4. This contest is open for owners to enter their own tractors, or by having someone else nominate them - upon which owner must accept and post entry.

5. The contest is limited to the first 8 entries submitted. This due to the poll system only being able to accommodate 8 entries. Following the 8th entry, the contest topic will be closed to further entries. Votes will be taken in the normal time frame as stated below.

6. Post your entry as a reply to this topic. Narrative and pictures are required - This to tell its story, and to convince voters why it is deserving of being the next Club's tractor of the month.

7. You can enter a tractor/equipment multiple times (months), but it can only win once per year. Once that tractor has won, you cannot submit that tractor again for a year on any subject.

8. Each contest will have a entry submission period beginning the 15th day of each month and lasting to the 15th day of the following month. Once the submission period is over, the current nomination topic will be locked and the next opened.

9.Following each months submission period, a poll topic will then be opened and members will be asked to vote on the nicest tractor listed in the nomination topic. All members and registered users are eligible to vote. Vote will last for a period of two weeks , from the 15th day of month to the last day of each month. The new winner will be declared on the 1st of each month.

10. Wining tractors each month will be posted on the club home page for a period of one month, 1st day of the month to the last day of the month, and a Contest winners hat will be sent to the winner.

12. All pictures submitted should be sized to 640x480 to maintain consistency and neatness in presentation.

Its the only way to get all your winning equipment, for such a contest, in the picture on the Club home page

13. Final vote results will be posted to Poll topic at the time the Poll topic is closed. These posted results are the official, and FINAL results that will determine the winner each month regardless of any further votes cast After the polls have been closed. This is stated because while replies cannot be made after a poll topic is closed, apparently votes can continue to be cast. Its a technical issue that we have to work around at the present time.

14. In the event of a tie, the following procedure will be in effect. The tied winners will share having their pictures posted on the Club home page, each having an equal amount of the months time in the spotlight. There will only be one hat awarded though, and so there will be a run-off vote between the tied members for the hat. This vote will last 2 weeks. The winner of this second run-off vote will receive the winners hat.

OK folks, we are now moving the Tractor of the Month contest into the Talking Tractors forum AND opening it up to not only paid club members, but also to all registered users as well.

Before entering these contests, please do take the time to carefully read the contest guidelines posted at the bottom of each months contest topic. This will explain how the contest works and what you need to do to enter.

Please do not post questions in this, or any other contest topic, rather I am creating a Questions about the TOM(tractor of the Month) contest Topic. We don't want to clutter the contest topics themselves up with anything but entries.

Here is the link to the Questions about TOM topic:

http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=144105

You can also PM me with any questions...

Have fun!:D

This year is going to be a brown one according to the weather people, but a year ago, there was more then enough to go around. After I get my driveway slab cleaned the snow needs to go across the front of the house to my empty lot. Last year's was a 36" blower but I hooked on to something and bent rotor. This year it will be a 42"7116 tractor hydro all the way.Working >>

Here's my Allis B-208 plowing snow last winter. My street is only one block long and dead ends, and our county does not take care of it. So I'm the road crew. I plow the street and my neighbors' driveways. In east central Indiana last year, we had TONS of snow. Finding places to put it was my major hurdle. That tractor will move snow! After the season where the pivot was welded broke away. Found the piece on epay and got it fixed. Also have a 727 with blower for this winter.

Since the pics do not have to be from this year, nor of a tractor I still own, I'd like to nominate the all-original Simplicity 3112V that I used to own, now owned by member Jack Sarro (jsarro).Here's a Youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7QeVjG7bigAnd some pics:

Here's a topic posted by Jack just after he'd bought the tractor, with more recent pics. If you scroll down you'll see where I posted links to several different topics with pics that essentially show and describe the history of the tractor, from the time that Eli and I took a road trip to Wisconsin to bring it home. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=121495&SearchTerms=3112V

About a week to go before the nomination period ends and the vote begins. We have room for 4 more entries.

Nomination period will close early in the morning on January 15th, sooner if we reach 8 entries all together.

      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!😁
