More winter projects! Two Broadmoor II 6008s, one with a working mower deck. The one with the mower deck has a siezed engine, and will soon be a 6011 after I replace the motor. The other one, which the seller called a 'parts tractor' actually runs, but smokes bad. That one will be rebuilt. No parts were taken off the parts tractor--it's complete! The one with the deck appears to be a 1981, judging by the motor numbers. The tractor number is 005246. The ID plate/sticker for the one w/o the deck is gone, except for a corner w/ no number. The motor on that one was built in 1976. Don't know if motors are orig.

Hi Elon--the tractor in the background is my Agway (Murray) I use for the lawn. I have Kirk's leaf vacuum I got from him at Colchester mounted on the back, and made the leaf trailer out of a 5' X 6' trailer I pulled out of the woods on the property and got rolling. I framed it with leftover wood I had in the house and aluminum screen. It held up okay, but the interior-grade wood warped after the first rain! I need to weld a frame together, when I learn how to weld! Nothing is original as far as the leaf collection system goes--The tube from the mower deck is a modified MTD one, and the hose I got at the tractor supply store. A few rivets and large hose clamps and I was in business. Very strange machine. Cherry, but strange. Like an OK/average frame, with 5-lug wheels! Why? I will take that tiller, but don't know when I can get up there. Doing the wife's rear main in her subaru (+clutch, all gaskets and seals, etc.) This weekend and hopefuly finishing by next weekend, before snow flies. I'll IM you.
