  1. If you like acoustic.... how about Michael Hedges? I got to see him back in the 80’s as he was becoming more known. Awesome talent.... died too young in 1997 in a car wreck. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YaIN13aDbCc

    Speedex 1631

    Yes, T-92 transmission. I don’t have a 520H to compare it to, but if I compare it to my other 3 GT’s, if I added chains to the rear tires, I would think it would out-pull the others. Plenty of places to add weight, too.

    Work Horse 700 transmission

    My wife has a cousin that is on his 2nd marriage, as I am. He also stumbled upon a great woman that will put up with him (He’s a handful!!) . He tells her, “If you ever leave me, I’m going WITH you!!”

    Speedex 1631

    Meant to also say..... the transmission input is driven by a belt from the engine. Tension is put on that belt using the right-side foot pedal.... you pivot it toward the front of the tractor which slides the engine forward on the bar-stock frame, which compresses a return spring that pushes the engine back towards you when you pivot the pedal back. The output of the transmission drives a heavy roller chain to the rear tires. Like I said..... simple!

    Speedex 1631

    I have a Speedex 1631 and I LOVE IT for it’s rugged nature and simplicity. Mine has a belly mower, plough, disks, furrowers, and cultivators. I don’t use the mower but It does work. It is my favorite GT for ploughing because it sits high on the ag tires, giving you the ability of ploughing a really deep furrow without high-centering. The only “weekness” it has, if you can call it that, is the “Armstrong” lift lever. If that’s a show-stopper, keep your eyes open for a 1632.... the 1632 is a 1631 with hydraulics. Any more specifics about the one you are looking at?

    Plowing snow on a GT 14

    I knew that alert area looked familiar...... I have a cousin that lives outside of Independence, VA. I’ll text her husband today and see how they are doing.

    What year is this?

    I’m slow, but I think I see a pattern to those numbers..... 1997 stuff has “7900001” 1996 stuff has “6900001” 1995 stuff has “5900001” 1994 stuff has “4900001” 1993 stuff has “3900001”..... etc

    I think it is amazing that you got it from the original owner! Nice tractor to have!

    Decmember 7th, lest we forget.

    I got to go to Hawaii during the summer after my 8th grade year in 1976. I still vividly remember the visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. Even at that “young and dumb” age, I was moved to tears by all of the names on the wall, by the enormity of that ship, the knowledge that so many were still down in that ship, and the sight of the ship still “bleeding” oil. I will never forget the sacrifices made by so many for this country!

    Homemade cultivator

    I have a hand tool for shaving off weeds like that.... it has a hoop of steel, sharpened somewhat, that is attached to a handle like a hoe head. Works really good, but I saw a tool once that a guy attached to a tool bar like yours that was like a big draw knife that he would pull along, just under the surface of the dirt. Made short work of weeding between rows.

    That’ll sure work! Good job! Will it actually get used in the garden?
