'Dear Lord, thank you and forgive me, I believe I found my new best friends.'

Hello, my name is ratboy...and I'm a 'tractor-aholic'. Man, have I been lookin for people with the same taste in good equipment. I hope to bug the 'bleep' out of you guys with questions, quests and worthless trivia.

Here is a very edited list of my collection:

1) G-8, 1) 850, 1) 853, 3?) 1050's, 1) 1220, 1) 1225, 1) 1253, 1) 1254, 2) 1256's, 2) G-14's, 1) 1250, 2) 1476's, 1) 2104 iseki, 5) tillers (maybe 6), 3) snowcasters, 5) blades, 1) chipper/mulcher, 1) york rake, 1) grader blade, 1) potato hoe?/cultivator?..... the list goes on. multiple parts tractors whose identity has long been forgotten.

My wife is understanding but growing weary. If she doesn't kill me soon, I will be looking forward to picking your brains for information. WilberJ, you just might grow to hate me.

Welcome. Tell your wife you are preserving history. I think I should have a serious talk with the guy that gave me my first one. Now I got 8 or 9.

WilberJ, no, not 18, 18 identifiable. 7 or 8 more that are parts donors. Mostly tubers. Oh, minus 1. Sold my cousin a 1256 with deck, wheel weights and chains. picked up an old wheelhorse as partial trade-in. If anyone has a wheelhorse itch, I may be able to help scratch it. Cheap!

Oh yeah, forgot to mention 2 habans! Handy as thumbs, cuts down on weed eating.

Is there a classifieds on this forum? I am looking to unload a couple of tube frames and some attachments. Found a real nice ht23 in my price range.

(I'm almost embarrassed to say that publicly, I got it bad)

Yes there is. It is a little farther down the page under "Non Tractor Related Forums".
Here is a link to get you started:
