It appears that the tractor is one of the later 1970's version with electric lift. One thing I would want to be sure of, is that the electric lift motor is in good shape and that it operates as it should. These can be hard to find, if needing to be replaced or repaired. From what I can see or tell by the pictures, it appears that the mower deck and front blade are in decent shape. As for the cart, I can't tell by the pictures if the serial plate is an aluminum tag or a decal. If it's original to the tractor, I'd say it's an aluminum tag serial plate, and was manufactured between 1969-1974. If it has a decaled serial plate, then it's one of the later carts manufactured after 1974. Either way, you have a nice old cart. As for a package deal price value. I wouldn't be afraid to offer as high as $700.00. Here is the break down of how I came up with this number.
If you were to sell each of these items individually:
-Tractor and Mower Deck = $350.00 - $400.00
-80 Dump Cart = $250.00 - $350.00
-43 Front Blade = $125.00 - $150.00
Even if you kept the dump cart for yourself, and just sold the tractor, mower deck and front blade, for the lower end pricing above, you still bought yourself the dump cart for $225.00, which is cheaper than what you could sell it for. Just my opinion, and these are estimated prices only. Hopefully you'll be able to get the whole package deal for around $350.00!
