So, last night I bought the SS14 from the guy I bought the 16/6 from last week. It's had a long hard life, but still runs and drives great. Hopefully, this is the last one I buy. Now to start accumulating attachments! Came with a dozer blade(forgot to get a picture of that). I put the old style mower deck on this one, and I'll put a new style on the 16/6. Mowed the front yard with it and it runs great. It'll need a seat, the one on it is cracked, or I may weld it depending on Ebay having a seat or not.The coil and regulator were placed on the outside of the engine compartment by someone, I'll have to see about relocating those. Original tires all hold air and have minimal weather cracking. Has the under seat toolbox, but the tail light is busted, already have one of those lined up I think.
He has a Suburban 10 for sale also, but it's the older grill style I'm not real fond of, I didn't look it over, so no idea what it needs if anything. Well, I did notice it needs front tires and wheels. I told him I'm mention it here so if any one is interested in it, let me know and I'll give you his contact information, he's near Slippery Rock, Pa.

Here's a couple pics of the SS14

Geez, getting to the point where if I want to see a Sears, I gotta find out where Gibby lives. Don't buy them all... LOL

Kidding aside, nice 14 there. Glad you got it.

Good looking tractor. I don't know much about them, but anytime I see one or a picture, they just look like a sturdy well built machine. I think it's something about the grill that appeals to me.

( Hopefully, this is the last one I buy.) I said the same thing several tractors ago.

This is Sears number 5, then there's the 4 Cubs, 3 John Deeres, 2 Gilsons and a partridge in a pear tree.

Also, I want to apologize for lying to you all. I think we all know this won't be the last one I buy.

Hey, Gibby. Line them up for a herd shot, including the partridge. We'd like to see them all. Nice SS14, thanks for sharing.

Right now, just a 10x14 tin shed I can get 4 in. I'm working on getting a small wooden building big enough to hold all. There's a thread here where a member shows his shed stacked with tractors. It's a very efficient use of space I'll try to emulate.
