Here's a craigslist listing for a '62 600 with snow caster, blade, deck. etc.

Doesn't LOOK too bad, other than having the sheet metal painted red.

LAWN GARDEN TRACTOR

This was just listed today.

That seems like a lot of money for that model. I just bought a great running 800, 2 blowers, 2 plows, and a mower deck for $200 less.

I called the guy, and bought the wheel weights and chains. Weights are from a Craftsman, so they won't satisfy the "Correct Police", but as long as they give me the extra traction in the winter I don't care what they say on them :smile1:
Chains are for the narrow wheels like the 800 has.

He says that he would REALLY like to sell the rest as a pkg. It was originally his FIL's. He says he has a couple of the small Bolens Grease guns as well.

I talked to him for quite a while. Nice guy.

With all thats included I'd say offer $100 less and see what happens


Also talked about the $$ and told him what you folks were saying, and also that it's a '63 as opposed to a '62. He said that he would let the whole pkg go for $500.00. Which will still get him close to the 600.00 since I gave him 75.00 for the weights and chains.

I didn't get a chance to see the tractor, as I picked up the weights at his work place.

Any idea if he will sell the grease guns by them selfs?

It's possible that he may do that, I didn't ask.

That looks in good shape.Can never figure out why people paint them colors other than what they are supposed to be.

When I was talking to Steve, he said that those were a free offer from Bolens. I had assumed (silly me) :blush2: , that they were Bolens branded.

I think that I may have one of those rascals floating around in the garage. I bet my FIL got one of them through Bolins as well. Gonna have to look. :D
