I have a 68 Sears XL10 sitting in the shed. Starter/generator, cast aluminum shaft-drive mower deck. If I pull the carb and clean it, she'll start right up. I'm looking for a plow for it.

The next time you have to replace the battery buy an 8 volt battery. The 6 volt generator will charge the 8 volt fine and it will crank like you had a 12 volt jump all the time. I have done this for years with no ill effect on my equipment

This is my back saver. It's a 1980 kubota L275 27.5 hp diesel. This thing runs as good as the day my father bought new. I bought it from him 12 years ago. My wife would have to do alot more work around here if I didnt have it. :roll:

HEH!! It'll LOOK like it's running on coal, that's for sure!! :P :P

I remember going to tractor pulls when I was a kid (1980 or so) and watching the Super Farm class and at night, you could see about a foot or two of flame coming out of the top of the chrome stack buried within the black smoke coming out of those John Deeres.

I've always been fascinated by the vast amount of horsepower that a diesel engine can produce by little more than adding fuel and vast amounts of boost. I do believe (at least I remember vaguely) that some of them run water injection? I also believe that they run pretty low compression ratios, not much higher than a high peformance gasoline engine?

Those old Sears tractors were TANKS! I used to mow some yards way back around '80 and used a 12hp Sears tractor of about the same vintage, maybe a few years newer. Had a two-range transmission, Tecumseh engine, but I don't remember if it had a shaft drive deck, I think it was a steel belt drive setup.

I have a '05 Cub Cadet 2544 to mow our "vast" 1 acre yard. I'm not a fan of MTD products, who owns Cub Cadet, but it's a pretty nice machine for the money, considering an equivalent JD would be at least $1000 to $2000 more. Mine was the last year of the full steel hood and side panels. It has a few "cheap-isms" like really chintzy headlights that fall apart and fill up with dirt, press-in zerk fittings that don't stay in, and the lamest oil drain setup on the planet (which is easily modified). But, it has a beefy cast iron transaxle with spin-on filter, shaft drive to the hydro, and a stout deck with grease zerks for all moving parts. And last but not least - Kohler Command 20 hp engine - which is amazingly frugal on fuel and will run all season (50 hours or so) and never use a drop of oil. Compared to the old Briggs and Kohler iron engines I grew up with, it uses half the fuel but I do miss that "smell" of unburnt hydrocarbons mixed with the grass smell.

I figured you already had one!

Years ago, my brother and his friend collected Fordson tractors. I think they had 7 for a while. I thought he was nuts, but they made a bunch of bucks on them.
