Ok for this months TOM I'm going to submit not 1 but 2 3112v's. Known to me as the "Twins". Neither tractor has been restored, so both tractors have a "patina" of sorts. It's rather hard to find one let alone 2 that are in this condition unrestored and ready to work at any time!

Thing 1 is equipped with an overhauled and repainted L112 or known as a 515 Simplicity Loader. The bucket is a reproduced replacement. It also sports the original 31x10.5x12 Goodyear terra tracs in the rear as well as the original Goodyears on the front. This tractor also came equipped with the optional hydro-lift and head lights.It has the original (to the best of my knowledge) 12hp B&S that runs flawlessly. I use this on a weekly basis for whatever chore that suits it. Thing 2 is currently equipped with a 990538 sickle mower and a set of dual rear wheels with 6x12 ags. The dual adaptor are an original NOS set that I got in an ebay tractor/parts deal many years ago. This tractor was a craig's list find purchased as a non-runner, though it too has the original 12hp B&S engine that also now runs flawlessly as well as a now overhauled hydro-lift. Note that this tractor also has a right hand lift lever as well as a factory front/rear ball hitch mount currently mounted on it. That's all I can recall on these two for the moments any questions or thoughts are welcome!

My submission, a 1968 Simplicity 2110.

I've owned this tractor about 12 years or so. When I bought it, the 10HP Briggs was blown. So I was going to part it out. Placed a few ads here, not much interest. So I decided to resurrect it.

There just happened to be a 10HP Briggs sitting in my shed, so I installed it. Got it to where it ran good, so used it for a few years that way. Changed the BGB and trans fluid. Then I decided to repaint it. The color is Allis Chalmers orange, from Rural King. The white is RustOLeum white. The stripes are from a Komatsu excavator, PC150 I think. Headlights are from AutoZone, I believe.

I built a battery box for the back. It fit's a full size battery, and also serves as weight. The taillites are trailer marker lites. Seat is a Craftsman I had. This tractor is strictly for snowblowing, so it still has the chains on it. Front axle, tires front and rear, are from a B210 I parted. Judging from the response so far, these tractors must be somewhat rare, or not as popular as some, so I hope it makes "Machine of the Month".

My submission. The tractor that got me started, my B-208 with mower deck. Tried to get this tractor for years from a war buddy of my grandpas. I originally saw it at a show he was displaying it at. Finally one day he came up to me when I was working with my grandpa and told me I could have it. For $1. Needless to say I had to go pick it up immediately. Ever since then I have used it to pull my custom water wagon and to mow and to do odd chores. The deck came from a member on the site who actually told me about the site when I went to pick up the mower. This tractor has been a real work horse and has never let me down. I even had a Hydrogen fuel cell on it for a while. I built it for a science fair project and decided to try it out. This is by far my favorite tractor.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
