It's hardly bigger than the JD you just got done with. You'll barely notice it's there.

Ok, after seeing this close up and talking with the owner, He paid $100 for it, unknown when, he want's $75 and seemed pretty firm. I offered $40 on the spot and was declined. Asked if I could take some pictures to see what it may be worth and I would call him this evening. I have $50 in cash that I can part with, and $75 wouldn't break the bank. Just looking for honest opinions. I won't feel bad on passing, unless it is one of those Texas Rare things that I would kick my self for later on.

 

1. I will need to "create" some storage space for this. 

2. Steering is broke, doesn't turn the wheels, I thing at the pinion gear.

3. All gas tanks rusted through.

4. Front tires are questionable.

5. Engine is free, couldn't feel any compression.

6. hood just lays on, no support.

7. Tiller missing motor,

8. It looks to have been there a long time.

Here are the pictures, can you tell me more about this.

$100 is a good buy if you needed some parts, these are pretty common and pop up fairly often for around that same $$. The tiller just looks wrong!! If it were an Allis tiller it would not need a motor it would run from a mule drive on the back of the tractor ( I don't see there ) so that's against it. If you don't need it and can lI've without I would pass, especially if you aren't looking for another project.

sounds like a $40 offer was more than fair. Unless you needed it for parts, I wouldnt mess with it.

If I had another one, maybe, This is the first A/C I have seen in these parts, and like the Ford LGT I came across, It was expensive and challenging. Yes I am trying to talk my self into another rescue mission, Wife is ok with the decision I make, so, hmm. I'll wait for some more comments, I have time, doesn't look like it is going any where soon. and the weekend is long.

I think the tiller is a Haben built unit. Not sure who's label it might be.

I am thinking of going back for the tiller, if I can make it work on the Craftsman sleeve hitch, I consider that a win, if not, I'm out $25.

Thanks Kenny, I think a HF engine could be fitted on there, I am wondering if it would work on a sleeve hitch. I see a possible top link, Might need to figure the bottom out.

Hard to tell from the pics. Plus you have to think about how heavy this will be to lift!

Yea, I was wondering if cranking on the lift assist spring would counter the weight.
