I bought this a couple months back and Jeff Lauber was able to pick it up for me in his travels to IN today and drop it off at my Mom & Dad's place. It appears to be in pretty decent shape and came with a snow plow and spear set of rear tires. The front tires are a real joke, I have no idea why someone would put those on but we'll find the right ones for it. The first 2 photos are taken at Mom & Dads, the rest are when it was still loaded on the PO trailer.

Thanks again Jeff for the transport job, I really appreciate it.

Nothing like duals (but on the front?). Nice tractor, Brian!

Which one of the girls are the lucky owner? Looks like a nice start to a great little tractor.

I'm guilty of the front tire gag too. When you're given a tractor with no front wheels you use whatever you can find to put it on the trailer. I didn't want to damage good bearings on rusted axles. Good Luck, Rick

When I saw the front tires in the thumbnail I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Nice little machine.

Nice find. Are you going to do a restoration? You've got a very good candidate there.
