I would like to have one of these tractors someday. Awhile ago it was up for auction and brought 1100 bucks I beleive. I know the weights arnt right. Loader did work. Lifted the front end off the ground. Started decent and ran good. Had the 3 point and pto. Not too familiar with them. What are they worth? ( I know people sometimes don't like that question but just curious so I know if I find another) any good or bad things? Are they parts avaliable drivetrain, engine? Thanks justin20140905_165150.jpg 20140905_165140.jpg

I'd say someone got a pretty good deal at $1100.

I think that was a heck of a deal myself. The loader will bring almost that by itself and so will the tractor. I would look closely to see where the loader arm are bent and it might be an easy fix to straighten out.

Cant help you on price but what I can tell you is these are a decent tractor when all tuned up.

Parts are a little scarce but they do pop up ......

Dang I used to have one just like it and same shape too haha. Bad little tractor but I sold it for a jd 430. Honestly the bolens was sweet but the 430 with the yanmar just had a bit more balls. Parts are a little hard to get for the bolens but you will love it.
