Now that you brought it up, I have some of those self propelled ornaments too. I have many more pictures of the critters that frequent my yard. There are a few more species also. Some can raise a stink if you pester them

I have a new lawn ornament now.
The old Twin City went to live in another location so I moved this cute little Allis Chalmers WC on full steel into the "yard art spot". Not a bad little tractor...still loose, mag sounds off,
complete, and good steel.
Thanks for fun pictures of everyone elses items,
Tony

Bill, I like the mixer on post 22. I have a similar Jaeger, but with a Wisconsin V-4. We did 25 cu yards per day with it. My machines are on that concrete in my shed now.
First picture is inside the drum.

Well, you folks were right... the little Allis featured in post number 24 did not last long.
Got the right price and now it has a new home where it will get loved back into running condition. That is a good thing.
Time for a new lawn ornament again. Dragged a 1932 Twin City MT out front to stand guard for a while. 420 of these early MTs made before the up-grade to MTA happened. Cast fronts on this one!

Around here, there's a restored Twin City parked along the highway near Wall Lake and another one that may also be a TC (but still rusty) is parked in a yard on the road between Hartford and Wall Lake.

I know it aint all tractor but I am supposed to at some point in the future,be getting a AA Ford truck that was converted to a tractor.2 transmissions,and a Mack truck rear end shoehorned under it.Everything is so carved up and screwed up as far as restoring any of it right,I will probably make it yard art.

Hi all,.i really have enjoyed this thread as it was running previously,..and now,as an addicted iron hound who has no desire to stop..it's my pleasure to give the thread a bump.I was sad that I didn't have any pics of the old Fordson on steel that lived in this spot previously,but I was not going to get caught out a second time.Pic#1 shows my new Towmotor lift truck that arrived at 10.30am,..helping my McCormick Deering W30 that arrived 1.30pm,..i call that pic "courage to change the things I can"....I pulled the wrong lever a few times and eventually bogged the fork when I got it out of sight.The old girl has had some dignity restored with her back wheels in place again after many decades of absence.A lot of hard work goes into this free real estate value enhancement that my neighbours are getting.
Paul.

Lurch the 2096 Case High Crop. Kinda on steel. On the left rear tire, what looks to be mud spots is where large amount of steel cords are showing. Heaven forbid I disgrace Lugs and Cleats with full rubber and a push button besides. Lurch is a cheater, a user, and a scoundrel . He is not taken captivity well, since he was captured in the hibernation mood, from the Everglades in Fl State last year. He has no manners as of yet, none at all.

Here is our Fordson yard art. I brought this one home years ago. It was sitting beside the hiway at Valleyview Alberta. Paid 25 bucks for it.

I had this Twin City out front for about a year or so and a speeding motorist tossed out the anchor, flashed his wallet and presto...no more yard art.
Time to drag another one up front to take the missing TCs place. Included in the pics are some implements that make effective stump covers.
Do any of the iron hounds have pictures of rusty art to share?
Tony
Tony, I drive by your place several times a year and its always fun to see what you have sitting around! The foot comes off the gas pedal and sometimes the brakes come on. Sometime if I see you outside and I have time I'll swing in.

Tom,
Better yet, call ahead on a slow day and we can tour my junk pile, have a look in the neighbors shed, go through the museum and have lunch together...I am here a good bit during the week and you are always welcome.
