Looks decent, but missing the belt guard as usual.

$1200 for the 56 really? More money then brains I bet they hate what I payed for my 56 two days ago. 

 

The 59 has been off and on for sell for a long time its just to rusty for the price...

...  some one has gotten taken on this one! 

 

That's your opinion.

 

Obviously that opinion isn't shared by the guy that is biding on it.

 

He no doubt has what he considers a good reason for bidding that much, and I'm not going to try to second guess him nor belittle him for his reason(s).

Wish I could get my hands on one of those belt guards even for a temporary loan. I'd spec it out and have those repro'd so fast. Suprised no one has done it yet. Going to do a run of the RJ guard in a few weeks.

I have  heard of a few doing this but cant remember who.

 

Having OEM spec re-pops would certainly drive down the crazy prices of the used ones!

Every single time I look at other tractors, I like em, but there not a wheel horse. One day I might cave in. Some other brands sure are sweet.
