And a manual lift to boot.

EDIT: I closed the pic before I noticed the manual lift lever was missing!!! A manual lift without any way to lift it!!!!

At that price they should have thrown in some front weights.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I always heard sickle mower pulleys are expensive. :lol:

If the headlights are on why isn't the amp gauge showing discharge? :? Think it's because it's a 30 amp gauge or a battery isn't included in a deal as good as this? :lol:

RM Auctions usually deals in rare high dollar items. I have no idea why that Cub was ever listed.
The headlights/ worklight don't look original and the starter rod is different.

Perhaps because it was part of this collection it fetched more. Seems reasonable that the bidders got caught up in a frenzy with all of the other collectibles.

I collect a lot of stuff too, the only difference is their presentation is nicer.

It probably was two people with a large ego and PLENTY of money.an old black washpot or stewpot as we call them brought $10,000 dollars a few weeks back at a local auction when two brothers who did not get along decided to see who would win.

It sounds like the winner was the loser :)

If I was going to spend $11,000 on a tractor, I would at least want it to have a seat that was a color available in 1948. :shock:

…..Somehow John I think that if you either buy or sell a 48 for 11,000 the word gentleman or gentlemen doesn't come in to play... :lol: ….Owning one of course would be subject to Poetic license…. :big give up:

Our government probably bought it to go with the expensive toilet seats they have or they had a manual lift assy and no tractor.Has the wrong decals also
