Finally someone sees it from my point of view. Lol

Takes me 3 hours on the lx188 for the backyard. That's if I stay out of the low hole with the bulrushes

Well it kinda just happened with the deeres. Really. In my part of the world I bet there is at least 10-1 Deere over other brands. Second likely Sears, then mixture of mtd, ayp, and the odd simplicity.
The first one I got was the simplicity I rescued from the bush
Second was the LX188 I got for free. Customer of mine was generous. Had no hood, grill and had oil leaks. Bought an lx173 for parts with blown kohler. Engine wasn't blown, got it running. I robbed the hood, the deck, used it a bit and sold it for what I paid for it. Took that money, bought stx38 from another customer of mine. It was a minty unit but 5 speed. Wife and I always fought over the 188 cause compared to the Lx the STX is no comparison. It's loud, slow, and 38 inch. I put new blades and sold it for a $300 profit. Rescued the 108 from the scrapper. It will be something for the kids to have fun on. Then bought 116H. Engine good, no deck. Bought second 116 no motor with 46" deck. It will give up all remaining useable parts for 108. So now I end up with 2 hydro units 48" deck, 46" deck for a net investment of -$100. That's why I like the deeres.

Edit. Forgot about the LA125. Neighbors blew engine, I bought it cheap. Was hoping to find used 21hp Intek but apparently they all blow up. Will take apart over winter, fix and sell in spring.

Nice collection. I got 2 111's that I am working on and one for parts, a 1968 112 (future project), and a rear engine 56. Where do they come from? I started working on lawn tractors a couple of years ago for a hobby. I started with a 1975 Power King. At last count I have over 20 tractors of various makes lying around. Some whole and some for parts. I think we all have the fever just a little bit :)

I like the old ones too. I have not mowed with the 116H yet, only driven if around a bit but I sure like it. I like the sound it has. Very unique. It's not as good of a tone as the big onan I have in the simplicity but it's pretty cool. I guess I just like how twins sound.

. I didn't intend to have a collection. Lol.
I want to find another 108 or 111 for the kids. I know they will fight over the one I have
If it wasn't for my wife I'd have WAY more tractors.
