My latest toy and rescue from the depths of a garage. This one came form right down the road from me, I met the guy a couple of years ago and got to talking to him about it. It has been in his family since his dad bought it, and they used it to plow and disc a garden plot until he parked it about five years ago. I talked to him last fall and he said he was considering getting rid of it. I went and talked to him again today and it followed me home today. I put a good battery on it and poured a little gas on the air filter and it fired right up. I couldn't pass it up for the price either, free! He said since my brother and I collect and use them, and would give it a good home that I could have it.

That is the way it is supposed to be: one tractor per attachment(permanently attached). Good Luck, Rick

That's the problem! lol I have two garden plows, a disc, snow blade, deck, and a generator. That means I need at least one more tractor to be able to put two attachments on each.

Wow, great deal on a nice looking tractor. Certainly under the 'Survivor' category IMHO
It looks a little familiar for some reason... :D
Some people think that grill to be less than pretty... I actually think its one of my favorites.

That's the problem! lol I have two garden plows, a disc, snow blade, deck, and a generator. That means I need at least one more tractor to be able to put two attachments on each.

Solution, permanently store that generator up here on one of my tractors.

I like this style of grill over the later style. If I send my generator to you, that still leaves to question, the use of one rear attachment. lol
