Great American Iron
by John D
Model year: 1968Date Purchased: 2013-11-30Number of Hours: ????
"I bought this old workhorse with a front dozer blade, 3-point hitch, and broad plow. I off-loaded it, adjusted the carb and choke, and went to work.
I'm amazed at how much sod I've turned under, broke up (with a box blade I previously bought,) and smoothed out with the blade. I'm building a runway for
my R/C Airplanes, doing landscaping, building drainage ditches, pushing, etc.
A few days after I got it home, a large tree fell across our road. I grabbed a chain, hopped on the SS12, and went down the road. While my neighbor went for his shiny new all wheel drive JD farm tractor, I pulled the tree out of the way to open the road. Granted, it took him several minutes to start the diesel and warm it up in the cold weather. Since he'd gone to the hassle to get his tractor, I let him pull the tree rest of the way to my place. I wanted to share the fun with him since he's a great neighbor!
I'm working on several attachments including a lawn roller made from a 50 gallon hot water tank. When the weather gets warmer, I'll restore the paint. I don't doubt that this all American classic will still be working hard long after I'm gone!"
