I got started in tractors prolly before i could walk. I been told i was making motor noices at 9 months old lol Had alot of toy tractors (and still do) I guess you can say I was a gear head at conception lol. My grandpa had an H and a 450 Farmall. Everytime I saw em I had to sit on em and "drive" em like every kid does. Then my grandpa bought and restored the 350 when I started school and that started it. Taking it to tractor shows. After awhile my dad started tractors so I got me farther into it. Then my 7th grade year I got my M. My freshman year I got into the Ag program at school. I did my SAE (Supervised Ag Experience) which is a record book that I kept on restoring my M. While I was restoring my M I got the Yeoman. Which turned out to be this past year's SAE along with the M and my truck. My SAE for my jr year is my 2010, Yeoman, M, truck, 350 and maybe watever else i can find. and now here I am with 2 tractors and 1 LT and 1 GT in the making which is a start of a life time collection lol.

Two years ago - I picked up a Moto-mower for my son to use in tractor pulling.
(My first moto-mower - oops)

I grew up with a David Brown 1200.

Always been a gearhead (hot rodder)....Just got into the tractors 3 years ago when I retired and bought a larger property......Its cheaper than the old cars too.

Life long gear head. Mainly was into atvs ans 4x4s. After 30+ years ov atving the ole body needed a change of pace. About 4 years ago I came up with a T65 Panzer and that got me started. Don't have the Panzer anymore but I got Cub Kong. That's the one that really got me started.

probably didn't start till around 18 for me,but have really been into it since then.No way I could even remember how many i've had thru the years.Always was fascinated with taking an old mower that has been outside for 20 years or better and getting it to run in a few hours.Always thought that was so cool....
