All 3 of my "mowers" are used to maintain my place. But the Ford N gets a little more attention than the Cub and Craftsman..:fing32:
Appearances are deceiving. The long term plan is:MF GC2310 - In service
MF1655 w/ FEL - Down for minor repairs and new wheels
MF1655 - Down for minor repairs
MF12H - Down for minor repairs (Battery)
MF8H - Down for major repairs (Basket case)
MF7H - Down for minor repairs (Carb)
Husqvarna YTH20B42T - In service
That seems like a pretty nice Barbie collection to me!:hide:
HH, get with the 21st Century. I am sure that a number of our MTF members have collected Barbies at some point in their life, gender not withstanding!Interesting comparison there, a doll for a little girls and a working tractor for full grown (physically) men!
Tudor, please know that I meant no disrespect. In fact, quite the contrary, I was admiring your extensive collection. :thThumbsU My only premise that might be a point of contention (with everyone) is that once you get to more tractors than you can count on one hand, maybe they're more for sport than necessity, even if they all perform tough jobs. I would opine that aspiring to have two (or three!) FELs in the shed might put you in that category. Further, the very last line of your signature says they may be a lit bit of fun.Appearances are deceiving. The long term plan is:
MF GC2310 TLB - plus backblade.
MF 1655 w/FEL - plus backblade, various FEL attachments, 4850 tiller, log splitter.
MF1655 - 54" mmm, 48" blower, share the tiller.
MF12H - currently with mmm, snowblower, front blade and spring tine cultivator, but in the future another FEL and hydraulic Cat '0' 3PH and 48" backblade.
MF8H - mmm, and a candidate for a possible diesel conversion and maybe a small FEL and 36" backblade on a Cat '00' hydraulic 3PH.
MF7H - mmm and snowblower.
The hope is to make the fleet earn their keep in specialized fashion. The only candidate for Barbie status is, maybe , the MF7H if I can get the mechanical side 100%. Once the 7H is done, the Husqvarna is gone.
The only major pieces that I don't have now are the 2 smaller backblades and a diesel for the 8H. A 3rd 5' backbade would be nice for the other 1655, but it's not essential. The hydraulic 3PH for the 12H has been hanging on the wall in the garage since I sold my first 12H in '84.
All working tractors (once I get them running to my satisfaction), no Barbies.
:sidelaugh Ok, that's funny. But what about Ken's tractor?Just remember that Divorced Barbie comes with Kens house, Kens car, Kens tools, and Kens sanity. That's why tractors are tools and not Barbies.
Yeah, I thought about GI Joe (mine was before the Kung Fu grip), but he wasn't nearly as popular as Barbie, and this thread wouldn't have been nearly as much fun (for me).Maybe you should have used the term action-figures, ggsteve.
We changed our G.I. Joe's uniform, we did not "dress him up".
