I just found an RJ-25 with briggs and stratton. It has been sitting in the weeds in a abandoned looking house. the motor is free and it looks to be all there. I tried the door no one answered, so im goin back to try again soon. if not im leaving a note with my info and stuff. My question is how rare are these tractors and how valuable

They're probably the second or third rarest Wheel Horse models out there! As far as value...that depends largely on the condition and completeness of the unit. With the rarity issue, one that's in poor condition could very well be a boat anchor if you can't locate the parts you need to get it back together. Just some things to keep in mind when you finally get to talk with someone about it. Keep us posted and get some :camera: next time you visit!

Was it a model 8 Briggs? Did it have cable steering? Was there a hole cut in the hood for fuel tank? How about Wheel Horse embossed on the hood? Really would like to see some pics!
