There are three of them with one vote which is surprising considering they are all great entries. I haven't voted yet because I can't decide. :D

Heck, I'm tickled pink my little Rugg has two votes. And I did not vote for myself, either.

Kenny I liked it better when it was painted Holstein. I MIGHT just give you a vote. Let me think a moment.:smile1:

I would like to nominate my 1977 Ford LGT 165. Since I live in the USA, it is always patriotic with it's paint scheme. (Unbeknownst to me, the Ford and windmill got together to show off their colors). I have had this tractor for a little over six months. When purchased, the Ford came with a set of chains, a 48" trip blade, 42" mower deck, 10" plow, and a 36" tiller.

So far, I have only used it to till my little garden. I have mostly been getting the motor back in shape and getting some paint on to slow the rust. I am going to continue to get the mechanics in shape this summer and build a few items to add to the tow hitch and tooth bar(harrow teeth). Hopefully, we won't get a large snow like we had last winter. But, if we do, I feel confident the Ford will get the job done.

I will look for some new rollers for the mower deck, and if these can be purchased cheaply, I will rework the PO's welds and get the mower working again. The spindles seem to be good.

The windmill does have a blue center, just hard to make out in the pics. George, here's the closest I could come to a T-shirt seat cover. Need to buy one of yours.(These comments may be omitted if need be)

Come on guys, lets get some more votes in here. Also, it is tough to beat these Deere guys, but I think it's still early enough to get a shot at em with another brand in the lineup. :D

Ducky, I was thinking of repainting the Ford green and yellow.:bigrofl:
'Course, red has crossed my mind, also.

P.S. It is going to stay as it is. It is showing it's colors every day of the year. Doesn't need a flag to be Patriotic.

Geez, I left for work this morning and I had half that Patio's votes. I get home this evening and find I'm closing on that sucker. My utmost thanks to all who have voted so far. That JD patio can't do what the Ford does every day. No flag is needed as she shows her true colors every day.

Looks like I need to do some campaigning for votes for my little crawler.
I realize that she isn't painted in patriotic colors like the rest of the tractors here but that sure doesn't mean that she doesn't love her country any less.

This little crawler is very proud to be 100% American made ( they didn't import parts back then ).
At every show she attends, she proudly holds that flag high in the air every single day so every one can see it well.

I do like your crawler, but I think most believe the Patio is the Holy Grail. Thanks for using it to display the flag.

Holy Grail maybe because they are not that widely found? I've always heard it that the Patio series was a flop for John Deere ,not because the tractors were poorly designed. Quite the opposite I believe as later tractors like my dads 318 prove, but because people wanted their JD's to be JD green and yellow. A point I will agree on but I gotta say the patio's have a unique paint scheme and are cool today. I personally prefer the Red version, but then again I am partial to that color.

That is interesting information to learn.
I think it explains why everyone was so reluctant to post their tractor for the contest this month.

I enjoy seeing them all win just tired of seeing the John Deeres win it seems like every other month, last a Massey won last month so I guess it will be fine if another Deere wins. My Case was beat out by a Deere the month before, and only cause I made the statement that my Case was about to overtake the Deere. I guess that lit the fire under the Deere guys to finally get their lazy votes in on the Deere. I just find it aggravating sometimes that it takes a comment like that to get the people that hadn't voted the whole time, to place their votes in the last 48 hours. It shouldn't be that difficult if you like a tractor; vote for it, don't hesitate.

Doesn't matter what brand wins, as it's the voters who have the say. But I would think more would vote.
I know....once voting is opened, make it to where nobody can post till they vote! :bigrofl:

But Casey, looking back, I only see only one JD ever winning & every month from April 2010 shows except for March of this year.
You must be visiting another site & getting things mixed up!

Daniel is right, so far the Tractor of the Month has mostly seen Bolens and Massey for the winners and it is nice to see some others for a change. So keep entering and trying, some day you can be a winner too :D :bigrofl:

Glad I was wrong! I thought for sure it has been favoritism all this time, just got the brand wrong. Wow to get all those Bolens and Massey guys to run away for a few months so I can have a shot lol.

I never looked back on actual results, I left that to the experts lol.
