Nominations Now Being Accepted for Featured Tractor of the Month for July 2011!
Posted June 12, 2011 - 07:28 AM
I realize the contest is set for July because of our patriotic 4th of July Holiday but this contest isn't just for USA tractors.
There are a lot of members here from other countries.
Lets see some patriotic colors from other countries.
They can be the colors on the tractor itself or any tractor that is displayed with the flag from your country.
So get your tractor out in the yard with it proudly displayed with your flag and get some nice photos to post here.
........ Time is running out. ................

It started off it's life as a model 70 but when I acquired it the engine was long gone and it was no more than a rollling chassis. I had an old K241 Kohler from a Wheel Horse in the shop so I dropped that in instead of the 7hp. With the exception of the engines a 70 and a 100 were the same machines so I have no guilt over calling this a 100 now instead of a 70. There were no fenders on it when I purchased it and the steering wheel was badly crooked as well as the hood being damaged. I fixed the hood and opted to change the steering wheel out to one from a later model 82 series and boy does it make a difference in steering. It feels so much lighter now than before. I also decided very early on in the project to paint it like a CaseIH tractor. Changing the colors and the steering wheel was part of making it look more modern and to change it to something different. I also changed 2nd gear from the low speed found in 100's to the high speed gear set from a 106.

The murray on the right is the tractor my dad and I restored a year ago. It is a 1978 model and has a 11 hp briggs that is all original. It is sporting a american flag in the hood and ol glory behind her. This tractor by itself says america with its red paint and its MADE IN THE U.S.A sticker.
The tractor on the left is a 196? panzer 1107. This tractor hasn't been in the colection for long, but is one of my favorites. In the photo it is sporting american flags on the deck lift and the drive control. It is also blue and with the murray beside it the colors make red, white, and blue.

We got this tractor at the local JD dealer in my home town. I had stopped by to check on suitcase weights. It was sitting there just waiting for me to take her home. We are planning a full restoration in the future, but for now it will stay in her work clothes. She does have hydraulic lift, which was an option that not a lot of these tractors have on them.

I got this tractor from my buddy Matt in north TX. on a trade we did a couple months ago. It runs like a champ and pulls as good as any other 12HP tractor I've owned. Up until 3 or 4 months ago, I didn't know a thing about these machines, but they are nice tractors. She is also in her original work clothes.
