That's a cool tractor! But I suspect it didn't come factory equipped with a Vanguard engine either.:mocking:This is what I used for 10 years on our property,a Speedex 1631 somewhere in the neighborhood of a 1978 model. It was a real workhorse,although primitive it did the job. Parts were just getting too hard to find,and when I had to resort to reworking mower blades for a Cub Cadet deck that was the last straw. Sold it and got my 316.
Agree. Nice picture of the Cub. I found / bought a one owner 53 Cub that falls under that same guideline. I had forgotten where it was in the owner's manual though, thanks for remembering for me.:laugh:The only other non-JD tractor is a Farmall Cub - and I don't count it, Article 3, Section 4, Clause 7 of the John Deere owners hand book guide states that if the tractor is over 50 years old, it doesn't count as a antique and doesn't count against every other tractor being a JD. I promise I didn't make that up:laugh:
I have downsized quite a bit. I only have one off-topic tractor, a Cub Cadet 2135 that needs a transmission and it will go to my son-in-law if and when I get it fixed. Right now I only have a '70 140H1, a '74 110, a '89 316H2, a '96 445 and a '06 X320. I just don't have the time to messed with them like I would like to, so I down sized a lot.Man! What do you do with all those GT's?:unknown: You have had quite the collection of:kidw_truck_smiley:. One good thing is you use a GREEN trailer to haul them on...:laugh::hi:
Thanks. It was actually my grandfathers who bought it new and has been handed down in the family for the last 60 years and bought new. I'll have to find the sales receipt from back in the day, I know I have it somewhere. I don't remember the exact figure as it's been about 6 years since I've seen it last, but it sure makes me crap in my pants every time I see it because of how much we pay for machines now.Agree. Nice picture of the Cub. I found / bought a one owner 53 Cub that falls under that same guideline. I had forgotten where it was in the owner's manual though, thanks for remembering for me.:laugh:
Shucks,you noticed! The tractor was left with the house when we bought it, and me not knowing anything about these tractors,I thought it was a factory engine for about 5 years.That's a cool tractor! But I suspect it didn't come factory equipped with a Vanguard engine either.:mocking:
Those things are tough.These are some sick tractors i especially like that ariens:thumbup1gif:
