This load is from Lake Station, In.This guy lost an engine in the 3416He found the 7112 with a locked-up trans (just needs the bent screwdriver repair) and was gonna swap engines.But He couldnt figure out the changes from Briggs to Kohler so he put it all on Craigslist sm01

I have a few of these Vac/Blowers but this is the 1st one without a lever to engage it. Maybe it was made for later models with a cone clutch?

THIS is what closed the deal for me; the original vac trailer cover still in working condition sm01

This has a dealer tag under the seat just like my B12, its from the same dealer in Ill. called Yunker's Imp Co...

I forgot the extras...

Both have the OEM rear lift cables and the 3416 has the Electric Lift. It also has the Headlight buckets with 4 good bulbs. There is also a 42" Mower deck in good condition

Wow

It must be nice to have people call YOU with the tractors. That explains how come the astronauts claim they can see your tractors from space!:D

I too am addicted to CL!

I won't quit, but will have to slow down until I start selling some of the collection. I think these 2 brings my inventory up to 23 Tractors and over 30 attachments. sm00 (Actually, its 22 tractors and my wife's MTD PoS :D)

If you start saying "no" and stop buying tractors, that would make you a quitter. And nobody likes a quitter. A quitter never wins, and a winner never quits.

You're making me feel bad. I'm down to 2. And I've pretty much decided to put the Sunstar up for sale. I wanna buy a new 2 wheeled toy, and the SS is in it's parking spot :)

I have a hard time keeping up with more than 20 (did I really just say that?). I think there are 25 out there now...sold 5 in August! I used to change oil, etc, like clockwork when I had 2 or 3. Now I haven't a clue how to keep them all up to date. No idea how much use each one sees...I run them all for joyrides and various tasks (that are made up, and don't necessarily NEED to be done with a tractor), but usually just change fluids cuz I feel bad.

That, and the fact that I have waaay too much lead out there in batteries. We all know those are like gold.

If the hobby didn't pay for itself, I'd have a lot more space to store kid stuff in the shop. I keep telling my wife, some day I'll sell all the tractors and go buy my duramax without borrowing from our checking account.

I have two here to deliver to new owners in LaPorte, and a couple more someone needs to come grab...seriously. At least 3 of various vintages that need to find new homes.

Josh I only watch PM's on the 4 tractors I run regularly. The problem I have with ALL of mine is keeping good gasoline in them. The Sta-bil Ethanol fix helps but I still have to drain gas that is over a few months old. Living in a high air pollution region, the gasolines here SUCK!Ethanol 10 gas (standard gas) used to be fine but in the last year it has changed...about a 1 month storage life now, or your running on 3/4 choke to keep it going ngr2ps...will you have trailer space to bring that Landlord down to LaPorte for me sm01 I hope so, I have your stuff stored here for you too...(I almost put the Seat on my Deutz-Allis sm00)

Nice haul Greg. I like the looks of the early RBT's someday I'll have one when I get more funds. Running out of room though with 7 tractors total. 2 of them I'm trying to flip but they may not sell too well one's a 93 MTD & the other is a 82 Sears lawn tractor. sm02

      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!😁
