triad for sale

Recommended Posts


When I bought my ps sovy it had a 50 hour triad. I listed it "best offer" on CL. It was like 6 hours and it was sold for $600 with 2 back up buyers... If it runs good, someone will buy it...

My thought on the Triad is this:

If you got a really good Sovereign - except for the engine, be it a Triad or a Command, they are good candidates for a re-engine.

Some of the folks I network with who have the model 520-H Wheelhorse with Onan engines are doing this - as it is a great tractor. The Onan either is GREAT or very BAD, seems like there is no in between.

The only other old iron tractor I've seen that seems to warrant a new engine transplant is the Sovereign type tractor.

So my advice is - if you like the deal on the Triad, go for it, run it till it breaks and if the tractor is otherwise in good/great shape, re-engine down the road.

Good luck,

I agree " good luck with that". Old tired Triad. If it needs pistons, they are not available or they were not last time I checked. You can get Commands in that price range and it is an excellent motor.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
