Atleast they were stored inside. Worst thing you can do for a machine is get them wet and have them outside.
I think you'll be surprised how good they will look when you wash off the 2'' of dust
I think they will clean up as well. You can't tell in the pictures but the 850 and 900 have blocks under them so the tires wouldn't go bad as the air eventually escaped. It'll be awhile before I get around to doing much with them.. although I would like to get the sickle bar mower operational sometime this summer.
Weres the Ridemaster now!
I'm guessing the 2 wheel and the Ridemaster were traded back into Dye's tractor sales (my great grandparents). The later model tractors came from Lashley's Tractor Sales in Quaker City Ohio. I wouldn't be surprised if I find some type of ridemaster attachment buried in the barn. It's a two story barn.. and it's packed full of stuff (as if the pictures didn't give that away lol). Pap used to keep his Farmall C, Travel Trailer, 20ft Utility Trailer, and a Dump Truck in the barn - then as some of it was sold.. the spots once occupied became filled with Auction goodies... or junk.. just depends on your perspective I suppose lol.
