Hello, I live near Reading PA and I've been into machines forever and I just never get tired of fixing and maintaining them.
My first tractor (circa 1993) was an 80something Dynamark with a 3.5hp Briggs (I'll wait 'til the laughing stops).
My second tractor...a '68 Suburban 12 which I bought in 1995, repowered with a catalog Tecumseh H100, and restored twice, 15 years apart. It's my plow tractor/wood hauler and all around heavy duty machine.
Next is my Simplicity 5512.5 (12.5 BS Twin) which is my backup grass cutter- year unknown
Then my 1992 John Deere 240 (14 Kawasaki OHV) which is my primary grass cutter- I baby it and fully expect it to be the only mower I ever own
Next is my 1982 John Deere 111 (11 BS Flathead) which is simply a fine little tractor- sincerely a joy to use.
Finally, the one I keep just for riding/mudding/abusing is a 95? Crafstman (18.5 BS Twin) with Ag tires. She's heavy and has always naturally had decent traction for being unlocked. I don't care for the stock steering, but otherwise it's not a bad ride.
