I would agree with Beaver. Never ceases to amaze me how people try to sell things with that type of pics.

It's a Baird Beaver for sure. It looks like it has a red grip on the implement lift handle, and there's remnants of the dash that wraps over the gas tank still bolted to the top of the engine. The red grip and AKN engine date that tractor to early 1955. That engine is a Wisconsin AKN. The BKN replaced the AKN some time in '55. I would have to look at Peter Zanders ID pics again on the Beaver tractors websight to be certain. If it were free and within a half hour away, I would pick it up for parts.

I took a closer look at the pics and noticed that the front plow blade attachment is attached to the tractor. The tractor may not look so bad if it were out from under the rubble. Here's my early '55 Beaver tractor with the AKN and red grips instead of the earlier black knobs. My tractor has the plow lift linkage underneath, but it's missing the hood.

Just what I was thinking. 

If its not worth dragging out for a good pic it much not be worth anything to the seller.  Offer him $5.

Only reason it is rare is it hasn't see full daylight for 40 years or more.  Naturally preserved - with leaves, water, dirt, junk, etc.   Don't think it is worth the effort to get it dug out.  Just to be mean somebody go get it and throw the junk every which way and drive off.

"buyer had to get it out".... that reminds me of the "free firewood" ads with a pic of a giant dead tree right next to a house

    My daughter rode around on a beaver at the Hudson engine show last fall and fell in love.  I wouldn't mind having it but refuse to call someone looking for offers on a RARE !! tractor.  guy probably thinks he is setting on gold.

He's probably hoping someone will come and dig it out and tell him what it is so he can ask a outlandish price.
