I ran across a website and thought you guys might find some interesting parts you might need. Then I thought I would share my links because some of you might be interested in some of them. It might be good to start a list of useful websites for parts and supplies. Please add others as you can.

If we get enough good sites, maybe the mods will even make this a 'sticky' so it can be referenced easily? Maybe someone who restores cars/trucks (DARGO?) would want to start up a similar thread in the Auto section? It might be nice to have one for boats too? Etc.

Ventrac Articulated Tractors
My favorite for mowing slopes and odd, hard to get to places! The people who invented Steiner tractors sold the company then opened up Ventrac several years later to improve on the Steiner concepts.
http://www.ventrac.com/

Steiner Tractors

Excellent quality commercial grade articulated tractors. Take a look at the "Utilimax" tractor. Way cool! I've not owned this brand, I did test it, I preferred the Ventrac (for my specific needs) but Steiner's are high quality units.

I read somewhere about a site for tractors named Tractor By Net. I visited there once but all they talked about were some wild dogs...I think they were called coyotes or some such thing!


:D

Never heard of it.


But www.compacttractorreview.com is a good site. I even got a hat from the guy who runs it. :tiphat:

CONFESSION .. I still like to watch that Anderson fellow on RFD TV when the Classic Tractor show's air ... I know someday, I will get more than tired of it ... but I still watch it now ... love those old steam boxes.

They also have a tractor show where each owner drives up to the camera on his old restored machine, talks about it, then goes through the startup procedures for it. Some of those old machines had some awfully quirky startup routines!

K, I'll shut up now.

I hate to ask but are all those quarts of oil on the shelf (enough to make the shelf bend) in the background related? :pat: :D

Them Kioti's go through a lot of oil..... you know......they use a quart or two every hour of operation. It bypasses the rings to lubricate the upper cylinder walls. :yum: :yum:

That oil is for the cars. Bought it for .$50/quart a long time ago and has since been used up. The shelf on the right wall (in back) is for the KIOTI oil. ;)

Yup, that's right Junk. That's why I only start it up once every 4-6 months and it starts and stays running with the first turn of the key! :17875::tiphat:

If you want to see antique tractors working, you should take a trip to the UK at the end of August/beginning of September to Dorset to the Great Dorset Steam Fair - ancient tractors - you ain't seen nothing till you've been there!!
