Nice score Mark! They look to be in real good original condition too. Other than a few missing parts, you look to be well under way for a nice collection. Congrats!

Wow!, congratulations Mark- 2 140's in one shot! I've never seen one up here ever. Not sure if any were ever sold here. They are my favourite of the early JD GT's. I like the look a lot more than the later 300 series which are pretty much identical under the tin.


Thank you! The 140's are also my favorite and was also my first garden tractor that started the fever. It was a long day of driving yesterday. About 10 hours on th road. Today, I will unload and take some good pictures.

Thank you! I don't see too many 140's around the Seattle area. They do pop-up on Craigslist from time to time, but can be priced out of range. I watch the Portland, Oregon Craigslist and sometime see some good deals. My friend Steve Johnson in Salem picked up a JD 140 H3 for resale. He had a good price and the tractor included, good condition headlight bezel, PTO, and #33 tiller disassembled. I contacted him last month and worked out a deal. A short time later, I saw that another JD 140 H3 listed in the Portland, OR Craigslist for 250 that looked to be in really nice condition, had a solid headlight bezel, included PTO, and a very nice looking #33 tiller. The #33 tiller is worth more than 250 by itself. Steve offered to pick up this tractor for me. In return, I picked up a few tractors (Jacobsen and Wards) for Steve in the Seattle area. In the end, I received some pretty good deals on tractors and implements, worked out some reciprocal pick-up trades, sold a tiller to a buyer in Portland, and made a multi-purpose delivery and pickup trip.

Thank you Troy, They do look to be in pretty decent shape. I will take some more pictures later today when I unload and wash up. Maybe I will have enough JD's to make a Christmas ReinDeere sleigh display like yours? :smilewink: Except, I don't have a Patio (red) for Rudoph. Maybe I can use my red Massey MF16 in the front?

I was going to ask how the steering wheel cleared the roof.
But I see you posted you took the front wheels off.
Smart thinking.Good idea.

Thank you! Yes, I had to take the front wheels off to clear the steering wheel. JD square fender 110's and 112's do not require the removal of front wheels.

I had a Busburban once.I went to pick up a 260 finish mower.
Seller said to me when I pulled up "Where is your trailer?That thing aint gonna fit in there."
I had already measured so I knew it would.He drove up with the forklift and it slid right in.
One of my favorite all time vehicles was that Suburban.

Here is a picture of it carrying the 430 and the one of the 260 mower in back.

Hi AJ, you are right about it being a 1974, I mistyped. I edited my post and corrected the year.

Good to know that others have done the same with a Suburban. I am amazed how much room is in the back. My Suburban is just turning 200,000 miles this month. It has been a great vehicle.
