Re: Any point even thinking about this?

I'd check if it's petrol or diesel, and why it was parked up. If it's diesel, and was parked up because they bought a new, shiny one, you stand a chance and it would be worth a go.

It's diesel. I used to drive it as a lad with a bale spike on the back. As far as I know it was a runner when parked up about 20 years ago.

Is a machine like this useful these days or is it better to put funds to a cheap old 4 wheel drive tractor.

Get it especially as you have a past connection with it and of course it's cheap enough to
recoup any outlay back from scrap value if it's shot.

I can have it free if I want it. Do you reckon it would run a reasonable grass mower and hay turner?
