Picked this up this morning from a member of my church. He is downsizing and was going to let me borrow it. I told him that I was interested in it if he wanted to sell. He offered it to me for $75 so I took it and ran. I feel guilty... or not. :smilewink: The tongue has been repaired but I am looking for a worker and not a show piece.

Nice find! The #10 is a nice using size.

I coated the bottom & up the sides 3" of mine with spray-can bed liner. ~~ Lowell

I was thinking about the bedliner since it needs paint. Thanks for the suggestion!

That sure looks like it belongs behind your tractor. They make a real nice looking team.

I purchased the 110/deck and the wagon for a total of $525. After repairs on the 110 I have about $650 in it including all belts, wiring harness, ignition switch, battery, carb rebuild and a replacement transaxle after a rather unfortunate event last summer. I think that is more than reasonable for a reliable GT that will mow circles around the BigBox store machines. Plus I love the RF style.

Another thing to think about on the #10 is a stiffener under the tailgate lip!  I used a piece of square tubing, angle iron will work too.  I also put a strip of 1/4" plastic on top of the tailgate to keep long things from wearing it.  Put it on with automotive "molding tape". ~~ Lowell

Just put the 10 to work behind the 110 moving dirt. Two years ago we removed some gnarly old shrubs in front of our house (parsonage) with the intention of planting some new items (hostas/day lilies/etc) in their place. I worked it up with the tiller this spring and finally got some dirt to fill in the low end. I had three lightly heaping loads on the cart.

Lowell,
Thanks for the suggestion for the reinforcement along the back edge.

FWIW, this 10 as a piece of angle iron the follows the entire back edge from top to bottom. You can see it in this pic if you look close.
