Wat got u all into collectin tractors? Wat got me started in Farmalls was prolly my Gpa Olson when he bought the 350. Then dad wanted a tractor and he bought a 300 Utility. Then dad did electrical work for a guy who had a 400 and dad ask if he would sell it and he said no , but a week later it was in the trader lol and dad bought it. Then the B was a spur of the moment deal sittin beside the road for sail. Then the M came along at an auction. The 450 we bought at a dealer type thing in Hillsboro IL. And the H we saw a deal on it and thought heck might as well get it.

My interest in National Mowers came from when my dad had one when I was a kid.........



I ended up with 4 of them, sold one, now have 3......Also, some other makes....I will drag almost anything home.

dont know, couldnt afford cars nor did I have the room so when I moved to the country I bought a craftsman and it wasnt big enough so I painted it very nicely like the general Lee for my kid to mow on or goof around on and then bought another and so on and so on. The more people tell me I am crazy the more I like it. Wish I had pics of my general lee tractor Johnny would like it.

Actually needed a tractor . Had several "lawn tractors" before , but needed a real "work tractor" . Bought my Simplicity 3210V for $200 and haven't looked back .

Just find the old tractors to be works of art in a simple way . Now every time I see another one , I just have to have it .
