A really clean 1050 now being offered on eBay.

This would be a great choice for someone thinking of buying
their first garden tractor. Would also make a nice addition if
you were thinking of buying a second tractor. Could also be a
great choice for someone adding a third tractor. Would also make
an ideal fourth tractor. Could definitely be a very nice fifth tractor.

Well….You get the idea

Yeah it's real clean. It looks like a 1966 with the TR-10D, a little weaker than the TRA-10D but still OK. It also has the magneto ignition rather than the coil and voltage regulator. This could be why "it's hard starting"

Hard to say,depends on how bad someone wants it. The seller doesn't disclose the reserve so maybe he's just testing the waters? The other thing to keep in mind is there's only one attachment a 42" mower deck that needs some work. My guess around $500 unless someone "has to have it" then maybe $800-$1000. They don't come along everyday in this condition and it is the first 1050.

I saw that the other day. Looks really nice. In a way I'm glad it's too far away for me. I figured one of you New Yorkers would snatch it up. I think sixchows needs another one.

"I think sixchows needs another one"

As hard as I try, sometimes I just can't help myself. Like a moth to the flame..... Every time I think I'm out ... they pull me back in!

I don't want to get too crazy with this one but we'll see what happens.

There was a nice 23 on there the other day last I saw was at $530 something with around 23hrs to go. I think it was in wash. state?
When that big red bus shows up in front of the house it won't be to take us to sixflags!:D

OK it's your turn again! I won the auction for the 1050 shown above. Final bid $390. If it's as nice as the pictures, I feel it was a good deal. The seller said the deck is solid but needs a belt, blade, and hub. They should be easy enough to find. Not sure when I'll pick it up since I don't want to drive in the rain with it on an open trailer. The weather reports call for rain most of Sunday in that part of Jersey.

Looks like the first things to do will be putting the original red throttle cable on and fixing the top of the seat cover. Go ahead, call me a purist!:D

Congrats sixchows looks like a fine old tractor that someone took great care of. And it looks like you got it for a great price too. And yes you need to take a picture of all of them side by side.
