    I remember a while back seeing a pic of TLS's old fleet of garden tractors back in the day before ZTR's. Anyone else got old pics like this? Would be interesting to see... :D

    Cub Cadet is a 1968 Model 125 Hydrostatic drive 12hp "One Holer Kohler" and a 48" deck. Had a snowblower and plow for it.

    Deere's are both 318's They have 18hp Onan's Hydrostatic drive, power steering, turning brakes and both 50" decks. Sold one to buy my F-935 and kept the other one for my Father. We now have a snow blower and plow for it.

    Weed wacker is an original GREEN MACHINE and thats my old LawnBoy Commercial Push. Also pictured is one of my favorite blowers. Its a mid 80's Homelite/Agway blower. Forget specs and all but it blew better than any hand blower I ever had!
