I did look up the numbers on it long ago,I think it was a 1894 model..the base part was missing,it was a treadle type machine, but the rest of it is still in nice condition..
Tried posting a photo off google images of one similar,but it wont print !.
Yep just a serial number. The newer ones had a letter code. The old treadle cabinets could be quite fancy. If the wife had it uncovered I would post a picture for you so you would know what to look for.

This thread is beginning to remind me of a bunch of old hoarders comparing how high the newspaper piles are in the living room!

Re: More than I need for size of my yard

As Tudor said, it's not the size of your yard that drives the number of tractors and attachments/implements - it's the scope of your projects. We have 1-1/2 acre that I tackle with a Kubota BX23, 62 Gravely LI and 69 Gravely Commercial 12.

For the Kubota have:
FEL, Backhoe, MMM, cultivator, box blade, landscape rake, core aerator, 26 gallon sprayer, front blade, 3 pt vac, Cyclone Rake vac, wing plow and customer cab with heat...

For the Gravelys:
Snowcannon, blade, 40" commercial deck (x2), steering sulky, normal sulky, sulky cart, stump grinder, triple gang reel mower, sickle mower, rotary plow, planter drill, power brush and some other stuff

Not much land, but 500' driveway and lots of retired neighbors who like to have their driveways, street and sidewalks plowed. Every snow we get 4" or more I go out for 6-8 hours. Love it. Isn't that normal??? (tic)

BX-23 MLB
60" MMM
Kubota - Rotary Tiller B-40C
Kubota - Front Hydraulic Blade BX 2763A
Land Pride - Landscape Rake LR 1560
Land Pride - Box Blade
Land Pride - Core Aerator CA 1548
BXpanded - 3 pt sprayer
BXpanded - Bucket Hooks
Backhoe thumb
Cyclone Rake
Custom Wing Plow with Electric Lift
Custom cab with heat

61 Gravely Clean Cut 70" (sold....)
62 Gravely LI
69 Gravely Commercial 12
Too many attachments to list....
Too little time....

Have you been talking to my wife?

Every breath I take as a Free man was paid for with the blood of an American Soldier
From Concord and Valley Forge to the sands of Iraq
and mountians of afghanistan American soldiers have
paid the ultimate price For our Freedom.I am ever mindful
and for ever greatful for their sacrifice
My heros have always been American Soldiers

Re: More than I need for size of my yard

I'm just about right (finally) with the 60 and 38 inch decks for the 12 acres. In my book, overkill is so much better than underkill. That goes for size of garage (NEVER seen one that was too big) and horsepower for the car (you may not ever need it, but if you do, it's a lifesaver!).

In the past:
Craftsman, MTD, Snapper, 1961 Ford 801 Powermaster, 1992 LB 4.5HP 580546, 2003 LB 10552 6.5HP Duraforce, IH Cub Cadet 105, 2001 Cub Cadet 2146 14HP Linamar 38" deck, love of my life (Sold 10 Dec 2011), 2007 Cub Cadet 2550 22HP Kohler Vtwin 50"deck (Sold 22 Aug 2018)
In use:
1994 JD LX178 sweet little mower, only 15HP, twin cyl, 38" deck, liquid cooled!
1998 JD 445 22HP Shaft driven wheels, shaft driven 60" deck, diff-lock, hydraulic lift, power steering, fuel & temp gauges, fuel injected, and liquid cooled! This machine has it all!
2005 Nortrak NT 254 25HP Diesel 5' FEL, here's a case of cost-cutting, I only need a tractor 3 or 4 times a year

Going to try to stay Liquid Cooled the rest of my life! Hey, it gets HOT here!
