Get your nominations in for November's Machine of the Month contest!​

Please post a photo of the machine to be nominated (yours or otherwise), the owner's forum handle and a link to the thread you found the photo in.​



Contest Rules:

(1)-We want active member's machinery nominated for the MoM contest, please.
(2)-Stumping for votes on the forum by anyone is not allowed. Posts and/or threads to the like will be removed on sight by staff members and could lead to a nominee's machine being removed from contention in the contest. A simple "BUMP" of the voting thread is allowed by members to generate interest in the contest, but not the nominees.
(3)-Member may only win MoM once with a particular machine. If he or she happens to be a collector of machinery the member would be eligible after one year's time with another machine.
(4)-After a recent Vote by the membership, "Staff Members are now eligible for participation in the MoM contest".

Nominations will close on October 14th. :fing32:

I normally don't nominate myself ,guess I try to stay humble. I wonder if my 345 would be worthy? I have really fell for the machine and actually kept a LX172 as they share the deck on way I set the 345 up.
Here is the first thread.

Here is the latest thread on Snowthrower set up.

If it is worthy, I would like to try.

Here is the link, http://www.mytractorforum.com/14-craftsman-sears-forum/946770-brother-hulk-ii.html
We did several modifications keeping the original look. LED headlights with the original, and an discontinued canopy.

I would like to nominate member X748SE with his highly customized x748. He added H5 hydraulics(factory is H2), hydraulic top link, hard cab+loader fabricating(the hard cab is not OEM compatible with the 45 loader), converted loader bucket to JDQA(John Deere quick attach), custom forks, custom grapple bucket, and several other custom mods. Even after all of these modifications, the machine looks factory. Roger has done an excellent job with each and every detail!!

Here is the H5 conversion thread:

Here is the grapple build thread:

I would like to nominate member lotsofspareparts and his Homelite T-10. He is a collector who bleeds green in the northwest, but took it upon himself to save a legitimate barnfind tractor. He did some research and found that it was a Simplicity built machine from the mid 70's and shared his project with the folks in that forum here.

You dont see the blue and white Homelite's often, and I think this one is growing on him as he gets it back into service! I especially like the photo with all of the Deere staring in silence ??

Here is his 'found' and 'fix' threads: http://www.mytractorforum.com/16-simplicity-allis-chalmers-forum/1198241-picked-up-free-homelite-t-10-a.html
