Definately not rare but a very well built and desirable machine.

The B10 was built from 1963 to 1968. You can probably get the manufacture date off the engine and add one year to that.

GOOD LUCK

    Those b-10 are pretty common everywhere but gtractor is correct, I have three of them and love them.  very durable and easy to work on just don't pay to much for it, figure $300 for a good running machine with no big issues.  check the engine on there and see what it is, it should be a briggs. if it is a 23d then you will have trouble getting parts, if it a 243400 series engine you should be able to get parts fairly easily.  Keep us informed and good luck.

They are a great tractor and there are many attachments available. I have 3 and about 20 attachments. That muffler is wrong. Its too small and set to catch rain water that can damage the engine. Be very suspicious of it. Check out www.simpletractors.com to learn more about the B10. Good Luck, Rick

This guy wants 350 and it's not running. Apparently it is the 23d engine. Thanks all for your replies. I think I'll pass on this one and keep looking.

B10 was not built from '63 to '68. Early B10 with 23D engine (9HP) was late '63 and '64. BigTen with 10HP was '65 only model and late B10 with Bumble Bee decal and 243400 engine was built '66 to late '67 when the B110 came out.....Dave

Every now and then one of these comes up for sale in my area but not too many around. Hoping for a running b10, b12 or b110,b112. Our neighbours when I was a teenager had a B112. I like the square hood and Chrome air cleaner. Hopefully the right deal comes along.

Yup, that's not the deal you're looking for.  Looks like a quickie spray bomb job, hacked sheetmetal, and operating condition unknown.  I don't give more than $100 for parts tractors unless they have options/accessories.  Been burned a few times, even at $100.  Certainly not a scrapper, but will require some elbow grease, and probably parts.
