    Check out this VERY clean tractor, belonging to Randy Tracey (Tacey) ...

    Randy says: "The Rig."   How about that rear weight?   Take two old leather belts and strap 'em on.   I am looking for old wheel weights.   Now snow this year anyways...

       

    Front view.   I bought the thrower for $150 from a local dealer.   New bearings, paint and she's ready to work.

    Sets pretty clean, don't she?

       

    That's an aftermarket dump cart.   Dealer had 'em on sale for $115.00

    Control panel.

       

    The deck.   Painted it with "POR-15" then "Hard Nose" paint.   Pretty solid. The whole lineup...

    The tractor is a Broadmoor II 6011, MFR No 1690347. It is a 11 HP Briggs single cylinder, 3-speed, with a 42" mowing deck.   I bought it as you see it, except for a little paint, from the original owner.   I have less than $1,000 invested in the whole thing, including all the attachments, any parts and repairs, any painting, and even including tire chains.   Not bad, considering I almost bought a new Deere Spin Steer for 5 grand (would not have had the thrower or cart, either.)   Plus, the Simplicity has much better quality of cut.

    I couldn't resist throwing in a picture of the ol' F-100 (1980).   Guess I just like old iron; or maybe just like cheap stuff.
