Review and comment if you think this is a good deal or not? Is that a model 80 cart?

Not much at all to review, but if it is all there & no mechanical issues other than a good carb cleaning & tuneup needed, then it's a fair enough deal I'd say. Those carts are kind of hard to find aren't they?

110's are rare up here so it would be snapped up real fast at 500$.

It don't look too bad to me.

The things that help in the price is:

It has the Kohler engine (easier to fix and easier to get parts for).

It has the optional hydraulic lift unit. I've seen just those for $100 - $250 alone.

The JD 80 trailer looks like it is in good shape. The last one I heard sell for was $100. I was in fair condition also.

Good luck on the purchase.

Thats a very fair deal! The hydraulic lift is worth a few hundred bucks and one of those 80 carts with the skinny tires which that does not have went for 800 bucks at auction a few weeks ago. I would think that cart is worth 250-300 along. I would go and get it. ~Jake

If it starts, runs and drives then yes, it's a good deal. If it's a non-runner you need to think a little more. The hydraulic lift components for square fender 110's don't seem as valuable as those for a 200 series, maybe $100-150. The nice condition model 80 cart could bring $100-400 depending on where you are and the true condition, hard to tell from the picture. If the deck is in good shape that's worth anther easy $100.

I would pick the pair up for that money without hesitation.

The tractor appears to be either a 1970 or 1971, and looks to be complete from what I can see in the picture. I'd give $300-$350 just for the tractor and mower deck if I was shopping and looking to add to the collection. As for the dump cart, more than likely a later 70's cart with the decal applied serial plate. Still though, could be sold by itself for at least $300.00. Good luck with the sale if you go for it!
