I bleed green, they are what work the fields on the farm, but when I saw the deal on the AC I was all over it like flies on honey. I have a respect for all good machines. That leaves only the Murrays, MTD's, and Crapsmans out of the elite group I try to acquire.

Nice looking fleet!! But the B10 looks embarassed to be hooked to that green wagon.
I can't complain about the #50 cart, it was a freebie. My HS was cleaning out the Ag Shop and the #50 was in there because it had a flat tire, and the shop teacher knew I collected JD stuff, so he called me out of class to come and get it. I was all over that as I was the Big Ten like flies on honey.8D

That 'green thing' on the far left is the money maker in the group. It pays for the other 2 to be able to even be in the picture.:D

Yep, its green carpet (soon to be gone). The JD 140 is a 1969 model. It is considered an early 140 because it has the 3/4" wheel spindles on the front and has the old style sundstrand hydro. The 140 got a larger hydro in 1970 and 1" spindles in the front in '70 as well. The same hydro was used in just about all of the 300 series tractors (the 140's newer replacement), namely the 318 which was made from '83-'92. The '68 models had the 12hp Kohler K-301 while the 1969-74 tractors had the K-321 14hp.
