Steve, I think you have a great candidate with the W.H. Commando 6. I don't see any issues with it.


Maybe George should send in an expert to confirm the parts numbers are OEM:bigrofl:

Steve, I would consider your Commando to be a "survivor". It is not restored in any way.


Yes its a survivor .... survived several transplant surgeries:bigrofl:

I would like to nominate my 1970 Massey Ferguson MF7 Electric Start

I got this in december right after cristmas on craigslist for $250. I was really surprized when i got to the guy's place because the origanal paint looked way better in person than in the craigslist pictures. When i got home i found the snowblower to have been barely used and the deck to be in great shape. it even has all the origanal belts! But at one time someone replaced the seat and also put a different muffler on it.

The origanal H70 tecumseh has been gone through, and i mostly use it for pulling around a dump cart in the summer and it runs and drives great! I'm even going to pick up a set of origanal wheel weights for it tomorrow!

This is my montgomery wards 15 HP hydrostatic drive. I have owned it for just a few months. But I have seen this tractor for over two years parked under a neighbors pole barn. When it went up for sale I jumped on it.

It has taken some time to get going, although it did not need much. A carb rebuild and a new piece on the steering linkage a battery and alot of PB blaster. It has been up and running now for three whole days. This tractor has spent its whole life on the same street.

The near future will see a new set of rubber, a new set of headlights, working on the purchase of those from another member. As for implements it came with a 42 inch deck and a rototiller. I plan on using both of those alot. I also picked up some old sears stuff a single bottomplow, a front mount blade and a sears manual 3 point lift. All of which will be put to use on the wards.

My son and I have really enjoyed working on our garden tractor. Today it had my yard trailer hooked to it. Hauled off an old trash compactor out of the kitchen. Brought some wood out for our fire pit for todays bbq. Pretty much the wards has been on party duty helping get ready for tonight.

Totally missed that and I read over it twice.. Don't worry, Daniel will get you all fixed up, otherwise if I had read it correctly I would have gladly helped you out.

My apologies .... I am in the chatroom with these guys a lot since I recently joined here and we toss some friendly insults back and forth for the fun of it.... I did realize this could be taken the wrong way..... in this forum.... and so I did make a serious post afterwards ..... appreciating his efforts to salvage this tractor.... which I intended to do anyway.

.... My posts were only intended to tease

.... sorry for this mishap ... I will think a little more before posting in the future.

Easy to get carried away, that's why there is a chat room, because the chat regulars understand you more than the regular poster. Only reason is contact time, you get to know more about people by talking more real time, in a more unrestricted environment.
