My grandpa had a tractor just like that - I remember riding on it with him... must have been about 4 or 5 at the time.

Good find! Esp. for $300.

You should have picked it up with the f-150. That would have gotten you a few looks.

Gas? Wish I could find a smaller one like that with hydraulic setup, would be great for the light duty stuff at the farm. Wish it had a F/R PTO though.
