PostSubject: How many tractors do you own?   Sat Feb 13, 2010 9:21 am

Just wondering, Its always interesting knowing how many someone has. Unfourtinetly in Winnipeg its hard to get your hands on something cheap unless its from an older couple. Or you have to meet the right person, So these are my tractors

1971 Sears Suburban 12 with hydraulic front end loader (12 hp tecumseh)
1974 Sears SS16 with broken snowblower (16 hp beastly onan)
1975 Eaton Viking D6000. Right now 5hp briggs, Hope to get a horz shaft (8hp??) with a go kart clutch
1979 Craftsman with a 7hp tecumseh (unknowen model and year)
1986 John Deere OHV130 9 hp kawasaki plow blade and mower deck
1989 Craftsman II ATLT 12.5hp briggs, walbro racing carb, 11 hp head, locked tranny
1995 Ariens Commercial 16.5 hp tecumseh mowing tractor

GOOD LORD! Shocked

Did you remember all of those, or do you have this all written down somewhere? Thats alot of machines! You should line them up and start them all, at least the ones that run. That would be a funny video.

I have:

1998 Murray 12.5 hp mud masher

1990 Lawn Chief 11hp. this one is on lawn duty

1987 Craftsman 11 hp. The soon to be rock buggy

1988 Craftsman 11 hp. Donno what I'm doing with this one

199? Craftsman 10 hp, I think this one is destined for 40+ mph

It's safe to say that dangeroustoys has us all beat!

Im not sure on the years of mine without checking, but here goes:

4 Westwood (various deck sizes, on1 10hp, one 11, one 12 and one had a 16 twin, all Briggs of course)
1 Simplicity 12/42 (i think) (Briggs)
1 Noma built Al-Ko oringally a 12hp flathead briggs, now a 16 twin.
1 MTD 18/40 something. (with a 16hp opposed twin)
1 Stiga Park Articulated mower (11hp Briggs)
1 AYP built Rally (12/36)

Just sold another AYP 'Johnsered' with snow plow and some shitty Teccy the last owner bodged on
And a Murray 8/30 with a lovely running Briggs.

So that makes my total 9 affraid wow

Most of them are going to be sold (apart from the MTD, Noma (my old mudding tractor) and either the Stiga or Rally, probably gonna keep the Stiga though, that thing is fun as hell to drive)

Fearlessfront: Yeah i wrote them all down- i got the year of the tractor off the engine ( almost all are briggs)- heck almost went to get a $25 parts craftsman today- but had to haul a load of junk ( from my kitchen remodel) to the dump.

The count will actually go down a few when i build the wheelhorse mod- im actually sorta thinking of putting the 96 back together again as a beater tractor sometime- i still want to repower the 94 mod murray and get the other 94 one going as well- right now time is pretty tight and its still pretty darn cold out still here ( payback for all my vids from november i guess- LOL) and i still need to run up north to get my last 3.....

dangeroustoys56: Is the 69 wheelhorse the one in your avatar pic? I like that one. I want one just like it, or at least something pre-70's. Its cold here too, you really gotta pick you days. its been between 25-35 degrees all week though. Not too bad.

CoffieAddict98: You gotta start somewhere! Until a month ago, I only had my murray and the lawn chief. Besides, Ariens are very nice and have a very rigid chassis, at least all the ones i've seen were.

Yeah, the only thing im not to happy about with the ariens is that it is a rear engine so its pretty hard to turn when your somwhat going fast. i might have a vid of it some where, if i find it i will put it up.

Fearlessfront: yepper- that pic was taken shortly after i drug it home - now its a pile of parts at the moment- got it free from a guy i used to work with, the 10HP teccy doesnt have spark ( still have it actually) and found out later the trans was missing the input shaft berings ( id like to use that for a 4x4 project)- im gonna leave the sheetmetal as is for the 'rat rod' look.

