Man, If I could get Grandma to give me grandpa's Simplicity and attachments... I'd disasseble it, clean it, move it to the living room and reassemble it as a permanant art object! I couldn't ever sell something that sentimental to me. I'd make room for it. Doug

You know grandma trusted you to do what was right with grandpa's old tractors. I was given an old gun that belonged to my grandpa and I sold it some years latter. Do I ever regret that.:(sm02 Think about it real hard before you sell grandpa's stuff. Dan

There's something about operating a tractor that's been in the family for a loooong time. My 728 was bought new by my dad. I mowed on it as a young teen. He bought a 7016 new and gave the 728 to my grandfather, who lived across the barnyard. He had it for quite a while, then gave it to my then brother-in-law. Long story short, I aquired it after awhile, and put another engine on it. We have moved off the farm, into the suburbs on a half acre lot. It's the perfect size now. Every now and then I'll breakout into a big grin when I'm mowing, thinking about my dad and grandfather who have both passed on. My son has already put his dibbs on it.

These guys are right, DONT SELL THEM!! Take it as a sign you'll have a new place soon, or say with the current economy I'll only get a third what they're worth, or I have to keep gramps tractors or whatever it takes but KEEP THEM! Think of this: It's next spring, and your mowing with a 3hp MTD pushmower..... :D:D:D:D:D
