I picked this up at the auction I attended last weekend,the same sale that I watched the non running 345 go for $1000! Luckily the crazies weren't interested in this cart and I got it for what I feel is a decent price. Outside of some surface rust this thing is in good condition,no dents or dings in the body and the tires are not dry rotted or weather checked from sitting.I'm more familiar with the 80 carts,which I own one of,so any information you go can give me on his particular model is greatly appreciated!1006121526.jpg 1006121558.jpg

Looks decent! Probably an older model by the tailgate hooks. You can get the newer swing out tailgate parts from "Mother Deere"; hooks on the bed rails with rods on the tailgate allowing the tailgate to swing out like a dump truck gate. Swinging levers hold the bottom, same as my 15.

I also have a 10. Wanted an 80 to go with my older tractors but the price was right and it was close - in town.

Nice cart you picked up there! I would have liked a bed that size when I built my dump trailer.

Nice addition to your collection. I notice the price of a decent new cart has been rising steadily over the years. A nice used one can now save you a lot of $.

Exactly right no way could I have got this much new cart for the money I spent.I live next to my mom and she works in her yard almost constantly and she's been hinting about a cart for some time so I figured why not kill 2 birds with one stone,I got to add to my collection and she has a cart to use whenever she needs it.As long as she doesn't decide we need to paint it to match her Ingersoll everything will be fine! :bigrofl:

greenspot110,thanks for the info on the tailgate I may look into converting it over.

Good score! A bit older than my '04 by the latch/hinges. Bad thing about 10's is they won't dump clean with mildly damp material. Good thing about them is you can add bigger diameter wheels (such as wheelbarrow) and have the body go more vertical and dump completely. I always wanted to do that to my 10, instead I just continue to curse it when l have to dump stickier stuff.:D

I had an 80 cart for over 30 years, and the worst thing I did was to sell it a few years ago. Actually, the worst thing was to sell it too cleaply. I attached a picture, with my home made side boards. Hauled a lot of leaves and brush in that wagon.

Recently there was a 10 cart at an online auction (auction house just a few miles up the road) that went for almost $350 with auction fee and tax. I wanted it, but not that badly.

I picked up the operating instructions for the " 5, 7, 10, and 15 Utility Carts" (again at that online auction), and could scan it in and send it, if anybody wants it.

Nice cart, thanks for sharing. A few of you have mentioned the John Deere 80 cart. What should one pay for a 80? Or a 10? Thanks, from what I have seen quite a bit.

Not sure about the 10's but I've seen the 80's go in the $350 to $450 range pretty regularly on ebay.As for me I've got not quite $200 tied up in the pair,needless to say I have a talent for picking up bargains at the local auctions.

hdg4400 I'd be pleased to have a copy of those operating instructions! :thumbs:

All I can tell you is what I gave for my "brass tag" 80 in '08, $200:

Before; GARDEN TRACTORS 371a (Small) (2).jpg

After; GARDEN TRACTORS 383 (Small).jpg

My #10 was $70 in '09, needed little more than airing the tires:

GARDEN TRACTORS 577 (Small) (2) (Custom).jpg

I got the #10 as a "user", by running a "wanted" on the local radio station "Trading Post". About a mile from home. Just a little tip: If the tires are loose from the rims, check them before airing them up. Mice smell terrible when confined inside a tire for a year or more! :deadhorse: :wallbanging: :booboo:

Good buy, Pigsitter! Looks to be in pretty good shape. The cart I use for my leaf vac is an MTD,I think. All the hardware for the leaf vac function is removable. I had chrome tubing from some clothing display racks. Some pieces would fit inside others so I made stake pockets to fit the sides in. I still have the original tailgate but forgot to paint it green.
