Not too bad. Not as rusty as I guessed it might be.

My similar thoughts as well. The paint scheme may be lacking, but at least it has paint lol.

Kind of like some one wanted a Ford. Hows the mower for it?

Mower is solid, but all screwed up mechanically. Might sell it for parts.

I kinda like it. Like you said, better to have a poor paint job than to be rusted out.

I can't remember what forum it was on, but someone painted an S or GT in different colors. I think black and grey or silver. It was really neat.

Now that I have my Simplicity running and working right, it might get a paint job this winter, and I'm not thinking the Orange/Red on it now. Heck, the deck on my Bolens was supposed to be dark green.

Pretty nice for $50 ! How does this compare with the Cub you wanted to put the loader on ? The axle seems further back like on my 318 , might have a tighter turning radius then the Cub .

The best way to describe it is to say, it's like Alan's Roper on steroids. :D
I had no idea the New Holland / Ariens GTs were built so dag gone heavy. I mean the steering components are monsters, and right out there to see. The front/mid PTO shaft goes through the front axle pivot.

A little update, it is somewhat apart... Had to take the control lever box off to free up the hydro control shaft. It took the acetylene torch with rosebud on it to get it moving. I repainted the box and the frame behind the box. I will be drilling that tube for a grease zerk ths week, that is rediculous to not have that already...

Right now it is an outdoor tractor... Hopefully it can find a tarp this week lol. Definitely want it under roof, so might see if I can get it in with the Farmalls.

Looks pretty nice to me, although I will say the colors look a little off but it looks like it was well worth the $50.

Congrats :thumbs:

Ya, not too enthused by the paint scheme, but I believe it to be New Holland Blue at least, and they didn't get too creative, and at least stayed away from the John Deere Green paint as well. Let's just say I found a can of close enough blue in the shop to repaint the control box after burning half the paint off with the torch, so I must like the blue enough lol. If it wasnt a $50 tractor I would be more critical of the painting methods of "If it doesn't move, paint it; if it does move, paint it; if it wasnt painted before, paint it now" Lol. Makes tracing wires tougher for sure...

Its always interesting to see the colors picked for a repaint. What style are the front spindles? And it has hubcaps.

Ok, the Holland is reassembled and I must say the last hardware I installed was tough to see when the sun went down. I have to say that I am quite impressed with the tractor now that I get to DRIVE it around in the dark lol. I must say that it has quite a lot of get up and go... Go fast... Go really fast lol.

Anyone have the rear lift rockshaft for one of these?
