Had to come down and open the store for a little so while I'm waiten for a guy to come get his parts had a little time to throw some more up.

Joe bob's camper and in back of him was a guy named Ed who I had never met before but was a heck of a nice guy and had some dandy horses.

Terry M's kids I got do have some good pics of your kids without the hobo in them if you want Terry!  @Terry M

Mike after dickering with a guy for a box of Kohler cranks...his technique is to keep an eye on the seller then go hit him up when he's packing up to leave. You don't really want to have to load that stuff back up... make you a offer...:lol: there was a bit of a flea market & parts there.

This gal (Kate??) is the editor of the garden tractor magazine I guess, was a beast of a case 4 steer she was driving!

@WHX7 Sheesh Jim, don't know how you could have missed us... :lol: Every time I sat down all I heard was that they wanted to go for another drive/ride! :auto-layrubber: You caught the nose of the the Scrapyard Pup in that pick of Kate on the big Case.

Great pics though, and what a fantastic show again this year. Beautiful weather and great people!!

I'll add a few of my pics to this as well. Leaving out most of my duplicates.

 

My oldest taking on spin on the suburban

27.jpg

 

My brother-in-law's 110 with rare Helix Lawn Roller and Brinly Gard-n-cart

20.jpg

 

My kids pastime many hours of the show.

24.jpg

 

My Raider 9 and wagon, getting ready to head out for a spin.

03.jpg

 

My Commando 6 with NOS Bachtold mower.

02.jpg

 

1960 Suburban 400 - 99% original.

01.jpg

 

Nice custom 4x4

22.jpg

 

My youngest taking a turn on the Suburban.

26.jpg

 

This guy tried like heck several times to get that Bantam balanced.....

21.jpg

 

The Scrapyard Pup... home built show-putter by a family friend that has passed on. We spent hours on that thing this weeked... it's such a great show vehicle.

29.jpg

 

Me and the kids on the Scrapyard Pup.

30.jpg

 

This Gemco Big Boy was in the flea market... if I'd have have brought just a little more cash it would have come home with me.

17.jpg

 

Cool custom Cub Truckster with hydraulic dump box.

15.jpg

 

Just a nice 140 with matching Deere JDX sled and trailer.

16.jpg

An ultra-rare Sweepster Transporter model on a JD Custom Color.

08.jpg

 

This is a truly unique piece and is the first year it's been to any shows ever in it's life. It may be the only one ever produced for sure. It's a Colt 2+Tools. It is an original, not a fabrication. I won't go into details because Kate and Brandon interviewed the owner. Look for the whole story in an upcoming issue of Lawn & Garden Collector Magazine!

09.jpg

 

Another shot of the 110 showing the Brinly Gard-n-Cart in the carry position

10.jpg

 

Cool Case custom

11.jpg

 

Another unique story... a mystery Wagner with Homelite decals underneath the Wagner ones.

Nice AC with loader

One of the show banners hanging above the actual tractors pictured.

This was 5 min after they dropped off the tilt-table... First attempt.... Did he make it?  Find him at a show and ask!

04.jpg

 

@stevasaurus and @joebob realxing at the toyhauler, good thing Joe brought shade... sometimes it was hard to find this weekend!

An all garden tractor show isn't complete without a kiddie train!

My 3 year old niece chauffeuring around her twin brother and cousins under the close watchful eye of her dad.

That's all I got... heading out! (notice the sweet license plate!)

Stopped out to the show early Sun. morn, was a little bummed that the place had cleared out. Did get to meet Joe Bob & Steve before they left. There were still a few tractors to look at. Will have to remember to get to the show on Sat. next year.

Sorry I missed you... Saturday morning about 10 am is absolute peak. We were there all day Friday and Saturday, packed up at 5pm. We stayed for Sunday last year, but this year I've been gone a lot of weekends, so had to get home to take care of real life on Sunday. Can you make it over to Le Sueur in a few weeks? Aug 26-28?

Will be at a large show in Edgar WI that weekend with my farm tractors.

They did seem a little sluggish. Are you going to Burnett Aug 5-7? They usually have a good amount of garden tractors there.

Was wondering why there were so many Patios there! @CasualObserver

 Did you happen to get a pic of the Tiger that was across from and just down the street from us? We happened to notice that it had a three piece 5003/5010 WH transmission and was wondering if WH sold these to other makers?

Great pictures Jim & Jason.  It was a great weekend for sure.  Jason, you always find those diamonds in the ruff.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Jim, I saw it but didn't look it over that close or get pics. I did a quick review of Tiger, and they do appear to have a similar design. I doubt it's exactly the same since they were being built before the Uni-Drive was made.
