I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I read this, no low ball offers? He's going to be lucky to get a $50 bill for that pile.........

 

 

(Wants $250)

Looks rough, but a good restoration candidate. Ran when parked. Tires hold air. Deck is solid.

No lowball or lame offers please.

That deck could be modified to handle those 4' plus snow banks you know. Mount the deck vertical on the front of your machine with the blades facing forward and the chute at the top. Weld the blades on edge to the spindles and run the thing off the front PTO at full throttle.

If u can't take the time to unbury it don't even bother. How does he know the tires hold air, maybe when it was parked they did. Oh yeh it ran too.

I would say it's been parked for a while it might make a good resto or parts tractor but not for that kind of money

They look on ebay and see what people are wanting for one just like it and they think there's is worth that much . It's only worth what someone will pay you for it

He's surely not in sales,if he just pulled it in the driveway for the picture he may garner half money

if it comes with the rare FMC JOUSTING ATTACHMENT you see on the hood, it might be worth it. :rolling:

I don't understand too much or not why don't people at least drag it out, brush it off or hose it off so a person can see what their selling. When they do this that leads me to think they don't want you to see what it really looks like  :(
