Hello fellow tractor owners :)

My name is Djurre and i am from The Netherlands.
I own a house with about 5000 square meters of garden, mostly grass.
For Dutch principles this is a very big garden, because an average garden is about 100 square meters in my country.
Anyway, i like to buy an old mini tractor to pull my trailer to dump old leaves and stuff from my garden.
I found two tractors that i like allot.

The Jacobsen Super Chief Hydro 1450 and the Wheel Horse 800 3 speed manual.
At the end i bought the Wheel Horse because i like the manual grear and because of the condition it is in (loads of things replaced, new paint, stickers, double wheel etc)
The wheel Horse was slightly cheaper than the Super Chief.

I actually love both tranctors very much.
Maybe i like the Super Chief even a bit more because of its industrial looks :)

What do you guys think?

Thanks!

One thing about the owner of the Super Chief has me wondered.
He said the Super Chief Hydro 1450 weighs 450 kg, or 992 lbs... is this true??

Nice tractors both of them...that is a hard choice...I think the Jacobsen might weigh about 485 pounds...the Wheel Horse without the extra tires I think is a little more, but they both look like they were well taken care of...the WH had 2 different engine configurations during its production, which do you have?....welcome and hope you find any information you need to keep it so nice looking

That is correct!

I am living in Friesland, a province in the Netherlands where we have enough living space left LOL.
Two years ago we bought our house there after living whole my life in towns and cities.
I never regret the move to the country, i love nature and the lack of too many people :)
I made a extension to the garage so i could put my other hobbies: old Jaguars/Daimlers and our old camper inside along with the Wheelhorse.















I made some LED lighting on the bumper from the Wheelhorse so that i have loads of light when doing gardening on the evening.





Anyway i'll hope you guys like the photo's i shared.

I'll hope to see nice lawn tractor photo's of other owners on this forum.

Whew, serious man cave right there. I like your style. Your place is nothing short of beautiful, my compliments. My wife's family is from Holland. We plan on visiting in the near future.

Djurre, welcome to MTF! That is a very nice piece of property and fantastic collection of cars and equipment. Got to visit Holland in 1986 for a week with some of our German friends it is a very beautiful country with a lot of history.
