1975 Sears Craftsman catalog pictures!

Scanned these pages from an old 1975 Sears catalog ( Canada ) that I have been saving. If you want to read the writing, save the pictures to your computer and enlarge them. Note the prices and quality of some items! Enjoy

All part of growing up a skinned knee, and doing stupid stuff that could have killed us, and as you said Thomas we are still here. But anyway I wish they built them like this today!..

Man- i like that ST16 twin tractor - thats back when you had the buy the deck separate - heck i paid $2000 for my brand new '92 white LT12 tractor .

$60 for a 3 point hitch? You cant touch em for under $400 today.

Well- the 'open belt' design was back when people didnt stick thier hands in it intentionally with it running - i rode my bikes w/o helmits back in the day - ride my mini bike everywhere ( with a helmit) - even tried (eventually did it) attempted to climb a giant stone pile in the local gravel pit with the mini bike - i fell down the pile more times then i remember - couldve broke more then my shift lever.

Even recently ( about 2 years ago) i ran my lawntractor up a tree while running down in the swamp behind the folks house - i landed in a few inches of mud luckily. No the deck wasnt on it - needed ground clearance.

That ST/16 Twin is sweet. My late Dad has a 12 Suburban, same design, it was built like a tank.

You wouldn't happen to have a page from the catalog with a snow plow?

Thanks for your input on my last post.

As soon as I get my scanner up and running, I'll be posting a TON of stuff like this. I have Sears lawn & garden catalogs from 1990, 1991, and 1992, as well as their yearly mower and tractor pamphlets from 1987 onward. I also have a 1988 catalog that has quite a few pages of lawn & garden stuff. Gotta love the old Craftsman machines!

-Matt

Glad to hear it...only booklets I'm missing are the 1991 tiller and the 1996 walk-behind mower issues. Also, my 1987 walk-behind mower issue is fairly ragged. If ANYONE knows where I could obtain copies of these, please let me know!

Heading to Birmingham, AL today, Lord willing. They have every Sears big book catalog EVER PUBLISHED on microfilm. Guess who plans on copying the lawn & garden pages from every catalog from 1970 onwards!
