Yesterday with family in town and looking for something to do we decided to go on the Iowa highway 141 garage sale trek. It is aproximately 100 miles with hundreds of garage sales along the way. I had been keeping my eyes open for any GT releated items as we went along. After stopping at several sales, the second to last stop we pulled up I notice this John Deere cart sitting for sale. I didnt know what to expect for a price but when I saw the $20 tag I didnt hesitate or even hagel with the guy just pulled out a $20 and loaded it up. I does have a few rust through holes in the top which will be fixed and then a new paint job to come. Here are some pictures. 100_1651.jpg 100_1650.jpg 100_1649.jpg 100_1652.jpg

That's a nice cart and not that common. For 20$ it's a great deal.

Me thinks you should feel guilty about that one.  :smilewink:

 

 

Congrats on the great find.  The Route 6 garage sale sounds fun.

Hello

The John Deere Model 30 dump Cart's were not made in house by John Deere like all of their other dump cart's were. They contracted to The Radio-Flyer Corp. out of Chicago, Illinois to make them.  They were intended to be used with the small John Deere rear engine rider mowers R-72's and such in the late 1970's time span. They were not a strong seller so John Deere dropped them from this sales brochure about Two year's after Introducing them. I have had one for about 25 Year's. I gave $25.00 for it way back then at a John Deere dealership, so you got a Killer deal. Mine needed to be restored so I recently did so. I bought a decal Kit for a model 80 dump cart as John Deere does not offer one for the model 30 cart as they had such a short life span that John Deere never ofered it. I cut The "8" Portion of the 80 decal in half to give me the Number 30 that I needed on the cart. Here is mine restored these are very desireable, Very collectible,  and very hard to locate. Regards, Hammerdown
