  1. 2017 Big Show Buy/Sell/Trade Thread HERE !!

    I'm also bringing this sickle bar mower. It's been modified by the previous owner and was told by his son that he used it on an 855 I believe he said. I've degreased it and used WD40 on it so far.

    I'm bringing my dad's old 502, I just don't think I have the time to work with it. I have to choose my projects. The deck looks in really good shape. He used it with a blade. It will run, it just needs some work. Also an extra deck suspension and gears.
  3. 1983 - Work Horse GT-1142 Restoration

    This restoration of my dad's 1983 - Work Horse GT-1142 started out just fixing the carburetor and missing linkage. Sadly, my father passed away, while I was waiting on some parts to arrive. It soon became a full on restoration and what I call "Tractor Therapy". The restoration was pretty much completed by the end of July 1, 2016, but I then found a 42" side discharge deck and began the restoration of the deck. All parts are new except the actual shafts. As with the tractor sheet metal, I had the deck bead blasted and painted at a local body shop. The decals for the restoration came from redoyourhorse.com I've also found a few old pics to include an old trailer we had. I found that trailer in the weeds all rotted up with only the angle iron steel frame, all plywood gone. As of May 2017 It's now painted black again and will be put back to work after 30 years of rotting in the woods in Northern PA, it's going to get a lot more use.

  9. 1984 - Work Horse GT-1100 - Working

    This album shows my GT-1100's working using the 48" blade, 36" tiller and 42" rear discharge deck. This is at our cabin in Loganton, PA which border PA state forest land. The ground has always been rough and lots of stumps and rocks. I'm working to tame that out and plant wild flowers and Wild game food plots around the area.
  10. 36" Rototiller and 48" blade

    A few photos of my two worker Work Horse tractors in use at the same time. Normally one is at this property (our cabin) and the other at home. They are both working together here to clear the border with the State Forest to plant some wildflower seeds. My first using the tiller. I must say it makes makes the work a lot easier. Both tractors are GT1100, the one with the tiller blew the engine last year so it has an 18HP Briggs installed making it a a unique, GT1800. 8 Speed. Note they were only made as automatics. It also has brad new shoes. 23'x10.5"x12" Ags that work great.

    We are in the same boat. I drove this thing from the time I was 14. I restored it after my dad passed away last May. I know there are some in my area on Craigslist. I have 2 other GT-1100's and a GT-1600. The one GT-100 is my daily worker, the other had the engine blow last year and I replaced it with a used 18HP. There are some listed on Craigslist around here. Are you coming to the show in Arendstville in June?
