    Depends on what you want to do with it. It would be handy for moving dirt or snow, loader looks decent but I don't see a bucket for it, back blade is handy for grading. If it has a PTO you could mow with it. Make sure parts are availible before commiting to it.

    I have a 9N that I use for moving dirt and snow with a box blade and it sure is handy, but I also have a couple of acres and have done a lot of filling and leveling over the years.

    Ok I didnt know that bucket intresting. Yes mostly moving dirt and snow probably. Level the yard up and clean up some stumps. A rear pto would be nice for a post hole digger or a mower. I was trying to figure out if it had a bucket the one picture looks like it did but then the other didnt so much. Is the price reasonable? I called machine shop said 250 to bore it out. If it ran before maybe I can get by with just running a hone down it? Depending on how bad it is. Who knows what pistons bearings gaskets will cost. I guess have the weigh all that vs buying a running tractor by they seem to be around 4 or 5k.

    Looks like there is some type of push blade on the loader. The rear blade is handy for moving loose dirt, grading driveways, and moving snow. It's probably worth a couple of hundred dollars. To do any serious reshaping a box blade works a lot better.

    It depends on what it costs to get it running again. A kit with sleeves, pistons and gaskets is about $250 for the 3 cyl engines.

    Oops, the piston kit I was looking at was for a 4 cyl. Not sure what the 3 cyl runs.

    Finally made it over to my shop, cold weather and overtime at work have kept me pretty busy the last couple of weeks image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg .
    As far as I can tell they should fit with a stock bumper, might need some longer bolts though. If you can find the whole bumper assembly you can get the tow hooks too.
