I am trying to only keep a few "toy" tractors these days and a good go to worker or two.. I'm thinking about trading my 62 Squire with sicklebar for this 912 with tiller and deck. It would be a better everyday mower,tiller,etc.I think and I have other project tractor and not enough time or money for those. Its a tough choice. The Squire would show nice with the sicklebar along side my 700 with the moldboard plow on it but I think I would get more use out of the 912.The 912 has been well cared for,fluids and filters changed,etc. The tiller has new bearings. It doesn't have the appeal to me that the Squire does but the Squire is mostly for for shows,etc. Tough decision. Thoughts ?

Your right, tough decision. How many shows do you go to?

I run one and help a local farm tractor club with bringing garden tractors and owners to their shows. Probably only will get to 6-8 shows this year.

That makes it tougher. If it was only one or two shows, the decision might be easier.

The 900 Series are a very well-built and well thought out tractor. You can also put an electric lift on it. Even the 900 Series are getting to be an attraction at shows. I showed my 914 last year and it got about as much spectator attention as the HB-212 with sickle bar.
