well i'll take a stab at it. This is my 400 suburban. I bought it cheap from my local dealer, it was out behind his shop covered completely in vines. I pulled the vines back and knew I had to have it. It looked like crap. some would have left it there to rot. Took dad and I 4 years or parts gathering, E-tanking, sand blasting, priming and painting to make it look the way it does now. I do have a plow blade, sickle and a mower deck that need work for it they should be done this summer!! thanks for looking.

I'm posting this one for my son Ryan, this is his 1974 B-100 auto, we fixed this up for him a few years ago, it has a 8hp instead of the orig. 10hp that was blown up, but he is bugging me to put a 10hp back in it, this started as a $25 beater, this was not a full resto, but was 95% torn apart blasted and painted, he drives the snot out of it in the summer at all the local tractor shows, and does very well with it in the tractor games.

What we started with

And what it ended up as

Winning his first trophy, he has won a few since then, he polishes and cleans it for every show in hopes of winning again.

This was one of the many versions of my "RAT" Gasser and the incarnation I should have left alone IMO... this version went to the 2011 Wheel Horse Show and played its part well. Made up of a 60 Suburban front end, Early RJ58 tranny, high Rat Rod shifter, White header dump, Blue Clone Power and the evil "666" on the hood...

Please include at least one clear image, a short description and history, and any other information or stories you'd like to share.

Some of y'all took that to heart, didn't you? :ychain:

For consideration is an original unrestored 1989 312-8 that I purchased new in June of 89 along with a 42" S D Deck, Chrome Wheel Covers and a Vinyl Tractor Cover made by original Cab company.

This Tractor was mainly used for mowing and also snowplowing for a few years, currently used with a front mounted Dethatching Tine Rake as evident by the Transport or Lever Bracket above the left front axle.

The only parts that have been replaced other than maintenance items are The Seat, 2 Front Tires, Clutch/Brake Interlock Switch and upgraded Footrest Pads to the Deluxe Pads.

This Tractor has had a very good life in the Garage when not in use and has served me very well, currently with 514 Hours.

It is hard to believe I have owned this for almost 24 Years and is also responsible for starting my wheelhorse addiction and shares Garage Space with a 1984 C-165, 1986 417-8 and a 1991 520-H and by the way the 520H got quite a workout here in Maine Today.

Thank You for your Consideration!

There are so many real nice tractors that it is difficult to choose! I like the fact that many are workers, especially in the snow!
