  • Lets See your Tractors !!!!

    Hey Gang, I love my John Deere Garden Tractors ! Picked one up when i first got married ( LX176 ) made payments on that for 3 years !!! bought her brand new from the local John Deere Dealer.. then had kids and bought another house. bigger house.. less property ( 1/3 acre ) so my baby sat in the shed for a few years... Got busier at work and hired a local friend landscaper to cut the grass and at the same time another friend started bugging me to sell him my LX figured it would go to a good home so off it went ! ( still regret it )

    Here are a couple shots ... when i sold it with my little one driving

              Ok, found one of the pictures I wanted to post. If I ever fine my other picture of all three I'll post it.

              The Massey is no longer with me. I gave it to the wife's nephew. He needed a loader for work around his the house, which is his grandfathers house. So the tractor went back to it's orginal home. The 275 Massey was to big for what I needed around the property.

                  As I stated, the Massey went back home. Only other attachment for the Kabota other than the backhoe is a 5 foot Bush Hog. Great little tractor for 5 acers of land. It was my father-in-laws. Wife bought it foe me at the estate sale. Price was right, $10K. I was looking for a backhoe when I first got it and found out a backhoe was $11K.

                  It'll do what I want it too.

                    Here is a 318 i fixed up.. 18hp onan 2 cyl engine / hydrostatic drive / power steering / dual hydraulic controls / split rear brakes. Corrected everything that was broken or didn't work properly, sandblasted and powder coated all the Sheetmetal, added a 4 way hydraulic quick hitch, plow, weight bracket, fabbed up a custom thatcher mount and custom electric spreader mount for the rear ( dont mind the 316 decals ) loved that tractor but even with fluid filled tires , chains, and 300 lbs suitcase weights she couldn't make it up my icy driveway in the winter.

                        Looks great Joe, Don't feel bad about the driveway ice. I've got 2 JD's besides that Ford 650. A 318 and a 425. Only the 425 will make it up the driveway. The 425 only does snow plowing and garbage bin duty. We get a heck of a lot of drifting snow here in the sticks. The driveway is an 18% uphill climb to the highway from the lowest point, it's also about an 1/8 mile long. So I built a fixture to lift the garbage bins and the recycling bin up about 16" from the ground., using the hydraulics from the rear 3 pt. hitch. With the wheel weights, chains, and the weight of the bins, it has no trouble climbing that driveway. One of the bins is loaded with sand, so that throws about 300 more lbs at the rear end of the tractor. set back about 3' from the rear axle. Any more weight, and I'd need 'wheelie bars'. Once I've broken through the snowdrifts, it's an easy trip back and forth. The 318 is for garden work. The 25hp Husqvarna is the mulching mower for about 3-1/2 acres of grass I mow.

                        Thanks Bernd & Jim ! it was a super fun build.. The following year i fell into a non-running JD425 AWS on the super cheap. Got it back to the shop and replaced the ignitors and it runs like a top ! The 425 has posi rear and makes it up the drive with no issues. But i have to tell you i still favor the older JD's I'm in the process of rebuilding a JD 420 ( at the workshop ) and have a JD 430 diesel ( hiding in moms garage ) in the que. The missus isn't to happy with me considering we have only have a 1/3 acre homestead. but i guess i could get myself in worse trouble.....

                        JD 1050 and AC Big Bin 66 combine

                        My John Deere 1050 and Allis Chalmers Big Bin 66 All-Crop Harvester combine. The 1050 is now at Seashore because my wife and stepson aren't up to its manual steering.

                          That 1050 is a great midsize tractor.
