Hey all my neighbor found an 816 with pull behind tiller, snow blower, and deck. He got it running today. No pics as of yet. Its a 1976 model. What do you all think? Wisconsin here by the way

Guess I don't understand the question.

Is it worth selling?

I too think that is a strange question. My 3414s had a wheelhorse seat on it when I bought it. The darn thing was hard as a marble slab so I took it off and replaced it. Some months later I got tired of moving it around and threw it in the scrap heap. I suddenly realized someone might want that. I put it on E-bay and sold it in a lively auction for more than $100. It is far better to sell than to scrap IMO not withstand the condition of your tractor.

Absolutely...if he wants rid of it, sell it.  Or donate it.  I wouldn't pitch it, especially if he put effort into getting it running, and it has useful attachments.  It should sell easily in WI.
