Very nice machine ! Did you get any other attachments besides the plows ?

No other attachments.  It came with the original owner's manual as well.

They do a nice job of garden plowing . That's what was on my grandfathers when I got it . Most of my tractors and attachments aren't restored or repainted so I have a spray bottle mixed with wd40/motor oil that keeps them from getting rusty , well I should say any worst lol

I Tri Trac'ed the local McDonald's parking lot on Saturday morning for a coffee, the traditional trip I make with each of my garden tractors to see how they run and to keep them exercised.  It's only a few blocks away from my house so they get a little stretch, but not too far that I can't easily walk home in case they break down (and I get a coffee at the half way point).  The Tri Trac ran absolutely flawlessly.  Nice to have a garden tractor with a Wisconsin on it again as I've always liked and preferred them (my last few acquisitions have been Briggs powered, which is fine, just not my preference).

Now that's how I would want to ride to town.   Nice tractor.  Looks like it has been well taken care of.

Hi Jamie,

 

Firstly, I hope you're doing well!

 

I realize this is a relatively old thread, however I've become really intrigued by Tri Trac's recently and stumbled upon this not realizing you had a Tri Trac; it looks great! 

 

You can restore a tractor 100 times, but it's only original once! 

 

Thanks, Rob

You bought a good one.  That was the nicest garden tractor that I have ever owned.  It ran and operated beautifully, and was in amazing original condition.  I probably won't ever own a garden tractor again that was in that nice of original condition.  We bought a cottage out in Prince Edward Island so I sold my Tri Trac and Shaw in order to help offset the cost of the cottage.  It was crazy cheap and we couldn't say no as we believe the cottage will be a wise investment in family, friends and even financially.  So, I was very sad to see my Tri Trac and Shaw go, but it was for good reason.  If it was not for that, I don't know that I ever would have parted with the Tri Trac.  Congrats on the purchase; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.  It looks like you're not too far away from me either.
