Thank you! We still hang clothes on the line. Can't beat the fresh air smell when you put your shirts on!

Yes, the S-16H is a 74, the GT-18 is a 88 and not really sure the year of the YT-12 but I figure it's around 88-90

they are great machines. They all have their little quirks but all in all they're well built. The S-16H is getting up there in age but she still runs strong and is all original. Pretty impressive little machine. What did you mean by good German comefrom?

On briggs engines the first 2 numbers in the code is the year.

Pretty impressive little machine. What did you mean by good German comefrom? Henry Ariens bought a German made rototiller in 1932 and found that it would work in the area soil. He and his three son's began their company the next year.

not many briggs used on Ariens then, the S and GT are Kohler, not sure what would be on the YT

No they don't all fit in that particular shed but they are all stored away out of the weather.
