Sometimes a guy can pay more for a decent tiller than a decent tractor. I bought my 1054, tiller and deck for 350$. I'd say it's above average condition, tires fair and runs good.

The G8 is not to rare, 200 most for a real nice one.

I have to agree with Wilberj



As for the 1053... what exactly was done to it?
Was this an off the frame restoration? Was the engine rebuilt?

I think I'd classify the G8 as semi-rare. Sure don't see all that many of them.

I passed on a chance to get a G11 that was close to me for $150.00 just because I didn't know what it was. I was sick when I found out what it was 2 weeks later when Nascar posted about his :mecry:

I'd kinda like to find a 1257 since I think those were/are kinda rare as well.
