Well , seem to be on a roll . Was down the road from my house and saw an old tractor and asked about it . Didn't think much of it at the time . Went back and asked how much . The gentleman said $200 .

I know nothing about these or this brand (Simplicity/AC guy here) but people have said it's a steal . Thinking of cleaning it up and maybe adding a loader / backhoe to it . From what I've been told , it's a good solid tractor and is one that people look for because of the triple hydraulics .


John Deere 140 H3 , K231 engine





Btw , trying to figure out what the tractor is in the background . He doesn't know , but uses it for pulling events (hence the little trophy as hood ornament) .

Nah you don't want that tractor don't you live close to me I will come by and get it no problem lol! The john deere 140 H3 is probably one of if not the most desirable john deere garden tractors there is. I had one years ago and didn't realize what I had till I sold it. Mine was completely siezed evrything on the tractor was stuck and I thought it was junk put it on craigslist as parts best offer in about 2 minutes I had a 300. dollar offer Of course I said come get it and he did I got about 20 email offers from 50. to 450. for it as is in a matter of about an hour it took for him to come pick it up. So yes you did steal it good for you....

Like I said , I know nothing about these . But I've been told it has the "heavy duty" rims . Also to inspect it to see if it has white paint anywhere hidden on the frame . Apparently they made a "Patio" tractor that is rare and collectable .

Either way , she is gonna be working alongside the 3210V . Figure I can split the work between the two .


Lol , I guess I finally have something to mount this free item I picked up .





Yup , got that one free . Was stored in a garage for the last few years after the guys wife gave his tractor away . affraid
