Neat little machine. Price is high unless they are extremely rare.

It really is in great survivor condition, isn't it?

Neat little machine. Price is high unless they are extremely rare.

I've never seen one in person, but it does seem a wee bit elevated.

I think that beavers are cool. I have to wonder about stability here in Appalachia hill country for as narrow as they are. But I could see in situations where you need a narrow machine... or for flatlanders... that they'd have their place.

I'm not sure that $1200 is high. That thing is not even a re-paint... and it has instant usability with the cool gang reels. He may get that if he markets it well. Like putting it on e-bay, too, and being patient for the right buyer.

Neat looking little tractor. I really think that the mower setup in the back is really cool. Does anyone know what hp it is?

What's rare is the hood. I've never seen one intact. Were they optional?

The hoods came along as the years went on. I think the first hoods came along in '55, if I remember correctly, although those earlier ones were a lot smaller than the one in that ad. The model 750 Beaver in the ad is about a '61 (or thereabouts). The hoods became bigger and more sophisticated, and I think they also had rear fenders (may have been optional) as well. I have a '53, and I'd love to find more of these little machines, but not too many come along up my way.
