I have never seen one of these and it looks cool. Are those wheel weights engine flywheels?  I don't think it's worth what he's asking for it. IMO

That is a rare bird have never heard of or seen one but for say 675.00 I'd own it if I were not on the other side of the country.

The Root Range Rider has a lot in common with the David Bradley Suburban. The frame,front axle,complete steering assembly including the steering column,engine type and set up,mule drive and even the mower deck. The hood and grill are almost a match for a 725 David Bradley. From what little I have been able to find Root didn't start building this model until about 1964. Also in what little I have found,it says Root did build some stuff for David Bradley. Not sure what the connection is but if you set a 1962 David Bradley 725 next to a Root Range Rider. It is like comparing a GMC pick up to a Chevy pick up.

That's a must have for a collector of odd ball garden tractors.  Anything under 300 miles, and my hoarding self would be on the road.
