I was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer a couple of months ago. It has become apparent that chemo treatments are not buying me much time so to keep my wife from having to deal with a hoard that she doesn't have any knowledge of, it is time to try to liquidate as much as possible. There are most of the parts of 3 G5200's and a G4200 Kubota garden tractors. I have one that is drivable that I was building a show tractor with. It has a nice running D600 3 cylinder diesel with the "factory 3 point" and "power steering". It has new Deestone ag tires on the rear with sandblasted and powder coated rims while the front tires are new 5 rib Deestone on new wheels from Kubota. The battery, seat, and gear reduction starter are new. It has a NOS hood and grill assembly but the hood has very minor damage to the bottom. As far as I can tell, there are no more new hoods or grills left in the world. In addition, there are 2 more D600 engines. One ran pretty good and one will turn about 340 degrees. I think it got some water on the top of 1 cylinder through the intake port. I have not pulled the head to check but that is my diagnosis as it is a soft stop while rotating the engine. I have 3 extra hydrostat's and transmission assemblies, 3 frames, one of which has been sandblasted and stored in a climate controlled building. You could easily put a second tractor together. I have 2 good mower deck gear boxes along with a multitude of other parts. Everything Kubota goes together. $2250 and pick up in Central Texas. I haven't made up my mind if I am going to sell my Kubota powered MTD 990 or give it to my son in law but I will decide on that in a few days. I will be listing more in the next few days. It has been raining all day here but I will try to get some pictures tomorrow if it quits

Always sad to hear this diagnosis.  I wish you well.


You might consider keeping one to occupy your hands and mind.

Hope your efforts at easing your wife's burden are fruitful.
Sounds like a very good deal for someone within travel distance of Waco TX
If she does find herself in a situation that she need input in the future, please let her know there are tractor nuts out here that would have some opinions.
As for yourself, of course we all hope that the treatments become effective and the situation reverses direction.
I wish you well in the next phase and will continue to send prayers for the best possible outcome for the whole family.

Sorry to hear, this is the same cancer that took my wife's father last fall.  We will all see each other again on the other side.    Good luck on finding new homes for the Kubotas, the 3point for these is quite rare to find these days.    Mike

I will be praying for you. I have had to fight the "C" monster myself and it is not fun at all.
