I bought this tractor from Dan Lonon (Rokon 2813 back in May of 2004.http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=32245&SearchTerms=HB-112I have used this as one of my main work tractor ever since. It is in good mechanical condition but since I mow with it and do some other work with it I have never did a restoration. It does have a 16 HP Briggs in it.Here are a couple of pictures that I took tonight after I mowed.

I took a couple pics of my 64 Landlord today while mowingI picked up this tractor this past spring with the intentions of redoing a few things on it to make it a little nice,but all I did was get a new hood for it.I had no intentions to use this to mow with but Its the nicest cutting tractor I got.Only problem is everytime I get a different mower I get a older one.I should be getting newer stuff but Hey You cant beat the 50 yr old stripes

      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!😁
