That looks like a good tractor! Does not look like a bad price for that tractor either! Did it come with a mower deck? I see it has the mule drive on the front. Will this one be branded as a JD also?

I had to pay big bucks for this one , it cost one hundred and fifty bucks because of the brand new battery. grrrrr
It came with a deck but it looked rough and I didn't even want it . He said it needed bearings..
The next one in line is the Bolens so we'll see if I can get it for a hundred or if I have to dig deep again and spend $150.00 ??

I started a four wheel wagon project yesterday to hook to one of my 8 tractors to pull my grandson in until he gets a little older. Here is a picture of the hundreds of pieces I have already cut out for my next model . It's a 1/12th scale Komatsu pc-8000-6 mass mining excavator . When I get a little farther on the wagon I'll post a picture or if i buy another tractor first I'll post a picture.

Great deal on the Wheel Horse! It is a nice looking one! It is a 310-8, right? Kinda hard to see the decal. I have a 312-8 and it is an awesome tractor! Good luck with it!

Yes it is a 310-8 , neat little tractor !
Here is a picture of my progress on the 4 wheel wagon I started making for my grandson last night . What good is a tricked out tractor without a snazzy wagon to pull behind it , ha,ha.

Don the wagon has some seriously nice wheels/tires on it. Looks like it will be nice and stable.

I love big tires on wagons too , ha,ha. I may build a two wheeled wagon next and put 26-12-12 turf tires on it for wheels that I had left over from the jd 430 tractor.

Thanks ,
This is our first grandchild so we want him to have fun when he comes to grandpas house.
Yes the wagon tires are pretty cool, the rear ones are left over from the front of the jd 430 and the front ones are from a jd 332 I used to have. I bought the tires for the front yesterday . The rims all had bearings so I just had to use them on something.
The four wagon tires are 18x8.50x8 so they are good sized tires .
