Hi Guys im not a big green machine fan but i came across one while looking for wheel horse parts, this tractor was stuck in the forgotten corner of a barn under a pile of feed bags when i spotted the front wheel sticking out. the owner was going to fix it up and paint it 10 or so years ago, got as far as some disassembly and sand blasting, then gave up, its a john deere 140 h3 with 3 ph, the motor turn over and the owner said it ran fine when put away, the hood is correct year but off a112 the original was nfg, the boxes in the pic have all the bits and pieces for this tractor only missing the seat and a couple of hydolic lines, we pulled the cultivator out of his scrap pile and i bought the lug tires from him for this tractor, not bad for $225 for it all, but i would have paid more if it was a wheel horse ha ha ha !!!! farmer john

Great deal, The 3pt is worth 2 times as much as you gave for the 140. What is the serial number, year?

Way to go !! :thumbs:

Very good find. As others have mentioned, the major differences between the early and late 140 is the transaxle change and the move to the 14HP k321 in 1969. I am a bit curious of the serial number too.

That will make a really versatile GT with the 3 hyd. circuits and the 3pt. hitch. Are you going to fix it up, restore it or just sell?

hi guys the type is T0586 serial # 060264M i think that makes it a 1974, do you think the 3ph is factory or an add on aftermarket? my intention is to fix it / restore to good looking/working condition, tractors belong in the dirt , that said i never wax my truck but i wax my tractors. as we all know everything is for sale on the farm, i swore i would never sell my case 485 orchard model untill some city boy came by and gave me $4000 more than i paid for it 5 years eariler, could not justify keeping it, oh well $$$$ talks and theres always that other tractor waiting to be found, love the hunt!!!!! thanks for looking farmer john
