Bringing the other 404 to the barnyard!

Fri Nov 22, 2013 6:08 pm

Well, since I need to clean out my shop at my other house before I sell it I figured today was as good as any to bring my other 404 to the barnyard. Now I just need to figure out where to put it. I may have to keep the old place just use the shop. :lol:

Nice one, Bill. Is it a runner? I like it.

If no room, you might sell it as a Demo, what with all that white paint :wink:

Roy, yes it runs. It used to be owned by the Jeep club I belong to. The engine was rebuilt about 15 years ago and then used to cut our camp grounds along with my other 404 several times a year. I bought both tractors about six or seven years ago when the club decided they didn't want them anymore. For years we cut with the belly mowers but when they needed to be rebuilt the club decided to use pull behind mowers with them.

Bill, before we bought them, this one was a state owned tractor, then the county got it and then it went to the local city department. My other 404 was a state tractor, then county and then our club bought it at the same auction the other went to the city.

Might want to rethink your answer to my question about your new loft :D

It won't get none of that, but I did salvage the basement steps from the same house to get up there. This is a lot better than that old wooden ladder made out of 2x4's that was nailed flat against the wall

Scrivet, I believe your response is finally making sense to me. :lol:
