found this for sale.  I know little about shaw tractors and was looking for opinions.  Biggest question is is complete, thinking it should have hood.

thanks

That is an R7 which is a fairly rare tractor.  Produced from 1940 to Pearl Harbor.  A handful produced during the war and shortly after.  Replaced with the R7A around late 1947.  The hood is missing but the rest looks complete from the pictures.

Very nice find.  Great looking tractor even if it is missing the hood.  I'd like to find one myself someday.

So it's missing hood and one rear tire needs a tube, really could use new rear tires. Guessing to find a hood will be like winning the lottery! Having one made will be at least $500 I'm guessing and the guy wants $2000. So any idea's on value and a replacement hood? This is the first and only shaw I've seen for sale and wondering when the next one might come along.

You must be in Wisconsin? I noticed this tractor in the Madison Craigslist but looking tonight, the ad appears to be gone. Are you the lucky buyer? If so, congrats!

 

Here in SE Wisconsin, I only know of a couple Shaw's; the R6 & R12T that I own and an R8 that I saw at the Richfield show last September and have since gotten to know the owner of. They are very uncommon in this area.

No I didn't buy it yet and the ad is still up.  If it had the hood I'd be all over it, but without the hood I'm thinking it's over priced.  Also I'm not sure I want it without the hood.  I've no real idea as to value, other than my own threshhold for financial pain.  Yes I'm in Wi, southwest of Janesville.

Personally, I agree in that it's more than I'm interested in spending without a hood and rear tire work needed. On the other hand, it's the only Shaw rider that I've ever seen for sale in Wisconsin in the years that I've been looking. If I was looking for my first Shaw or needed an R7 to fill a void in my collection, I would probably be a whole lot more interested.

 

I live in Hartford; about an hour or so north of you.
