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.
