Thats a neat tractor, HANKG. I like the spring suspension on the front end, and like you say, the thrower looks to be in perfect condition. Looks the same as an early MF 10/12 thrower. Great entry.

Into the mix I will submit my Bolens 1886-04, I purchased it York PA. in 2001, it came with the mowing deck,a sno-caster and a tiller. Purchased from the original owner and had all the manuals. All original but the seat which really wasn't in to bad of shape, a couple of small tears so i took it off to save it from getting worse.
It was my first real exposure to using a Large Frame, I mowed and casted snow with it for several seasons and it was the one that started my Large Frame affliction.

My intentions were to restore it but has the years have gone by I think i'll probably leave it as is. I found an NOS power steering unit for it and my plan is to install it ... someday. These pics are from the last season I really used it, I fire it up still once or twice a year, let it out for some yard exercise now and again. My HT 23's have taken over snow removal and for the foreseeable future it will remain that way.
It's still enjoyable to saddle the old boy, listen to the Eaton rear end rumble and growl, the throaty tone of the stout Kohler K twin as it winds up towards full throttle and the enjoyment of operating what was such a solid piece of machinery sent out of Port Washington all those years ago... yup grinnin.

Sweet Bolens!!

I love a nice original tractor! Love that Sears suburban and I can't say I've ever seen a Homelite like that before!

Looks like a good group of survivor tractors this month. I have a couple I would enter but still can't post pictures from the computer and I don't have a smart phone. Good luck to all that try. Let's see some more.                                                                                                                                          Roger

I would like to nominate my 1975 Ford 145 LGT. I bought this tractor for mowing and pushing snow but after about a year found a deal on a Ford 165 LGT closed side with a 50 inch deck to mow with.      The 145 still has its original  paint no work has been done to the original  drive train but normal maintenance . It has the original wheel weights, hub caps, and sleeve hitch. It also came with a original Ford dump cart that has never been painted also all the lights and safety switches still work. I did have to replace the rear tires because of dry rot and the seat because it was ripped but kept the seat in hopes of finding new pads or having it recovered.    I still use it quiet a bit for pushing snow and pulling the grandkids around in the cart.        IMG_0279.JPG IMG_0278.JPG IMG_0277.JPG IMG_0276.JPG IMG_0280.JPG
