Your weekly finds seem to be a once in a lifetime find for me. I think I've only seen two open frame Deere's with Deere loaders my whole life! You Americans must have a green garden tractor or two in every barn, garage and shed in the land.
This one found me. The seller refuses to use classifieds to sell things do to previous experiences. He gave me a range he'd like an offer in, and his dream price. I paid the dream price and still smiled the whole ride home. It had a couple unexpected bonuses too, a 3-point hitch and a rear pto. I will have to use the 140 to jump it and get it off the trailer. It feels much more substantial then my 445/40 loader. If I had time to do a foot hydro conversion I'd be selling the 40.
