After lots of time lurking here to get a feel for what I'd be getting in to, I picked up a project garden tractor. In my neck of the woods, these units are hard to come by. So, I was happy to find a complete GTV 18, along with a not quite complete parts tractor. Both units came with mower decks, and one of them came with a snow thrower. I plan to spend this winter fully refurbishing, if not restoring, one of the two to get it ready to work in the confines of the orchard next year.
