Just a few questions. I've been doing some reading on this tractor,my neighbors father has a big ten with the Hi-low transmission ,and hydraulic lift. are these rare options, or desireable?

just got done talking to him. I can have it for $400. Runs, non original seat. going to look at it tommorrow after work. comes with a mowing deck.needs battery.He's going to get it started for me. This started because he found out through word of mouth that i was on the lookout for old mowers.

If you "like" the tractor and are prepared to put some time/money into it, and use it, then this is a probably a good deal. Today, the hydro lift unit setup and Hi-Lo unit would command the $400 price range.

To be honest... I do "like" it. But I know I will never use this tractor except to mow with. Kind of a shame really. I'll post pictures after I pick it up. Then see where i want to go with this. I was really looking for a mid 60's landlord.

Im partial to orange myself ;)

cop Mark, I like to think of my self as a victim of this club, not a perpetrator 8O)

In all seriousness, I will never discourage someone from these old tractors (maybe from a bad deal, but not form the hobby itself)...unless of course, I'm trying to bring home the very same one 666

well.... strange turn of events. I spent the afternoon working on his tractor. was able to clean the points and reset them.new fuel line cleaned out the fuel tank. new gas and a battery, fired right up. nice little tractor- original---- here's where it turns. My neighbor really had a change of heart when once we got it running. the father and son started talking about the time they had spent together while the son was growing up and one thing turned into another. he asked me if I would mind if he kept it and give it to his son..I had to say yes!!! I could not take it home with me ... so I'm home with a empty trailer again, but i feel things turned out ok... the search continues. Any one have one for sale?
