well the oldest one i owned was an old 8hp briggs lawn scout, i took that thing everywhere, and i don't know what tranny it had but it was a 3 speed and i broke somthing in it too, i had to hold the whole shift rod and turn it, i don't know what broke but you couldn't shift by the nob, i miss that tractor, it got left behind in west verginia, and a the time i couldn't drive and get it but, i figure its long gone now Sad
but i got a new craftman tractor which used to have a 38in deck with a 11hp briggs, i got this thing for free cause the guy said the motor was locked up, i took it, and looked into it and all it was, was that the plastic starter gear was lodged in the flywheel teeth, but i unloged it and i still use the same gear, i don't know how he got it stuck, so i have a really good motor, change the oil every season but i might do that more often if my mower is a off road tractor now.

My oldest tractor is about 82, not that old really.

My oldest motor is a 6hp horizontal shaft 1967 Briggs, with a sheered timing key, but I cant get that damn flywheel off to change it ):

My oldest tractor is a 69 simplicity- i got free from some guy an hour north of where i live now- sat for 20 years in his barn, original 8HP briggs engine came in pieces ( which i still have) but i didnt want to mess with that, so i put a newer 10HP briggs on it- i did a cosmetic restore on it since this picture was taken:

Whats your oldest tractor you owned? 23689810

I sorta wish now id of left it alone.....

The next oldest is a 69 raider 10 wheelhorse- also got for free:

Whats your oldest tractor you owned? 80710010

This thing is a total mess- besides having most its parts missing, it doesnt run ( no spark) - then found the trans doesnt have any input shaft berings - i had intended to possibly mild restore it, but its too far gone. Its going to be resurected as a future project- a super mod lawntractor- using a 03 bolens chassis and the wheelhorse sheetmetal- lowered and totally modifed.

My next oldest is a 70 toro with a 5HP briggs that has electric start ( surprisingly) :

Whats your oldest tractor you owned? 25976813

This pic was when i used to take it mudding - put larger wheels on it - since then it went back almost to stock ( cept for another set of larger then stock wheels) - since i have 2 decks with it, i plan to make it back into a mower, altho ill need to modify a setup to engage the deck, since that part was missing.

That Stallion is pretty unique. Never seen one like that before. I'd say its older than the yellow Murray.
Again Memphis, the photos look good.

Yellow one is at least an 80's ( or older) murray - if it has the original briggs ( if it came with it) the 1st 2 code numbers stamped into the flywheel cover are the date of the motor- gives you a ballpark figure for the year.

Stumped with the Stallion- looks like either a Toro, MTD or Dynamark product - id say probably in the late 70's or early 80's. Does it have its data tag still? Im sure a lawntractor parts place could decode it ( my local place gave me the info for my 95 MTD lowes machine- was missing its data tag)- wrote the numbers down n got a complete parts list for it.

Cool tractors.

Sure is an odd one. I'd pretty much certainly say its not an MTD, but I may be wrong. It does have a Dynamark look about it. Perhaps before Dynamark was swallowed by a larger company or somehting like that. The way the chassis slops back like that remind me of a Sears

The Stallion is a Poloron but I haven't found much about their tractors just their snowmobiles. The yellow still has the B&S in it, after a little googling seems the engine is from the late 70's,

hey can you post more pics of them mowers? the yellow one kinda looks like an old murray or dynamark i had,kinda like 2 tractors in one ,, and the stallion looks like something i had too, i thought mine was a huffy . mine had a 8hp pull start briggs,a little tool box in the back , metal seat, had a round deck, single blade, the trans shift pattern was like a 4 corner square, with neutral in the middle. also had a tube frame around the motor, i always called it a roll cage Rolling Eyes ,
also the steering was wierd, there was a 17in strip of metal that went over the motor horizonitally, then bolted to the vertical shaft that went down under the frame.
could it have been a huffy or is it like your stallion?

Hey Memphis, that yellow one is the same body, front axle as my Craftsman/sears LT10. Hood is little different, and rear axle is different.

Oldest is massey 175, 1968, 60hp, 8,000lbs
