Was not enough for a blower and only machine that would clean this the way I like it is my SS10! So out she came! My back seems to suffer from riding it for longer periods but I 'll live with it! My favorite tractor! This is a LONG video! Did not realize how long I took doing it!

 

You may have to swap out the seat for something with back support, I know it has helped me a lot...as cool as the pan seats look I would like to use one but just prefer not to be in pain because of it. Right now I have an old seat with no padding left, but I can still lean back in it.

You know that might be why no one corrected me!? Even the guys who do nothing but Suburban tractor who I am part of say nothing! I looked it up myself on desktop and it is just 10. I don't care anyway, I sure enjoy my tractor! ;)

Someone told me it was a SS10 and only you ever said otherwise?! I was never an expert on any tractor nor claim to be. What model do you believe it is?

A lot of people call the suburban tractors "SS" models when they are only the standard suburban model. You have a 67 Suburban 10, the suburban 12 was made in 68. Sears made the SS12 starting in 67, but they were blue and white and had different grills, wood grain dash, wider rear tires, cigarette lighter. Any of the orange/white suburbans are just going to be the standard model, Sears only used orange in 67 & 68. That doesn't mean the SS models were any better, they just came with a few extras and painted a different color.

 

In the 10 years I've been into the Sears, I've seen 4, maybe 5  orange and white SS12 "specials" on the internet, must have been special order or something, pretty rare.

TAHOE99 over there, but I only make a guest visits now every few months to check up on my buddy DONEWRKN who is on his second scratch built tractor. Used to be active, but personal issue with the forum so I won't be a regular.

Its a good looking tractor and I also don't split hairs on lineage. SS stands for Super Sport in my book.

Nice looking tractor Eric and thanks for the great footage!  :thumbs:  It's always fun to see our machines in action.

 

Now you just need to find some other attachments for your WH.
