If it's alright I'd like to nominate my '77 Sears GT 18. It is isn't the prettiest tractor out there but that's ok. It is a work horse. I have owned it since May of this year. This is my fourth Suburban over the last 15 years or so. I just sold a '71 SS 12 I have had and used for about 8 years. I seem to find them, fix them, use them for a while, then find something new to work on. It is going to be kinda hard to find one better than this old girl.
I had to put a carburator kit in it, i also changed the transaxle oil, motor oil, spark plugs, put in a new battery, etc., the stuff you usually do with a tractor that has been sitting for a few years. Now she starts right up and runs great! It pulls my plow with ease thru the garden. It came with a snow/dozer blade and a 48" rotary mower.
The photos I posted are of the tractor sitting on top of the sweet corn silage I had just created back in July, and of the tractor pulling a plow today thru the garden next to my tomatoe plants. About the only thing left in my garden today is tomato plants. The heat this summer was very rough on everything I planted. But, all is not over yet. When I get done plowing, I will till some and then plant some fall radishes and lettuce. It ain't over 'till we get a hard freeze!

We could use a few more tractors here. I know some of you are having flood issues at the moment, but there are a lot of us who aren't. Where is your entry?

We are going to close nominations by tomorrow night. So if you would like to have a chance of your tractor being GTtalk's featured tractor of the month you need to get them nominated.

You are more then welcome, along with anyone else to nominate their garden tractor, but unless you follow the guidelines in the first post then we cannot accept a nomination.

Well let's try.

We (me and my brother) acquired this tractor about 3 years ago. It came to use with a deck, blower, and tiller. We completely disassembled the tractor and repaired as required and painted everything and reassembled. It does a lot of work for use tilling my brothers and my gardens as well as snow duties for one of my nephews through the winter months.


Here it is at my place tilling ground for pumpkin and squash planting. My brother is at the controls. We attempt to keep the tractor looking as good as possible but it does have to work for a living as well as going to tractor shows. It was part of our MF/Snapper display at the Chilton Steam show this year which featured MH/MF this year. I am proud to mention we had the largest GT display at the show this year.

I am going to renominate the Caterpillar this month so I need to go get it out of the favorite implement thread and revise it a little for this month. I assume it will work even without a harvest, I mean it is plowing LOL. Will post back in a few minutes as to my success lol.
