our daughter on it about 1995. 2nd, her on it 2011, 3rd with the hood on.

Allis Chalmers Homesteader 8. It had a Tecumseh repower at some point which is now gone. I have a Briggs I am rebuilding to put back into it. Also have added a nice lawn revitalizer attachment for it. Did a lot of work with this machine about twelve years ago. Pics are old as you could still see the floor in the shed

My first is my SS16. I was stubborn and would not buy one until 2 years ago,,,preferred to cut my little 1/2 acre with a push reel mower but climate change had me out there twice a week and was losing my sense of ha ha's as i am no fan of "landscaping detail"
The tractor came with mower and snowblower

I don't know how to claim a first gt. The first gt me and dad restored was a John Deere 110 when I was young.
First gt I paid money for was a cub 128 that I never restored as we had other 128s and me and dad restored tractors together 50/50 split on the cost

When I was 10 I inherited a Briggs powered Dynamark 8/36, my Dad was amazed when he came home and I was mowing grass w/it, I had pulled the flywheel and replaced points and cleaned carb and tank. Mom bought a bar-type flywheel puller and points/condenser at Western Auto.
