I really love this tractor! The more I drive it, the more I like it. I have not had any time yet to give it much TLC. I have not cleaned it up yet. This tractor has lead to me contracting tractor fever. I am already on the look for a second tractor. I would like to be able to restore a couple of them in the future. Hope you enjoy the pics!:)












Thanks for viewing!:)

Thanks for the compliments. That is a snow cab. It does have the hydralift. Rear weight and tire chains. I really like everything about it so far. I wanted a tractor that could put some work in. It sounds and runs great. It shifts really nice. I had the headlights and rear light going last night in the dark for the first time. That was pretty cool to be able to see at night. I do want to spend some time cleaning it up and eventually do a restoration after I educate and train myself on how to do it right. I would like to get this tractor a sister or brother but I am unsure of what models would be a good compliment to this one? This is the only one I have driven. Do all the implements crossover to all models?

If you get another "foot dragger", ie. without running boards, basically everything, attachments included will interchange. Newer styles, with running boards, most implements will interchange with minor differences in hitches, idlers etc.

Reed, I saw you live in MA so that is an option. I looked in your gallery, nice equipment! Is the loader for sale also?

Thanks Kent, I was just thinking yesterday how I understand why you had two of these tractors. The size is great for the average home owner. It maneuvers well yet is rugged enough, and fun to use. I haven't even put any implements on yet!:)

Jack, Just so you have some sense of its history, here's a post with the pictures from the member (StanD) that I bought it from: http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=30833&SearchTerms=3112V Here's a post with pics shortly after I brought it home, 8 years ago: http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=34584&SearchTerms=3112V Some pics my neighbor took shortly thereafter, with me mowing with it: http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=35636&SearchTerms=3112V Here's some old pics of it on FlickR, that you're welcome to grab any of that you'd like, for history and posterity: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kentthomas/sets/1356550/ -- shortly after I hauled it home from Wisconsin. Then a couple sets of snowblowing pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kentthomas/sets/1351788/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/kentthomas/sets/72057594063524822/ Also, here's the set I used in the classified ad: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kentthomas/sets/72157629697420038/ And, finally a movie of it blowing snow with the 12HP. We didn't get enough snow this winter to even really test that 15HP that I put in it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7QeVjG7big&list=UUHXWws8LtTEk-MbdDqdQt_A&index=9&feature=plcp

Kent, I am really going to enjoy going through these posts and pics. I looked at the first thread and I see that at one time this tractor had manual lift. When did you add Hydro lift? Thank you for sharing the HX I will have to save this!dOd
