He has about 35-40 old garden tractors some complete some in pieces.
Allis Chambers 2 tractors
Bolens- QT or HT 16,20,23, one with a cab, looks not bad.
Cub Cadet- 6 or more all more or less complete, white and yellow ones.
Ford- at least 8- LGT 125, 145, 155, all more or less complete, Poncho, got to go check this out.
Massey- 1- 1450, 2- 1650, one with cab rough. 1 has rear PTO no 3 points
JD- 112, 300, 316, 318, 400, 420, 425, +?. 318 and most of 400s in pieces, 10+ tractors. 300s came with rear pto and 3 points.
Tried to buy 1 Massey 1450 wouldn't sell without 1650 package deal.
Tried to Buy 1 JD300 again package deal 3- 300s +1- 316.
These one's for me looked like the best ones, not to familiar with the cubs or fords.
So I ended up with 4 JDs $275. a piece. To many people after the Massey,s wouldn't sell them cheap, I can't blame him for that.
Got rained on while I was there, man did it come down so no pic's or a good list of what he has.
Anyway it's time to share, search KIJIJI Toronto, home and garden for "40 scrap garden tractors, cast iron series" and you will find him.
Or if you PM me I'll give you his name, address and phone #. He's NW of Hamilton.

I guess that Doug's boss better not send Doug out on any deliveries if he doesn't know that Hamilton isn't a part of Toronto.

I just talked to this guy on the phone. He has no Colt or Case tractors. I asked him about engines that might be separate from tractors and he starts in about how he sold a guy just a flywheel off a Kohler for $100.00 and how he had to pay almost $400.00 for a starter on a Deere he was selling. Right then and there, I knew I was just wasting my time and I said good-bye.
I thought that maybe he was wanting to clear all this old junk off his property and out of his buildings but somehow he thinks that the fairys came by and gold-plated this stuff one night.

Yeah,those are the kinds of "deals" I seem to run into around here all the time.You have to wonder where they get their prices from .
Not long ago I found a Case 446,engine knocks,and the guy wanted $1400.00 dollars.Why ? Because he tells me that is what it is going to cost him to replace it.I just walked away.

I'm in the same position you are. I'm not lusting after anything at the moment. Most of my projects are complete. Any parts they do need will be items I will buy new, not used, because they are wear parts. However, I am short one K-321 engine. If he happened to have one or two around, I might have made the trek if his prices were more reasonable. If he can get $150.00 for his engines from someone else, then good for him. It just won't be me. That doesn't make him a bad guy. It just makes me a cheap guy who won't pay his asking price.

Question: Would JD300s be equivalent or comparable to Massey MF1650s?
