Just home from WI Saturday with Farm King 16 with tiller. Some pix. None running now, did turn some and wanted to fire with st. fluid and slow cranking. Needs battery first to crank faster. ALSO, No room at the INN!

That one looks pretty good there Grumpy.The tractor looks to have very little rust on it and the tiller looks very solid.

 

How's the dash on this 1?Is that left rear rim leaking fluid?Looks like you have a couple Tines to straighten out on the tiller but it also looks like it wasn't used that much.The tines are in Great condition other than some bends.

Congrats on the "New to You!"

Could you post a photo of the hi-low-neutral.  I'm eyeing one or two around here that might be be MTD's, just don't have the distinctive grill.

Hey! Let's watch the paint on the M-Moline, shall we?

 

Congrats on the 990, it's in nice shape.

Nice Farm King you picked up. Can you keep it in the living room?

Pictures look nicer than real tractor. Plenty of greasy and rusty area by pto. There are two arms, one each side that hook to a shaft, look like a lift. I don't have those on my other 990 and wondered if it was for a snowblade that is not quick attach? I got blade lit with it, no blade though and it had two lift straps that might hook on these arms?? Here's a pix.

Think I'm gonna sell the tiller if any interest. It has some new tines on it in few places. The shaft is there and a back guard. Also seems to me where that seal that is off the front drive shaft is a bad bearing. I can wiggle shaft and see the ball bearing there move a lot. I won't ship, but might go to Portland, IN swap with it in May. Any offers? the tiller requires the 3pt and upper link, which I am keeping.
