This is my 1971 Simplicity Yeoman 637. It has a 7hp Briggs and Stratton. I bought it three years ago for 50$ And had it running within the next 10 minutes. It was sitting in a "Junkyard" left to rust. It sat outside for seven years with the hood open. It came with the 32 inch deck which was locked up from poor maintenance.

      We use it mostly for blowing snow in the winter. It has an oversized 36" Blower for a Landlord. It works very well. It never runs out of power, Even when the snow is higher than the blower. The only problems we have with it is we shred a belt or two every year and the chute clogs up when there is wet snow. This is my first and favorite tractor. It is the best thing a 10 year old could have wished for.

 

(In the second picture it is the first on the right)

Not xmas, but snowy!  This is my Snapper Hydro, made by Power King, so I call it my Snapper King. Think more of it as a Power King.  It came with a quick-tach system and the Power Brush attachment. I used it a little last year, shown in pictures, but it tore up gears as to lack of my attention to gear lube. I later this last summer rebuilt the brush and now is mounted for a second try at snow removal. It makes quite a big path and I use it to do a grassy area between house and garage, for walking and letting dog have place to run and doodle in winter. I have also used it on the drive and front walk, all real nice to use it on. This tractor has 20hp Kohler V-twin and hydro with lever on fender. I wasn't sure I would like that lever there, but it is bent just right and easy to use, better than expected. I have large Ag tires on and some of the biggest chains I have ever owned or seen. 3/8" chains with 5/16" cross-chains. They are heavy to handle and a little bumpy, but grab real well. Last year didn't have weight on back, this year have a little but might need to add more.

I will put Frankie in this month. Frankie is a LGT 100 Ford. I bought Frankie and his cousin, frankalena, also a LGT 100, for parts a few years ago. Frankie was in better shape and more intact than frankalena. So I used a few parts from frankalena to fix up Frankie. Frankie has worked great since. Needed a ring job since I got him, but he still putts along as normal. Just clean the plug once in awhile.
I have no deck, but have made a snow plow and other garden attachments for Frankie. He tows stuff around, goes to the woods some, and other duties. He is very good for garden work because of the bull low gear, you can creep along and watch what's going on. Hydro would not be as comfortable. Thanks for looking, Noel

IMG_00000051.jpg IMG_00000050.jpg My nomination is my 1966 moto mower 6020, Bill. I have owned bill since June of 2015. I found bill in my best friend's neighbors barn in the back under a door. $25 dollars later I had a non running tractor. 223 dollars (and a trip to tool town the Canadian version of Harbour freight)later I had a pulley that fit and a running tractor. 

 

I use Bill for emptying my bank account hauling straw giving Wagon rides to siblings and dethatching the lawn. In the past I used Bill to go work or my friends house.

Well I will be the first to put up a prize for the January voting , I am going to give the winner of the January vote there choice of a 6" or 8" muffler with a 8" chrome stack , it has 1" pipe thread on the bottom and will fit Kohler motors and some others , I will also be doing this for the February vote , So this gives those that didn't get into this vote can get there tractor in and have a chance to win a free stack muffler , I will ship the muffler only to the USA and Canada , sorry for those outside of that but shipping would be to much , So get those pictures ready for the February vote and good luck to those in the running for January2015 wheel horse muffler006.jpg

What a prize teaser!  Not many seem to vote on these contests really. Just remember to vote for the RED ones, heee!  Green is for your lawn color, not a tractor!
