On the 300 and 400 series look very carefully at the frame right above where foot plate support rod goes through the frame on eac side of the tractor. Stress cracks develop there and eventually the tractor will break in half if not caught. I have seen this twice now and experienced it once. SmilinSam

Another thing to consider is that if its the Toro Power Plus two cylinder its a Onan made engine which translates to expensive repairs if ever needed. The tractor itself sold new for (I THINK) a little less than $4000 new. Resale on that, and being and 8 speed rather than the hydro, I would think about $1000 for the tractor alone would be a plenty. Auction price would be more like $600- $800. As always there are many variables to consider. The loader is the wild card. Don't know what the loader is worth, but garden tractors with loaders around here usually fetch around $2000 or more at auction. You know what its worth to you, use your judgement and go from there.

      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!😁
