I thought it would cool here what got you all in tractors.

I started when I was 13 or 14 by getting 2 cheep walk behinds fixing then selling them so I could pay for a rider (I mowed 7 acres with a 21" walk behind and Dad said if I wanted a rider I had to pay for it) so I started getting cheep mowers fixing them then selling them. I did get a Scott's JD L2048 and used for a bought 1 year then went with a craftsman LT1000 and Killed it so I got a 420 and a 425 AWS to mow with, but when we moved (a bought 1 mouth ago) I had to sell all my tractors so I dont have any right now.:( I have had a bought 40 lawn tractors and garden tractors in the last 5 years and around 25 of them have been JOHN DEERE:).

My father is to blame , more to thank I think and every where I have worked we had JD's.
After selling the street rod I needed a new hobby , one led to two and etc, etc just to
share some special time with Pop.
Its always been green but there have been a few others and one still remains as it was a
gift from a neighbor who has since passed on. It will never be sold as it has a very special place
in my heart and I am only the third owner as the other two were he and his brother in law.

I’ve loved tractors from the day I was born by mostly for me it came from helping my grandpa farm. He has an old 1965 John Deere 2510 with a JD model 45 loader on it. That was the first tractor I ever drove. And it became my favorite tractor. When I turned about 11 my grandpa finally started letting me drive the tractors around by myself. After that I got my great grandpas old 1951 Ford 8n. Me and my grandpa restored that tractor to take to tractor shows. And now in the past 5 years I have about 4 tractors ,3 being hand me downs and my forth one I bought from mowing lawns which was the JD 110.
But anyway now that I’m older I’m allowed to drive the bigger tractors and help around a lot more.

I've been given and collecting farm tractor toys since I was 3 years old and have a small collection compared to most collectors. My favorite piece of the collection was the 1/16" scale John Deere 110 toy. In 1989 I decided to search for the real McCoy and add it to the toy collection. Needless to say, the smaller toy collection has taken a backseat to the now larger toy collection.

With both the large and small tractor collection, plus the numerous other collections that I have, I've determined that I'm out of room!! 😒
