Been looking for one of these for years...


Finally found a nice one, but too bad someone painted it like a John Deere. Nothing that some paint won't fix.

Its all original, even has the original tires on the rear.. All OE industrial 40 horse engine thats never been rebuilt. It needs a tune up but runs well, too bad the guy has been using SAE 30 oil in it and of a no-name brand. It gets Snake Oil ASAP!

We will be putting it to work at the RAT compound.. Its not going to be a conversation piece, it'll be a work horse!

But wouldn't it look awesome with a 3 liter EFI TIV and monsterous throttle bodies hanging out of the cowl?

That is awesome. What are the original colors? Does it have a PTO and three point hitch like a regular tractor?
