  Not a garden tractor.  I am putting it on here first, before craigslist.

Belongs to a friend.  He's not into computers and internet. 

1979,  675 hours,  4 cyl. gas   3 pt. w/ drawbar  new front tires, very good rear tires 

 

He's ready to sell.    Asking  $2500  { He can be hard of hearing sometimes}

 Contact Larry at  1-217-286-3288

Rossville, IL.

Wholly , that's a nice tractor. And a good price. Only trouble is , no front rib or rear ag tires. For my liking, I'd want the farm tires.

It's a good thing that's just a little too heavy for my trailer or I'd have some 'splainin to do for the missus.

A beauty, how does that compare to the famous Lo Boy?

A beauty, how does that compare to the famous Lo Boy?

 

500 lbs. heavier than the LoBoy.  I believe the number series (154, 185, 184) LoBoy tractors were built like a garden tractor - frame with powertrain components bolted on, where this one is built like a farm tractor.  28HP vs. 12-15 on the Cubs.

 

I also believe it has a standard clockwise 540 rpm PTO instead of the counterclockwise 1600 rpm PTO on the LoBoy, so you could go up to Tractor Supply tomorrow and buy implements to work with the PTO.

Built by Komatsu where the LoBoys were manufactured by IH.

 

He's price at or below a good condition numbered LoBoy, of course the LoBoys usually include a mower.

 

If it had R1 tires on it it'd be a heck of a deal for someone wanting a small farm tractor.

 

My trailer is only rated 2090 gross and the trailer weighs 1010.  But realistically it should haul almost 2500 lbs., but not legal for that because no brakes.  If this 284 had AG tires I'd be sorely tempted to risk a ticket.

Yup, lot different animal than my LoBoys. Just curious as to the gear range. 3/4 spd. hi/lo range? That was a weakness for the LoBoys, imo. They have 3 spd., one range, and 2nd to 3rd is loooooong.

 

Beautiful machine. I wish your friend good luck with the sale. I don't think he'll need much.
