Hey Guys,

 

I just wanted to share with you this poor Toro 7 i found over the weekend. Engine is stuck, and not to mention trying to get it out of the tree lol. Anyone think it is worth trying to save?

Wow, that tractor must have been there for atleast 25 years or better !

May be just better leaving this one go, that deck is most likely shot

No, the tree is not worth saving. It is too close to the house & the roots will crack the foundation. Go ahead & cut it down to save the tractor.

I would probably save it on principle. If for no other reason than the story.

I would have to save the spindle/wheel in the tree after it was cut just as a conversation piece .

That looks like a sweetgum tree,their roots will get into the foundation as was said above.

Casey's right.  I'd snatch it up.  You don't see many old Toro 4 wheel conventional tractors of that era.

 

Call Paul Bunyan in and let him have it!

I believe I would pass on that one.  I've taken on some challenges but that one looks like more trouble than anything else.
