That's yard art! It's about an hour from me, it's tempting. Too bad it's missing a front wheel.

That's an RJ25 or RJ35. No older than 1954. Still probably worth the money IF the snow blade is complete and the engine will roll over. I'm not 100% sure that the cultivator is Wheel Horse or Brinly, but it's pretty rough either way.

I e-mailed them and they fixed the ad. They even doubled the price.

LOL. No good deed goes unpunished! It's definitely NOT worth twice the price in that condition!

I sure wish this wasn't so far away, you guys may think its not worth that. But those attachments are one of the hardest things to get. And those original steering wheels are never there. That steering wheel on ebay is probabably 300 bucks. That is a 55 rj35 with the original clinton motor. That kill switch makes it a 55 and that is probably about 75-100 bucks as well. missing the veri drive pulley though which is very hard to get and bring about 100 bucks or more when you can find them. Might have to send this link to a few people on redsquare. ~Jake

I told them in my e-mail it was worth more than the$200 they were first asking.
I know the parts alone are worth more than the current asking price. Maybe someone on Redsquare would be interested and there are enough members around here . I would but post it on that site but a lot of the members seem to be a clique and are rude.
That's why I love this site.

You seem proud that you got him to double the price?Just wondering what kind of fellow tractor enthusiast emails a seller and tells them their tractor is worth more than he is asking? That ruins it for anyone ever getting even a half way decent deal and it drives the prices up on everything. This is a hobby for most of us, at 400 bucks it ain't a deal anymore. Especially with the hole that is cut in the frame. For the guy that is just looking to part things out too make money 400 might not be too bad, for the guy that is looking to restore it like I was, not a deal in my opinion. I was going to email the seller when it was at 200, and within my budget. Thanks to you it no longer is.

You misunderstood me I guess. I e- mailed the seller to let them know this is a 1950's Wheel Horse and not a 1930's or 40's tractor they had posted. All I said was to stay firm at $200 because I felt it was worth that. The price change was all their decision. You can still make an offer. If there is anything to be proud of it's the fact that someone won't try to take advantage of them . My apologies to you.

At $200, I'm out, I did send an email at $100 and have not heard anything back. For $100 or less, yard art it would have been. $200, can't do it.
