Do you mean which models are most commonly owned among the membership or which are the rarest and most sought after. Here are the ones I've not had yet and wouldn't mind having: B-1 (I do have what is left of one but would like a complete one) HB112, HB212, and Big Ten. Also rare are the Homelites, Montgomery Ward Squires, the MW Twin Twenty (powermax built for montgomery ward), Deutz Allis and Allis Chalmers 920 Diesel, Simplicity 7018 and Allis 718 with OHV Kohler and the 1959 Simplicity 700 with the "wonder boy" designation.

Mark, For me, it would be a 4040, AC 920 Diesel, or a Pow'r Max. When I get one of those three, I'll be in dog heaven. :o) Antique-wise, I agree, the B-1, Big Ten/B10 would be very desireable for their cast iron drivetrain and cast iron engine. Truly, when these tractors are gone, they're gone.

When I first joined the club most of these guys wouldn't even acknowledge a 900 series, most of them have been converted.........

Mark, the most common tractor model that is owned by club members is "the large frame garden tractor" There, I think that covers it, can anyone argue?

Way down here in Alabama, a Simplicity is scarce as hen's teeth. I have a 64 Landlord, would invest in another similar to play with, if one became available close by. for me, the fun is in the fact that I am using something that was made in 64.

I like my round hood Landlords- I got started on them from old memories. My grandfather had Simplicity's for years starting with a Wonderboy 700, and later moved up to a Landlord- it was the first motorized machine I ever drove at about 8 years old. When I had the chance to grab a 1967 Landlord 2010 I did. Good, durable machines that if not pushed to do more than they are capable of will last for many years. I think the Landlord/ B10-110 Series may be one of the most popular machines in the club, but I have been wrong before;):D!

I'm recently new to this forum, I live in Central Illinois. I have a 310 and a 314. Heavy, tough old tractors. I still use them both. The 314 is my work horse, the 310 has a new engine and the following impliments: plow, roto-tiller, dozer blade, both sets of rear weights, 42 inch mowing deck and a cab. The 310 is my collection piece. Interesting to note: The cost for each was $0. They were cast-offs. It did take a little cash to get them back to use.

Kent can complile a list through the registry stats, no? The "most common" would be the one owned by the most members. Tacey I think that in general (outside the club), the most common would be the small-frame, Broadmoor-type. They were sold in the greatest numbers when new.
