Any guesses on what sort of an investment it would take to resurrect this beast?

that is a sad sight,but the tranny and blade is reason enough to buy that thing and turn a little profit.

A wing and a prayer! Strip out the tranny and sell it, make yard ornament out of the rest of it.

They always look horrid without the side covers or grille. Might be just the unit to try out all those mods you wouldn't want to try your more expensive tractor!

I'll bet hes lost everything including the engine, tail lights, side panels etc. One of THOSE guys.

Its free after you get the $250 out of the blade though.

If my eyes aren't deceiving me it looks like a quick hitch on the blade, if so I'm betting the blade and hitch will get you $600 - $700 alone!

Yup looks like a quick hitch to me they run on ebay alone for between 5 and 700 add another 500 or so for the blade if ya repainted it. I'd jump on that if I was closer, you could have other toys out of the blade and quickhitch resale alone. Not only that I could use the blade and quickhitch on my x700 right now. LOL

Mustang66guy, you should be posting pictures of it in your truck or on your trailer by now! Someone else will surely grab that if you haven't already!

Two months ago you were looking at a $5000 X500 and now your passing up a $275 425 with a $700 blade.
Should we take up a collection to help you out? :confused:

Remind me not to let Deeretek see anything I'm looking at possibly buying! lol!!!
lol.I carefully scanned the comments and It didnt look like there were any takers.I would never cut in on someone elses find.But since It didnt look anyone was running out to hook up their trailer,i figured i should make my move.The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity.

I agree, got my eye on a tractor right now but I know better than to post details before it's been bought! I might ask a question here but I don't want to tempt anyone to make their deal at my expense! If I can't move on it then I'll put the details up for the members and then it's all on them to get there first!

If I didnt have so much to do on the new house I would buy that in a heart beat. Unfortunately I dont have my garage or workshop finished yet and it would wind up sitting for way too long (read the wife would be ****** that an unfinished mower is sitting in an unfinished workshop. I finally got my Obama home buying tax credit in so hopefully I will be posting pictures of a new x500 in a few days...
