Well amigos I've done it I've finally achieved a goal every allis collector strives for owning a rare piece. Mine is a one owner very nice original hb212. Getting it for 1100 but it's coming with snowblower, 42in deck and a custom made an vac trailer. It ran like a dream was stores inside every minute it wasn't cutting or plowing and was only modified slightly with headlamps, new front tires and an ugly jd seat otherwise all original and very sharp. I'm very excited and very lucky to have found it. Guys eighty so he's not parting with it cause its broken or wants money just wants to see it go to a good one before he dies and his kids have to try and sell it. He's a very nice gentleman throwing in all the original paperwork manual and anything else that may help me in the future. I can't wait to bring this to the Hutchinson show and show it off.

Right its not as fun if there's no story behind it. It was ninty percent luck I'll admit that it wasn't ment to be I guess. If anyone's going to orange spectacular next month in Hutchinson you'll see her there. I'll admit that seat is a little off putting but I'm gonna buy a brand new one after the show so don't worry I'm taking care of it already lol

Great tractors...my favorites are the hydros.  The Vickers drive is so smooth and strong, and if she doesn't leak, you have a real winner.  My HB-212 had a late Vickers pump with the added bronze bushing to eliminate the pintle shaft wear that causes it...peek to see if yours does too!  My HB-112 does not, and had to be rebuilt...it peed ATF everywhere it went  :smilewink:

 

This one definitely looks repainted though.  All the decals appear to have been taped off and some items are yellow that were not originally.  Looks like the darker Old Cat Yellow that most folks use on these.  An OEM seat shouldn't be hard to find...I might have a good Guide light.

Seat may be sold already I have a spare in the garage and as for the light I may be interested. When I go pick it up I'll look for that bushing should be easy to spot if it's bronze. Did you ever sells yours yet? This is definitely a steal with all the stuff he's throwing in
