Hi my name is "Sam" and I am the proud owner of over the years more than 9 Machines. I have owned two Yardman Lawn Tractors. One from 96 another from 98, One had a 20hp Kohler flat twin with an automatic transmission. while the other had a 20hp V2 briggs with a 12 18 speed Hi low range transmission. After that came a 2001 Craftsman LT1000 which is now in pieces in my garage. I then bought a 2003 Cub Cadet Lt1042 which was a terribly unreliable machine which I would never recommend to anybody. I then bought a Craftsmen II GT6000 with an 18hp Briggs and Stratton and 44 inch mower deck. It now has all that and more. New rear Ag tires, Manual sleeve hitch, Plow and Cultivator. After that I bought my dream machine, A 1983 John Deere 420. Its currently in need of an engine and a deck. I have a 400 deck which im going to retrofit onto it, should be fun. With the 400 deck came a 1978 John Deere 400, which is currently on block in my backyard waiting to be parted out. As you can see little mowing machines are my passion and I can't wait to learn more using MTF.
