Hard to say....depends on the area I would say. In my area (NY), they aren't that common to find the garden tractors....mostly just the walkbehind tillers. The garden tractors I have seen around here usually around $400-500 theyve gone for. NOW, that being said, these ones that I have seen sold did not have the tiller attachment on the back. If it works properly and is in good condition, the tractor itself being the same.....as a package deal I could see people around here asking $700. I'm not saying it would sell fast but that seems to be what the avg is for something like that. I've seen numerous tractors around my area go for much higher prices in worse condition down south and out west and vice versa for what they have. Guess it all depends, right buyer....right price. Are you selling it or buying it?

I just got in on this one, didnt see it yesterday. The short pointy rear fenders would date it to around 1971 + or - a few years
