    I agree that's a good idea but I don't think he will go for it. It's main job will be bushhogging fields on the eastern shore of Maryland. Which some say is flat enough to watch your dog runaway for 3 days;-)

    Nice artisan! I'll try to sell him on it. He is a hard sell though.

    Nice find. Appears someone has refurbished it. Looks like new paint. Correct colors except for the air breather. For a few finishing touches, A 135 emblem for each side and a decal set would finish it out. If it had original paint I might say the hors are right. Since it has been restored I'd question the hours. As long as your dad is happy with the deal is all the matters. In it"s current condition, I'd questimate it's worth over $3200

    Yeah. I'm skeptical but I have not put my eyes on it. The story is it was babied its first part of life and sat outside the second half. Decals are on the way

He did some mowing with it and said it was a beast!!
    If your going to be using it on hilly terain as Artisan mentioned a ROPS (Roll Over Protection) would be a good idea. If the tractor has been siting awhile the voltage regulator would be the first thing I'd look at along with tracing all wires from point to point looking for breaks, chew marks, loose connections. Those emblems on the sides. Do they come with the tractor? I didn't see a picture of the front to know if that emblem is there. Those original emblems are vary rare and can be aquired thru salvage yards. I have an extra set I might part with. I was going to have them rechromed till I got the estimate. Good used emblems can be restored by hand and look pretty good. Lastly get you some good manuals for it, if some didn't come with it. www.agcopartsbook.com has the best documentation.
