Former Tractors

Just wondering if any of you are or were able to keep tabs on tractors you've sold over the years ?

All that I've sold just seem to disappear , private collections ?  just curious , anytime I've bought I always wanted to know the history behind them. Just curious I don't see them anywhere.

My first large-frame was a non-running A/C 414S w/deck. Father and son bought it for a pulling project. I've seen it pop up on CL twice since then. Looks exactly as I sold it.

A 3415 I fixed up  years ago and sold  showed up at an auction a couple years ago. Bought it for $30 , repowered and sold it again...

I think the same guy that bought the 2012 hydro conversion  at auction still owns it...

@MDB I believe still owns the other 2 hydro conversions I did  (HB116, and HB-110) 

I sold a cheap Legacy to a long time friend of mine  I've known since JR hiigh school. Fixed it up for his dad to run since running a mower was all he could do after a stroke.  His dad passed away earlier this summer. He is now mowing a little with it. I have been doing most all the maintinance on it for the last 3 years

Stephen has my dads old 712H I passed on to him.

Ed England still owns and operates a 90's Landlord I once had.

I sold a 3314 w B series tiller to the wifes  nephew. I bought it back last year ( 15 years later) ( had been sittin out in the weather on a pallet for the last 10 years) Wanted the tiller arrangement. Gave the 3314 to  @B-16_IC who may still have it...

 Loads of others I have no idea where they are now....

Former tractors?  Who ever disposes of a tractor??  dOd

I still have my first 716H that I bought used in the early 80's.  Worked her hard and had two heart transplants and now ready for another.

I have had so many, I couldn't possibly remember owning them all much less where they went.  A handful pop to mind quickly, but others I enjoy seeing in old photos and remembering.  Some were nothing but a hassle, others were cherished. If I see a photo of one I owned, the whole story usually comes right back to me. 
 

Interestingly, I was at Fastenal today picking up the latest “prize”, and the young man working the fork truck asked me if I had ever used their service before.  I shared that I had been there a few times over the last 7 years or so.  I save most of the freight forms in a file on my computer and just checked after returning home…I have 111 of them, and they do not include the pallets I shipped OUT.  My smallest was a single weight, and my largest was this behemoth.

I've been planning on selling my restoration project since I began the project. I had no intentions of it taking this long or doing any of the upgrades I'm doing now. I'm not sure now though and I think I'd cry if my tractor came back like that to me.

Being new to the garden tractor scene   Are those hb’s hard to find. Those look like my kind of style.

Thanks PhanDad.   That wasn’t hard to find at all.    I just clicked a couple of buttons and there it was.    I think the hard part would be paying for one though.
