Hello everyone, a friend is considering buying a used early 1980's Bolens / Iseki diesel tractor - a G244. Do they offer an add on mid mount PTO? Or does anyone have a Front Mount PTO kit to sell?

Also, any input on this type of tractor would be appreciated - are they decent, are they crap?, parts availability? what breaks?, what is a re-painted G244 with less than 1000 hrs sell for with a loader?
