Just a little contest for the oldest tractor, I know that I do not as the I finally took my 24 year old Murray 14/42 garden tractor to the junkyard today after the engine expired on it last week. I do not really need it anymore with the Kubota L-185 and the new JD L-120 I bought last year. I just want to see some pictures of the oldest you guys and gals got.

Needs a little work but not realy much. Burns almost no oil, but compression is getting a bit weak. Pretty much a cleanup, and a freshend top end, and she would be great.

Yep, Ingersoll looks like he's got everyone beat good. Come on guys, can anyone beat him? BTW I knew it was a Ford in the edge of the picture because I have seen pictures before and it doesn't look like my 73 Duster 340 that i have since it was new.

Kevin Bietz, probably has something older, like a Bolens or something.

followed by 1975 John Deere 300, 1984 Bolens HT-23
and last but not least my 2003 Craftsman GT5000.

I started collecting them in 1990 and one seams to attract another, and so on. I have 4 revieved and running 4 more projects and about 15 small engines, 2 outboards & 1 - 3"pump, if ever get the honey do list shrunk and I live long enough to get everything fixed up the way I want I'll have to buy a bigger place just to store it all and all they do is take up space and go to shows

It ain't super old, but 28 years is a good long time. She has a fresh engine and a newer deck shell. I see another 10-15 years easy.
