Hey Steve...All the early lawn & garden tractors like the Cub Cadet "Original" and the John Deere 110's & 112's have jumped in value now that they are 40+ years old.
The Kohler 7, 8 & 10 h.p. tractors are worth more than the Tecumpsaw models. This is probably only going to escalate as the years go by
...Soooo, get on the band wagon and make sure you get some
! I'm now restoring my former John Deere 112 (1971 built) that I gave to my stepson (he left it out in the NH weather for 8 years without even a tarp over it!!!!)
. The tires were flat...but that old 10 h.p. Kohler started right up with just FRESH gas and a NEW sparkplug and the points cleaned and re-gapped! I would guess that THAT'S another reason why these old, well-built L&G tractors are so sought after...NOW, if only George Willer & I could get that old and highly sought after!
