Congrats John! Nice looking bunch you have there, however, are you certain that last one is an RJ?  I could be wrong but I don't think the RJ's had that kind of lifting set up with the half circle and notches. I believe you have a model 400. Anyway, Congrats again!  :thumbs:

that's what I thought at first too, but the po who was a long time collector swears he has the tag, it was not on the tractor he had left it somewhere and is goung to mail it to me, doesn't matter mush to me as I only paid him $300 can/ $225us for the 58 and 62

They look great, have fun with them. Some times when we look at tractors, we really are not sure what model it is, but some one who really knows them, will let you know. Great find.

Nice haul! I agree with the others on the 400, dropped axle, lift sector, solid hood support, foot rests (1960 only).

Never figured out the early Horses. They all look about alike and change models when they change a bolt or part! :smilewink:  I've always wanted to try one of the newer 520's and NOW, You are Hogging two of them! :poke:  They seem priced out of my range, when I don't really need another tractor anyway, but might find one some day.

you have to be patient and follow the ads closely, I have 4 520 wheel horses, I straight front axel and 3 swept forward, I think that for clearance for a 60 inch deck (wish I had one) none of them cost me more than $400 can / $300 us all came with mowers one came with a plow also, keep you eyes open and fingers crossed
