The not-so-bad news is that the grille and side panels appear to be missing but those are easily found.

The good news is the price.

The even better news is that it appears to have the optional F-30 Hylift and you don't see that very often.

IMO>> who cares about the deck? These are collector tractors. Buy it, restore it, parade it and show it. Forget the deck. Sell it to someone and recover a few bucks.

I have been following this as well and I am pondering...
Well, now that I've exposed this to everyone you may want to get over there with some cash & a trailer instead of waiting for him to pay you to take it off of his hands! :sidelaugh:
Well I pondered and pondered until my ponderer couldn't ponder anymore. Part of me wanted to go get this and part me wanted to stay in, so I dragged myself out of the house and two hours later picked it up for a mere $160.

It does come with the side panels and grille, but this poor little guy has never seen a garage it's decals are faded real bad and the lift cylinder is to rusty to salvage, this one will go on my list to restore.

Any hydraulics shop can make a new rod for that cylinder and sell you some new seals for it. I know you well enough that restoration is the goal here. Nice score, by the way. Glad to see it went to someone who won't butcher it or part it out.

Seems like a good project for you to post in the restoration forum, Frank. I take it this is a disc brake model.

Well you all know I got that first one, but I also picked up another one this weekend, along with a few other makes, the last two pics is the first one under cover.

It would appear this one has never seen a garage either, which makes sense as it has no eyes. :mrgreen:
