      BWR- nope, no backhoe. Got all the piping for it, even the swivel seat and mounts. The PO told me the other PO took it off and sold it....Then they welded the piping shut for the lines going to the back Not the worst thing , but sure would be neat to have the D-100 hoe on there, along with the underslung counterweights. Not the easiest to find.....

      Good all around machine for my needs.

      HVAC_ I agree he needs a tractor! If only for the purpose of moving a boat around the yard!
      Not on facebook, not on twitter. Never gonna be.

      Getting another small unit this week, 1967 Simplicity 717 Broadmoore. Wifey thinks its cool. Just gotta figure out where to put it.
      A boat is a hole in the water surrounded by wood into which one pours money

        Someday I guess I will buy a tractor. Just a matter of time (to get the funds) and research. Definitely need a little one on my 1.36 acres. Lots of slope to deal with, so earthmoving capability will help me do some terracing. No lawn here at all... just weeds and wild grasses in the summer. I have my neighbor do some bush hawging for me. He suggested that I just get a little riding lawnmower for routine duties and that he'll be around for the heavy lifting with his old Massey. However, he has no grading equipment, etc., so I'd end up having to rent a loader/backhoe to do the work he can't. That gets into the whole buy/rent tradeoff thing. I saw a JD 2305 on C/L the other day, which got me fired up again. Heh.

        Personally, I'd like to have something like this Kubota:



        But then again, classics like this old Panzer are really neat:



        HOWEVER - I am NOT interested in something crazy like this one!

                    Hey Vegas...I think I drove past that tractor last week

                    If you need some winter pics of the tractor let me know.


                    BTW(mini hi-jack) We've used Kubota's for my entire life on our propery up north. Grandpa loved it since he could still get some serious work done well into his 80s

                    Huron Sr. upgraded(and got 10k trade-in on a 25yo machine) to a newer, larger Kubota two years ago so he can run the huge snowthrower attachment on the front to battle lake-effect snow. He also has the normal grater and box grater(for the private road upkeep) and the bucket(great for hauling and hoisting deer). Haven't been able to convince him to get the backhoe attachment so I can start digging ponds and trenches all over the property

                    Now if I could just convince him to keep the dang roll bar up

                        This one intrigues me! Looks like a Ford 1210 that I saw the other day. Does anyone know if this old Sears tractor has a PTO or who actually made them for Sears?

                                Yeah, I guess it expired this morning and hasn't been relisted. It's a Sears garden tractor, perhaps an SS16 with what is likely an Onan 16hp engine and Hi and Lo range transmission. The loader bucket is electrically operated. Doubt that it has a PTO on the back though. From the research I did last night, the little tractor was probably made by Roper sometime from 1983 - 1986. I'm not sure that it has enough "oomph" for the work I want to do around here, but it was cheap.

                                The asking price was $500, so I was keeping an eye on the ad.

                                As for horses... I like 'em and am zoned for 2 here, but costs are prohibitive for me.

                                Dunno that I'd be all that interested in mucking stalls though!

                                Here's the tractor:
