Not even if Gen Patton himself had mowed with it

Even if Patton hadn't died 21 years before this tractor was manufactured, this guy is still pretty proud of his round fender.

Re: Not even if Gen Patton himself had mowed with it

I will flank those dandelions myself.

Go get my John Deere one ten, or I will punch you, in the belly.



General Patton died in 45, so they must of took care of his yard after his death, which I guess looks like a 110 deere.

But there was some real deere's that were being tested for battle ideas. They had a 30 caliber guns.

John Deere A


1963 953 wheel horse hydraulic lift 54" dozer blade, 420cc Predator 60340.

2001 John Deere from Denmark 415 diesel 54" deck.
1998 2020LC 60" deck.
2016 Cheetah zero turn 61" Kohler fuel injected.
And a lot more...

I didn't realize the timing, but that add smelled worse then a pulp mill.

Maybe it mowed the lawn at a house he used to live in lol

Re: Not even if Gen Patton himself had mowed with it

Since when does painting the hood & fenders qualify as a "fresh restoration"???

That's a horrible idea! What time?

He could have said it was new waiting in a barn for his return.

Re: Not even if Gen Patton himself had mowed with it

Yes, very interesting! And a nice looking tractor. Still, without any valid provenance proving that the tractor came from the farm, $3000 is kinda steep.

Well I guess You Just Need to ask the seller for Proof
I actually Met Major General George Patton IV when I was 15 Just a few years before He retired from The Army. Because My Father was On the Generals staff. George Patton IV was defiantly Not Like His father(old Blood & Guts) He was More Like General Bradley His soldiers & staff Loved serving for Him. I Joined the Army 1 Year after George Patton IV retired

Somehow, I can't picture a general officer of any family out mowing his own grass. It would be more natural for them to be sitting in a command car at the edge of the lawn, directing several battalions of riders.

Patton's descendency is rather odd, I think. George S, Jr. (Old Blood and Guts), is actually George III. His grandfather was George S., his dad was George S. Sr., he is George S. Jr., and his son is George S. IV. Seems like Grand Dad would be Senior instead of his Dad.

I live in the area and knew the General a bit. When he retired started a real farm. Often donated produce he grew to local food banks. Classy guy.

His wife is still alive and is a delightful individual as well.
