Mike, you need to start antibiotics. Seems you've caught a virus or something! LOL Kidding aside....nice rig there. $400 is a bargain even with rust.

Daniel is right, a green oozing virus, you better go see the doctor and get a prescription. Then go see the eye doctor and get him to check your color vision LOL





Good buy.

Nice buy. Now you have 'ventured into the dark side'. Not bad for the money. Good luck with it.

Good buy.

I think he already did see the doctor. The prescription for that particular illness is to buy more green tractors. Nice tractor there Mike. Wheel weights and chains, all ready to push some snow!

Rust was probably cause by the cab itself trapping water and snow, ice, etc.

$400 is a great price, the cab is worth quite a bit itself. Then a 400!

Well I never!
The "force" must be strong right now. Might have to do with solar flares.
The cab will be nice on those nights when it's colder than really cold. good score.

There was a cab advertised locally a few weeks ago for $600. I wish I could find a 4 way blade for only $400. John Deere wheel weights go for around $100-$150. And a JD 400? That's simply a once in a lifetime deal. You Sir, have trophied!!
