    Here is my baby. She is a 2003 Ingersoll 4020 with a 20hp onan. I have a 48" snowblower, 48 mower deck, 42"rototiller, sod plow, disk harrow, 3 pt hitch with PTO, and a cab for the winter. I also have the little trailer to haul all my firewood from the processing center to the stacking area. Thank god I have her as we got 70" of snow in december and 72" since January up here in Southern Maine.

    Here's my other huge hobby. 2005 Kioti 30HP diesel, 4x4, hydro tranny, brush hog, box blade, etc. I have a 10k rated trailer that I haul it with. The bugger weighs 4500 lbs as pictured.

    This thread is going to kill me. I spent summers as a youth on an uncle's Iowa farm, and I love tractors. My
    wife has drawn a line in the sand and said "no tractors, ever." It doesn't work for my hilly
    forestland anyway, but what great tools. I've got a friend dangling a Ford 8n with a bucket
    and brushhog. I don't think I can sneak it home or hide it in my woods.

    Boy would I kill to have that Kubota! Anyway this is my 73 Wheelhorse. Almost as old as I am and clearly in much better shape.

    Here is my tractor that I use to plow snow, work up the garden, and haul my wood around. It is a 1940 Allis Chalmers B, hand crank only. Have had several other tractors over the years but this is the one that I kept. Cranks right up even when the temps are in the single digits.

    Very nice scrounger. Gotta love that old iron.

    I just picked up this old hoe last week. It should come in handy.

    Scrounger, an oil pull, holy cow!!!! Don't see those too often. Most I've seen at one time is at the Nittany antique machinery show in Centre Hall, Pa. The air is usually thick with smoke and sulfur smell there for a couple of days.

    This pic was intended to show the splitter, not the tractor, but you can see it in the background. Its a 580 CK Case backhoe. The others in the stable are:
    2 Allis chalmers hydro garden tractors (1 is just a mule, the other is for rototiller and 4ft mower deck)
    1 1939 Case VC with 5 ft mower deck
    1 1945? Case DC
    1 1942? Case VAC
    and my trusty old 1959 jeep Forward Control with Snow Plow, I add this into the list because it is more of a tractor than a vehicle.

    Here are two pictures of our Florida tractor (John Deere 6605, MFWD), soon to move to Maine. The thing on the back is a 6' Brown Tree Cutter, essentially a bush hog on steroids. Your can back it into 6" oaks and cut them down. I also have a root rake I had made to pull palmettos and pine stumps and a light blade. Bucket is a Deere 740.

    For the smaller jobs aka grass cutting
    Cub Cadet HDS 2165 w/48" deck (no picture)

    For the little wood jobs
    Arctic Cat 400 4x4

    I like that Simplicity in the first two pics. I was just given a Wheel Horse that looks like the one next to the Simplicity. It has seen better days, but the price was right.

    I love those old simplicity tractors and I like the duals on them. Couldn't kill the darn things. I still have an old B1 allis that is basically the grand dad to the running gear. I think you could bolt a v8 to them and the drive train would take it. Lots of small pulling tractors were made out of those with old vega engines and such. I don't have as many as you, but in total garden tractor/tractor count, I have 9.

    Now if I said that, Eric and Craig would kick me out . . . :bug:

    I'm looking for a 4wd case/Cat/JD hoe that I can use for fuel retrieval, snow moving, all the sh$$t left around here that needs finishing. I think someone will have to die though before I get the hoe. . .and I think I know who it will be!!!

    The old red IH bruiser and the newer Kubota that replaced it. Love the new Kubota, just wish it was as big as the old sucker. Someday I'll have be a M9540 or similar. The logging winch looks weird because the legs are up, its a Farmi 501. The baler is a JD 336.

    1964 Massey Fergusson MF20 with loader and backhoe. Thousand and one uses for a backhoe on a farm. Everything about it's operation is counter-intuitive. Push lever forward to go in reverse, pull lever back to go forward.

    1984 John Deere 755 - little runabout tractor. That's our 11 year old on it. He lives to drive it around.

    We also have a Cub Cadet garden tractor with a 60" deck for mowing, but the starter went out in it last year and I didn't get around to replacing it. Mowed everything with sheep last year. Saves on gas, at least.

    I'm still searching for my tractor. I can't seem to find one at the right price, that is relatively local. I've been searching for years and just can't ever find what I want. Wondering what tractor it is yet?

    A Gravely Model L. I want an early one, no electric start, wooden handles. Just can't seem to find it. Anyone selling one? HAHA
