  • Condition at Time of Purchase I purchased the tractor at auction complete with 60 inch belly mower and 3 pt rotary tiller. The tractor looked very good, must have been stored inside, but was not serviced regularly, engine oil was like tar, hydro oil was cloudy,the charging system did not work. I needed a small tractor to get into small residential yards I could mount a loader on for my tree trimming/removal business. Since my chainsaws are Stihl and I grew up on a WD (and two noisey green things),in my heart AC orange was my only option.
  • Condition Now I have replaced the 20 amp stator and epoxyed the magnets back into the flywheel,changed the hydro oil and filter,changed the engine oil "a few times" in an attempt to flush out the sludge and tar that the original owner was kind enough to leave in there. I also mounted a LEON Mfg. model 400 front end loader on the tractor and built a tine and grapple attachment. A 350 pound weight now hangs on the 3pt for traction as I often overload the forks to the point of raising the rear wheels off the ground. The paint is original and in pretty good condition, compression is 115/120 but uses about one quart of oil in eight hours of custom garden tilling. I do not plan to "restore" this tractor because I prefer the "original look" and I bought it for the "workhorse" that it is!!
