Recommended Posts

I'm up to 17 tractors after todays purchase.I checked out some old A-Cs at guys home today.B-1,two B210's,36"tiller,3belt snowblower and 2 42" decks.They all run but need a little TLC,they sure did fill my trailer up.How about $475 for the whole lot.I'll get some pictures next week.

I have 5 at the moment. 4 are running. Due to storage space, that is one or two too many. Hopefully the club auction 7013S will be gone soon then it will likely be the 716-6 speed if the 720 works out. I'd love to have one with a deck on it full time, another with a tiller, another with a belly grader, another with dozer etc etc but I refuse to keep these machines outside. Brent

Brent, I appreciate your sentiments. I don't like the idea of any tractor sitting out and rusting away... I was trying to limit myself to 3, but then I was given this Gilson, whose fate is yet unknown... based on whether I can figure out the hydro problem (when I can find time to look at it)....

I have 11 with all but two inside, Sun41bird ask's a good question, What is the best way to store a tractor outside? I tried the tarp thing on a tractor a few years ago and swear it was worse than leaving it out. I think it traps the moisture in, more than it keeps it out, especially if its on the bare earth. When new tractors or quads are shipped I see they are on a big pallet and in a crate enclosed in plastic. Thats what I am gonna do this year with a few of them. Think Ill ask th question in Shop Talk and see if anyone has different ideas.

I've strung a tarp up on ropes tied to trees so if forms a kind of slant roof, used the kids old blow-up pool over two tractors, and just plain not had anything to cover them with. I've heard of using old truck caps (plain ol' shell type) as a roof over two or three tractors at a time, either resting on saw horses or right on the tractors.

I have a 4-wheeler cover I use on mine and its vented. It does pretty good and keeps the tractor dry when its outside. Currently I have 3 riders, one John Deere; a 1999 GT-235 54" cut, my Simplicity; a 1983 4211H 36", and a Dynamark 11hp with no deck. Hopefully after next weekend though, I'll have an all original 1974 John Deere 110.:D

Just remember that when you die, your wife or relatives either sells the stuff at give away price or just calls in a dumpster to have it all hauled off. Seen it happen time and time again....
