A Co-Worker took these pictures, and said it was just sitting out by the road in front of a house. I am thinking of going there (about 45 minuets from here) and knocking on the door. Any idea what it is? 

 

I showed my wife the picture and told here it really needed a better home, look how poor and lonely it looks. I won't tell you what she told me, but it was to the tune of "we don't need any more strays!"

 

Thoughts? How much should I offer if asked. Really just hoping to be told to just haul it off.

Not sure, was told it was sitting with other things, one may be a log splitter. I'll take my camera with me.

Old  strays make loyal companions. From the pictures rear tires look to be pretty good. I say the old fella needs adopting and some TLC.

Um, Ok, soooo Is it something that can be saved? What should I offer, if anything. I have the maps printed to get there.

Looks like a tiller, which makes more sense that far south.

 

Someone didn't like the left throw deck so they cut a discharge chute in the other side. 

I wonder which way it throws?

anything is saveable, I drug home alot worse, they are great machines and parts are easy to come across, if it turns out to be more of project you can easily part it out online and make a few bucks off it. I already see 4 nice 6-12 tires.
make sure it rolls and shifts, check the bevel gear box and the engine turns over the rest is cosmetic,

Those early B series ACs are great, I have 5 of them. I would assume the engine is bad(but hopefully rebuildable) because the gas tank is out and everything looks rough. Because of the attachments, I would go $100 to $200 depending on how things felt when checking the deck and tiller. I've bought tractors like that for as low as $40 without attachments. It looks like the tillers' PTO is missing. Check out Zippo Varga on Youtube to learn how to evaluate these machines. Good Luck, Rick

    Yep , great machines all around.  something looks wrong with that tiller??? the mule drive doesn't look like an allis one. the tractor itself looks pretty rough and I would look close to see how much hacking has been done, one of those tanks is wrong.  I would be a little concerned about that one and make sure I got it cheap.  $100 cheap.  Good luck with it.

It is definitely a project - I am in the process of fixing a Bolens tractor that is as bad or worse - http://gardentractor...ervice-project/ .  Depending on the initial cost and how bad you want to save it is a decision that you will have to make - isn't the addiction fun?
