He threw in a 3-point from an early Sears, Model 917.253061, missing one lower link. And a Sears 3-point plow, Model 917.253010. All for $400.

Just noticed, and it's not fair....you got a perfect seat too! Seats are always ripped when I get a tractor! Congrats on a great acquisition Kenny!

Looks like you got a good deal Kenny. I also noticed the seat was not torn so it must have been looked after or at least kept out of the element's. I hope you enjoy your new member.

No power steering. That blade is home made and goes all the way back to the 3-point pins. Kinda heavy on the front wheels.

That is awesome Kenny! What a great find! Yup Big Bertha will love that one for sure! Quick question are those 2 RPG's sticking out the grill? If they are the plow must just be to clear the debris field :D
