]I would like to share with everyone my first restoration. It started out as i just found this old machine on craigslist as i was looking for something to do over the winter 2 years ago, I never done anything like this before or had a garden tractor. I very soon got hooked on what i was doing when i fell knee deep into restoring this thing and learned so much.

I soon had an obsession and it has grown to six garden tractors, 5 of which are restored. But this tractor here is my first and my favorite. I hope you guys enjoy! Thanks for looking

This is the day i brought her home

Here I had torn down to the frame and started from the ground up

Here is the dozer blade for this tractor

And she gets finished up. I decided to make her glow red underneath.

Looks great ! I wish mine was done, I too have a 1200 as well as a 1650, both have the 2000 rpm pto. which is kinda wierd because the 1200 only came with the sleeve hitch

Very nice 1200 restoration. It's always nice to see these strong older GT's being given new life. Thanks for sharing all the photos!

Fantastic job on the 1200. I have a Snapper 1600 which is basically the same tractor with a 16hp engine. Only gave $100 for it and hopefully I'll get to restore it some day. Working it too hard right now to tear it down.
