No posts in this forum section yet so I'll start something.

I use a compact utility tractor for most of my chores. JD 770.

Don't think I could live without the loader as it's my go-to tool for heavy lifting or moving.

I run a blade off the back for most of my snow removal (coupled with the loader) and use the box blade for grading and moving dirt. I have a plow, sub-soiler, pallet carrier and some other implements but these don't get used much.

In this pic, I'm running the rototiller to cut in a new driveway and garden.

No pics, but my most used is a Kubota BX1860. Wish I had got a loader for it. I also have a 70 model Duetz 3006. My stepdads old tractor. I used it hard every year growing up. Now is runs a bush hog and works the garden with plow and disc.

You beat me to it. I've been trying to dig up the pictures of mine.

This is my 1939 2N. When I trailered it home it looked like this:

I spent a couple months prettying it up and now it looks like this:

It's been 3 years and I still haven't painted those wheels. The ones that are painted are new. The old ones were rotted away to nothing.

I bought a Yanmar last summer.
3 cyl. diesel 4 wheel drive and PTO
It has a front end loader and a 4' tiller.
Everyone thinks I'm nuts for buying a tractor.
We only have 2 acres but it has came in very handy and saves me some work.
Tilling the garden next year will be much easier and if it snows this winter I'm all set.
If I find I don't use it I can always sell it for what I have in it.
Every time I use it the theme song from Green Acres runs through my head.:)

My Mahindra 2555. I'll admit I had a problem with the front end when I first bought it. Defective wheel bearings in the whole front
Mahindra took care of it all under warranty thank goodness. Excellent motor and no issues since
I've been building a road and worked it quite hard and it's held up nice since the first issue. Very strong 4 wheel drive.FB_IMG_1512830902898.jpg FB_IMG_1512830919072.jpg

That's a lot of old tractors.

I went to a steam engine show a few years ago. I'll have to dig up the pics when I have more time.
Finally get around to digging these out but so far I only have 3. I'll have to do more digging to find the rest of them.

A steam engine show held every year near Mechanicsburg, Pa.

This is the engine that pulls 3 passenger cars around the park.

Here is a steam engine set up to run a mill. Front and back.
