I Would Love To Nominate My 1983 Allis Chalmers 912H. It Has Been Through Two Of My Friends Before I Got It. I Traded Another Tractor For It To One Of My Friend Who Had It I Use It For Tilling, Mowing, And Pushing; Rock, Snow, Dirt And Mulch With It. It Is All Original. Everything Still Got The Factory Shine On It Including The Deck & Tiller. The Original 12Hp Kohler Engine Is Still Running Great And Amazing. It Is My Workhorse Out Of All My Tractors

Not sure if our David Bradley walk behind qualifies as a Tractor? I believe it meets the other criteria. You have a good group of tractors to pick from now. It will not be a easy choice.

I will check back for the answer.

Regards,

 Chris

Here's my 1976 Case 220. I found it at my local small engine sales/repair shop in May '15. I get some parts there, especially when I'm in hurry. Cool place, old school. The owner was busy that day, so it gave me a chance to check out machines in the repair lot, where I spotted this sitting. The shop owner's brother walked over and shared it's background. One owner, and it was serviced at that shop since new. K241 Kohler, with 800 hours. I jokingly asked if it was for sale, thinking he'd say no. To my surprise, he said the owner was moving and was planning to sell it after getting it serviced. We fired it up, and after I took it through a little test run, I called the owner from the shop and we made a deal.

 

Original paint, decals, stickers, etc. Tires also, pretty sure. The only thing I never verified was the seat, so no claims there. There is some wear gathered through it's life, scratches, chips, etc., but overall she's pretty darn clean for her age. All I've done is clean/degrease it, and wax it occasionally. It is always stored inside, but it is still worked. I use it to mow an acre of flat field once a week during the season. And it pulls some boat trailers, and wagons, now and again. Starts every time on a 1/4 choke and runs smooth without a lick of smoke.

That's an easy answer, Kenny. Of course it's a tractor. We don't discriminate over how many wheels it has.

Just wanted you to make that statement! After all, you inherited this! And no, don't leave it to me!

I call it 'Dusty'  because that is the way it was when I found it.

1962 Sears/David Bradley Model 36 , 5.75 HP B&S model 143402

I found it on C/L in upstate NY and just fell in love with its obsurdity .

I made a deal and had it shipped to Michigan.

I fixed a broken chain , a spark issue , cleaned it up and I had to blast and paint the mower deck to preserve it .

Everything else is as it came

This is a working machine that mows my lawn , and makes me smile while I do it :D

There is no back story except that this was pushed to the side of the road and picked up by the guy I got it from .

It is an unusual machine , but a lot of fun to drive around .

There's only one problem here. If you've won in the past year, you can't enter again until the year is up. Since we just took rusty off the front page, Dusty is going to have to wait. Sorry.