CoffeeAddict98: it takes a while to get a few tractors- back north i had alot of coworkers wanted to get rid of 2-4 tractors ( on average)- to get my 29 its taken since '06 actually ( -3 i brot with me) - usually id get 2 at a time, sometimes itd be just one- last year i got 4 at once - depends what i want to pay and bring home ( i usually get all the ones offered- get a better deal that way).

Im not a big fan of RER tractors - i had 2 rer murrays and a rer snapper- i sold the one murray, junked the other and junked the snapper ( rust bucket- but free) - i suppose if i kept all the tractors i bot down here id have almost 40 ( i took a few apart n junked/parts em).

I also ran across a screeming deal when i first moved here- a guy a few miles away had a pickup truck load of lawntractor parts and other assorted stuff for $100- included was a brand new 13HP briggs motor ( runs beautiful) - just have to keep an eye and scan craigslist , local paper and weekly flyers- deals will come around....

well i only own one my craftsman 11hp BRIGGS with 6 speed peerless tranny
but i do have
3 push mowers all briggs
3.5hp briggs completely rebuilt and has high compression so idk what the hp is if it changed any
6.0hp briggs completely stock but runs really great and smooth and quiet (its my silent mower)
and my i don't see anywhere 7.0hp ohv, she runs strong but isn't quiet like the 6 hp i guess cause it revs by govner a little higher.
and
3 weedeaters
2 are free weedeater brands which actually run great, and my ryobi 1hp

i know most of that wasn't a tractor but thats all i have

It takes time if you want to have a 'few' lawntractors - waaay back i used to only have 1, just to mow- never even crossed my mind going mudding/trail riding with it- then years later a freind of mine sold me a lil 70 toro - and that kick started my 'collecting' - before i moved south i had 12 lawntractors, down here i started with the 3 i brot with me- then today (including the ones still back north) im up to 29 and all but 8 run n mow( the 8 have no motors yet).

That took a while - searching craigslist, local flyers, asking coworkers n freinds , family, and driving around the neighborhood to get that many. Y have to be paitent to find tractors for the right price, search out the junker/non runners - those most people just want out of thier yard - cheep or free. Before i bot the one ( and got the freebie with it)from the flyer - it was well over a year since my last 4 ( found down the street) - so, just be paitent and keep scanning - dont hold off calling the person either, call em as soon as possible and go n get it as soon as possible ( that day within a few hours- including drive time) - otherwise it could be gone.

alot of mine came from coworkers , freinds n reletives - others came from craigslist , local flyer and freecycle. I go after the ones noone wants- the junkers/non runners - can either rebuild or use it for parts.

When i call to inquire about one for sale- i go get it immediately - i dont wait, some sellers get annoyed and just leave it posted or sell it out from under you.

If its the right price, i dont haggle - i really dont worry about the condition either of it since i can use it for just about anything.

The last tractor i bot for $25 - was cheep enough- the guy had just rebuilt the deck with new blades, the motor on it ran ( but needs a crank seal) as well- so was worth it. As a bonus he offered me a spare junk motor and a craftsman chassis ( just missing the rear fenders) for free- so was worth not haggling.

Some ive found for sale on the roadside - last year i saw 4 tractors in this guys yard - watched em for a while and called the number- bot all 4 ( haggled on the price- knocked $100 off) - which he was happy selling all them at once .

That was worth it for the 3 motors that ran - one was a 18HP opposed twin briggs horizontal shaft motor- the 4th ( isnt running yet) is a 20 Hp onan opposed twin- worth it just for those 2 motors.

My driving test is at the end of this month, so it should make things alot easier, although I wont be able to get a tractor in my car Crying or Very sad

But it'll be ideal for collecting freebies from my local gumtree. Alot of the stuff that goes for free on there I could sell easily enough!

I have huge problems getting tractors anyway, very little comes up for sale here, and people dont want to part with their machines if you go up to their door and ask, unless its for alot of money!
