    nice tractor ... but way over priced!
    $1,650 and doesn't include plow ($750) or other attachments.

    too many deals pop up on craigslist to consider spending that much $$$...

    was an exceptional deal, but just scored an International harvester with 40hp diesel, excellent tires with front end loader, included bucket and brush hog for $850 ... starts right up, runs strong with no smoke... hydraulic rams leak, but that's $100 for parts fix.

    needless to say that deal lasted all of 15 minutes ... lucked out by being first caller.

    It is a worker, it has mowed my lawn for the last 5 years.
    Caught on fire too! The float bowl bolt got loose and gas started dripping on the engine block. Oops.
    But that'll buff right out :D
