Yes, I've got a lot of work to do. I want to get 3 of them running asap, then start a resto on the 57. I repair and sell mowers and tractors on he side and that gets in the way. I have to pay for my toys somehow.

Sure, friends are always good to have... I may have duplicated some pics from before. I admit, I'm a packrat! This started out only wanting just the green and yellow 57 model. I still need to find a 59 and a 62. But, I need to sell a few of the Craftsman and a Troy-bilt LTX13.5 I have. Most of this stuff I have found up in New Hampshire. Or I should say, it found me.

Wow I did not realize that you had so much stuff. I recognize a few pieces that found their way from NH to your collection  :dancingbanana:

  What I see is a wonderful bunch of American steel that isn't on the boat to china. Thank you for rescuing it from the scrappers. Every thing you can't use personally makes good trading material, someone out there is looking for it. Don

Husky- When I got that stuff from you, I was just getting started. Since that time, I've kinda gone crazy. I've been back to NH 3 times after my visit to you.  We've eaten at Sunny's 2 times so far. My last visit was to Walpole and that's where I broke my hip. I hope this year will be better than last Oct was.

Hey that's great! I thought you wound like Sunny's. I know everyone over there they are great people and food is great too. You've done well in collecting such a mass of steel in such a short time. I do hope that you are able to get some of the parts and pieces into a full running tractor with attachments. That would be something to be proud of for sure.

I have the 57 and a 56 that are first to get running again, then I have a 60 and a 61 to do the same to. I will do it when My leg gets better.

My ideal living space!

 

My boy would love it :D . Not so sure about his mother :mad2:

 

I have a reel mower for my RAM. A rare attachment in the UK

I have a RAM reel mower too so must be at least two in the UK.

I am really looking forward to seeing updates on these tractors when you are able to work on them.

I know I am occasionally startled to see something in MY shed that I forgot I had. Not too long ago, I was thinking that I needed to buy or fabricate the 3-pt hitch assembly for one of my 1250's, then the next week I found I had one on the shelf!

My problem is when I'm repairing stuff, I need something, then realize that I tossed it the day or week before, thinking I'll never need it!
