I was just saying the other day that I don't see many old JD's here and the ones I do see are beat up or expensive. I guess this one fits into the expensive category but man does it look great. Those attachments are also sweet. Hard to tell with photos but they look museum quality. Too pretty to mess up!

I'll agree with the finish looking nice, but the price is way too high. First off, if you are going to spend the time in restoring a tractor like this, why not take the time to do your research, and buy the correct decals for it. If you look close in the picture of the side of the tractor, you'll see the engine pulley guard and pto pulley guards aren't even there. I'm assuming, since the right side of the tractor isn't shown, that the starter/generator shield is missing as well. As for the attachments, they are standard Brinly attachments, that can still be easily found. About the only thing this guy has going for him, is the paint finish, and that the tractor year is 1964. He claims that his tractor is the very first year that John Deere made the garden tractor. WRONG! He has the second year of production.

Sorry for venting, but it really annoys me when guys brag up a tractor, and want top dollar for something, that they really know little about. If you're wanting to get that kind of money, then know what you're talking about, and be a little more educated in what you have. By painting the attachments John Deere green and decaling them like he did, the unknowing buyer will think the plow and cultivator are rare, since they haven't seen a John Deere cultivator and plow before, thinks it's the first year of production, and just might be willing to spend that kind of money, just to find out later that he was mislead, and won't be able to get his money back out of it.

Thanks for the pictures Doug. After viewing them, I stand corrected. The starter/generator cover is there. My apologies!

Troy, I totally agree with you, I get so aggrevated at these guys trying to sell something that it really isn't. this guy has a very nice resto, along with a couple well painted Brinly attachments. But, he is about $3,500.00 or more over priced. So you go ahead and speak your mind.

BTW, this is almost as rare as that Bolens we read about for months!!!!

That's just 30 minutes from me.I may have to go look at that,just to look.
Then again,that's a lot of money,may I better not waist the guy's time.


I could be wrong,but I thought they first came out in 1963,not 1964.

Maynard, you are correct. John Deere's first production round fender was 1963, and "is" rare. I see so many round fenders being listed on ebay as 1963 110's, just to find out they actually have the most common '66 or '67 110. I always contact the seller to let them know exactly what year they have, and in most cases, they never post a correction, which makes me mad, as the unknowing bidders are being mislead. If you can't be honest, then you shouldn't be selling!

GMGarski,
The first garden tractor by John Deere was a 110, in 1963. In short, the round fendered 110 was made from 1963-1967. The 112 round fender's were only produced in 1966 and 1967.

It sounds to me like he had someone else do the work for him. Most likely an auto body shop. The paint job looks very professional. Way too much $$ of course, but keep in mind that they are very rare here. That fact makes people ask huge sums for these. I can not remember seeing another RF110 on Kijiji in the last 2 years.
