An early Christmas Present .

I picked up a great machine today. A 1967 Landlord 2110,all original and a well kept 1 owner.I had sold a new Excursion Diesel to a local Simplicity,Toro,Stihl,Ariens dealer and casualy mentioned to him that I really was looking for a good used one.He called me yesterday and said he had taken one in on trade,that they had serviced since 1967 when they sold it new.I went to take a look and I almost fell over.Recently had deck redone includeing spindles and a lot of new parts,new carb also.Garage kept all these years. I couldnt beleive it when he asked what I thought it was worth.Well I made a fair offer,but also keeping a little edge in what I really would have paid for it.He said yes as he was extremely happy with his new Excursion and that I had given him the best deal out of 5 other dealers.Not only on the new one but on the trade also.{ 2002 F350 Crew Cab 4X4 Pickup ,diesel, 21000 miles}Like new,which I already had a home for.I am so happy I had to let you all know.Everything has been done to it over the years,by the manufacturers recommended services.All I can see right now is a paint job,and I might not do that.As far as I can see tonight is that it needs NOTHING !37 years old and not even a puff of smoke !Runs as good as it looks.He just bought $10.000 worth of tractor and implements.The blades are like brand new and all belts were replaced 2 months ago.All bearings and gaskets were done in april 2004 everything is new on it. The best part is I did not sneak around my Wife to do it,I actualy asked if she had a few bucks laying around and she said yes.That really was the best part. This are its #s Landlord 2110,serial # 2347,990432,Briggs 10 H.P. model 243431,type 012301, code 6710041.I am a happy guy.I think I will just degrease it and wax it up this weekend.There is not a loose part in the steering.It also has the rear mount for the weights,tires were replaced 18 months ago.I really cant beleive it has happened for me as I have had a rough couple of years,work wise and health wise.I am not a braggert ,but I had to share my feelings and emotions with you that share so much with me.I have read in this forum about many others that have had this great feeling.It really is awsome. !! I also have been doing a 1962 Jacobsen 100a and I think with a little help from here that I may be able to modify its 36" single stage snowblower,and 42" plow to fit this machine or My 1970 3212V.Has anyone here done that befor? It really looks like it is not going to be a big deal. Thanks for letting me share this all with you "Yes Virginia,There Is A Santa Clause" Pete. PS Kirk.I have done what you asked me to do,and I am able to do a little more as soon as I send my dues in.And Joe thanks for your help also.Maybe there will be time for us to get together this spring.

Pete, that's great news. As the old saying goes, "What comes around goes around" so you must have done something good!! Though I don't see you post all that often I do remember you are here. I see you are a member, maybe you can post a few pics of your new found treasure?

Congratulations, Pete! Seems like whenever I find one it is either extremely rusty or a bunch of parts in a box. I haven't quite had the experience of finding one in the condition of yours. Hope you enjoy it. By-the-way, I have mounted a Wheel horse blade that fits all four of my tractors, and modified a Sears snowblower to fit my AC716H. If I can be of help, please PM me.

Good for you, Pete. It's OK to relate the thrill of a new tractor. Heck, last month I bought a long-sought-after Simplicity Garden Cart, and my head was in the clouds for days! That's what this place is all about. Enjoy! Tacey

Pete, That sounds like one heck of a great find, I am very happy for you. Like several of the other guys have said, that is what this site is about, telling about the finds that we make, talking tractors and general good fellowship. Now pictures man, we want pictures....;):D

Souds like your set for Christmas. If you've been really good maybe ol'Santy will bring you a barrel of fuel in your stocking. If it wasn't for buying gas I could afford more tractor stuff.lol
