I'm going to look at this on sun.

Anything I should be concerned with? Anything look wrong ? From what I've read so far ( here on GT talk) this has the rare/ hard to find hydraulic lift? What year? I think pre 65

Don't know a lot about the tractor but, sounds like a good price considering the hydraulic lift.

It's probably 66-68 model with the Hyd. lift. I see the tag is still at the bottom of the dash. If it runs like he says, I'd buy it!

Check the rear hubs aren't loose.  Pull/push tire tops, watch for wobble at hubs.  Steering wheel & floor boards look like 66-down some of them had just 1 set screw holding the hub to the axle.  Later ones had the same hokey hub attachment just had 2 set screws per hub.  Looks like a lot of weight on the wheels, digging puts a strain on the hubs.  If they are loose can tear up the axle ends.  Finding new hubs also a challenge

Hydro lift hard to find may be hard to find seals, would help to have hydro shop nearby.

Blade is lightweight snow blade not heavier dozer no trip springs

Missing pto try to negotiate that

Check tank for rust at least add a fuel filter.  Check motor for metallic sounds at idle, good luck

I'm thinking 1964 at any rate it would look great restored rear fenders are cool.

It's not a 66-68. They had the serial number tag on the lower left side of the grill. I'd say its a 64-63?

No I did not.

I am going to hold out for a complete tractor, something with fewer missing parts. Maybe just a repaint and some TLC.
