    I love garden tractors. Not the new stuff but the old ones. I lost most of them in the divorce but do still have one. I love it as much as my son does.

    I started kentuckytractorclub.com a few years ago. We have plow days where we use these little tractors to plow. We did 8 acres here on the farm back in march.

    That is so awesome! What horsepower is your lawn tractor - and can I make my riding lawnmower do that? [​IMG]

    Now you have me wanting tractor type tires for my old murray rider. Those old lawn tractors were great! I had no idea there were people so interested in them. Cool stuff!

    Nice, another old Allis Chalmer fan.

    I have a 1965 Allis Chalmers Big-Ten with factory rear duals, and a 1964 B-10 with a hydraulic front end loader.

    What attachments do you all have for yours?

    Just a plow. Ive mess with a little more land than the allis can handle. 12 hours of mowing on the 410 will wear you out.
