nonrunners don't fetch $300 apiece, so you're thinking closer to right.  I couldn't put $200 into each, personally.  Decks are negligible unless you have the deep desire to collect them.  I can't get rid of them.  I'd say maybe $15-$175 for the original one, less for the repaint.  Maybe $30 per dozer.  Wheel weights are $100/pair all day, every day.

Man, wished I could find some wheel weights down my way for that, people think they are gold filled down here.

 

I would say 150-200 for non runners also.

That B10 looks like a nice original GT.I would be happy to own it.

The Big 10 looks like a $400-$500 machine but be careful and check it out.

 

That muffler is a bit on the small side.I think they are rated up to 8hp.Reason Im saying this is that if it's to constricted it will Burn the valves and rings out of it.

 

 

I adapted a 3.5hp screw in muffler on a 5hp briggs and it ran but it ended up killing the engine.It overheated the valves,blew the head gasket and cooked the rings out of it.

 

The engine smoked a bit and was off of a small Generator with tapered shaft so it was pretty much usless anyway.

    Big ten and b-10 are pretty much the same thing other than the tin, They say the big ten's are rare, not sure about that.  Others on here will know better about that.  I have a big ten and love it, great machine.  That big ten looks in really nice cond, I would say $400 would be a good price as long as it runs and drives ok, check the bevel gear box and rear end for excessive play.

Ive never asked more than $100 for a pair of oem weights, which seems like the average...and they ship anywhere for $13. I could spare a set if you like.

The Big Ten and B-10 share identical sheetmetal. The Big Ten is the same tractor as the late B-10, and varies only slightly from the early B-10 (steering gears, engine, minor differences in clutch/brake etc).

The Big Ten is a one year tractor and is the only model that doesnt carry the "B" prefix. Some folks find them a touch more interesting but I dont see them valued higher than the others.

That one looks good but has been repainted, most likely in Old Cat Yellow....its a much richer yellow than oem. That is a red flag for me....just needs a closer look...because most repaints are either hiding excessive wear and abuse or are a terrible sloppy mess. I have bought some as a gamble, to find out upon pickup that they were painted with a brush...a BRUSH! These are abundant enough that a guy with patience can find a very well kept original or nicely refinished tractor for $400.

Wow, thanks for the offer. The AC project is a long time off and I have my Sears weighted down already so I am good for a bit.....and no spare toy money, getting tranny in Tahoe rebuilt :wallbanging:
