I took a video today of some of my garden tractors awaiting TLC. A bee started bugging me right away so I didn't crawl in to show each tractor as well as I'd have liked. They are a Sears Super 12, Sears 16/6, Sears Custom 10XL with manual 3pt hitch, Sears HydroTrac, Bolens H16 hydrostatic/hydraulic lift, Simplicity 3012V and Simplicity/Allis Pow'r Max project.

I'm with Brian, bet the Power Max would pull the world around if you got it hooked up.

Interesting collection of tractors.
That Power Max is quite the beast.

The grill on the Sears Custom 10XL looks like the same grill on an old mid 60's Sears Custom 6 that I have.
Mine has been on the "to do" list for a few years now.
Every time I think I'm going to pull it out and get to work on it, something else jumps in ahead of it.

Thanks for the video. I'd also like to see that Power Max going. Been a long time since I have seen one of those 4 cyl. engines. Nice collection.

The Super 12 probably has a newer engine since it has a small ring gear starter instead of a starter-generator. The guy I bought it from said the engine had been rebuilt. The dash has a crack in it otherwise it's not too bad. It is missing the amp gauge. Normally it'll start on the first or second pull. I've had the Custom 10XL running but the carb needed to be cleaned as it was leaking. The Powermax has a three point hitch and rear pto. Although the electric clutch is missing for the pto. It didn't come with any attachments however I do have an original 54 inch snowthrower for the Powermax but it's missing the hitch. About 5-6 years ago I had over 120 garden tractors of all makes. After my father died and then our pole shed collapsed I decided to downsize. Half the fun of driving around the state collecting interesting stuff was spending time with dad.
