I was just curious why there seems to be a demand/need/want for the john deere model 80 dump carts.

What makes it more desirable compared to the others?

We may ask the question on why any of this old stuff is so desirable. I think, in most cases, it's the fact that it's old, that it's well made, that it's durable, that it's sort of rare, etc. I know the Cub Cadet guys go ga-ga over the Original. To me, I wouldn't want an Original, but most people do. Same with the round fendered John Deeres, they are sought after also.

Thanks for the replies guys.

It may just be me but I always seem to hear about the model 80 carts all the time.

I know that Cub Cadet has some sought after carts also, the IH variety.

Not many of them are all that strong IMO. I want to build my own hydraulic dump cart if I could ever get time. Mine would be for serious use rather than collecting.

Some day when I get back on track again,I'm still going to build that dump trailer that I talked about back last Summer.

I was thinking of building a wooden one from some old plans I found on the internet. That'd be cool. The plans/link are on my other 'puter though, and that's at my BIL's.
