Sears Suburban SS12 plowing
1968 with full hydraulics plowing the fall garden. I probably could use
one more wheel weight on the outside...or get a little fatter : ) Let me
know if you want any videos explaining anything.
Sears Suburban Moldboard Plowing with the Sears SS 12 Suburban Tractor
While filming the Sears Suburban Backyard Tractor Clubs tractors for an
upcoming MAJOR video of ALL the members tractors, we visit the Manic
Mechanic (MM) at the Mopar Ranch. He hooks up his Sears Moldboard Plow to
his 1969 Sears SS12, takes it for a burn and plows 2009 Miss Suburbans
vegetable garden. The ground was probably a little to damp to be doing this
but the SS tears it up anyway. He's out of control.
Romping tractors in deep mud/swamp/creek!
There is cursing in this video. Taking these 60's garden tractors back
through the woods, and the through the crazyiest stuff we can find.
through all the mud, swamps, and the deep ass creek. mikes bolens 1000 was
running off a magneto, and i didn't know if it was reliable enough to be
going through 2 and a half feet of water with. When i first put that
Wisconsin Tr-10D engine on it, i hooked up the magneto, and it ran
horribly. so i threw a coil on it, and it ran perfect. and i just stuck
with that all last year. then i took the Startergenerator off of it, and
made it pull start. not having a battery anymore, i took the 12V coil off
of it, and returned the beast to the magneto. and it seems to run fine...
but i really thought it wouldn't take that water well at all. It was a
Crazy thing, the other tractor, the 1050, with the 850 engine has a 12V
coil, and that actually died in the middle of the creek! for a few
seconds. i shook the coil wire off, and it started right back up. :)
good thing too, because that water was cold, and i don't know how we were
gonna get those 550 pound tractors out of the creek... haha
oh yeah, and early on the rubber flex plate/u-joint type thing on mikes
1220 exploded when we were going around the circle. and thats a first!
never had that problem before. i should probably go and fix that today.
Some rusty old tractors we got for free
A lot of this is junk, but there is at least one diamond in the rough here.
It was a sight unseen must-take-all kind of deal, so we went with
Sterling's diesel Dodge truck and a borrowed trailer and pulled these
relics out of a poison ivy filled muddy yard and brought them to tractor
land. Oh yeah, and Dave got a bed liner for his Chevy for free too.
Sears Suburban (1968) Restoration
This is my 1968 Sears Suburban restoration project. It has a 12hp Tecumseh
HH120. These old tractors are real workhorses. They simply don't make
them like this anymore. A wide range of implements are available for them,
such as: plow, disc harrow, tillers, sickle bar mowers, front and rear
blades, and much more.
Sears 12 Suburban

Garden Tractor Crawling
1966 Sears Suburban 12. This is the first time it has moved under its own
power since I got it. Just got it running yesterday, after being locked up
with rust in the cylinder for who knows how long. The oil fill tube is
broken and duct taped, and oil is blowing out of it and onto the Exhaust, hence the smoke. I still have a few
little things to fix on it.
