Got my fleet out for a picture today.

Recommended Posts


Got all my tractors out of the sheds today for a picture. From left to right is 17GTH-L with Kohler Magnum Twin & Tiller, 7117H with Kohler KT17 & Deck, Deutz Allis 917H with Kohler Magnum Twin & Deck, 7116H repowered with Kohler Magnum Twin & Simplicity Cart, 7117H with Kohler KT17 & Tiller, 7117-Semi Auto with Kohler KT17 Series 2 & Deck. As you can see, I prefer the RBTs with the Kohler Twin Engines.

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I put out a lot of mouse poison in both of my sheds. I found poison pellets this spring inside one of my spare mufflers and also inside a shop vac hose. I guess they died before they could eat all of the pellets. I think I was lucky.

Nice machines. I have had good luck using dryer sheets to keep the mice away.

I have 3 of these all with the boxer twins.

I have found that very smelly dryer sheets work the best to keep mice away. Pack them around the engine and I stuff Stainless steel wool or chunks of scratch pads into the large openings of the engine.

And they make the shed smell nice too!

      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!😁
