This one sat on Craigslist for a long time without any takers. They made a big deal about the blade, but they should have advertised the 80 cart too.

After 3 hours on the road, this is what I brought home:
- 1966 110 with Hydraulic Lift (Serial number 46284)
- Spare set of lug tires
- Mower deck
- 42" Blade
- 80 Cart (Serial number 7998)

It runs great - no smoke, even under load. It starts right up. Cosmetically it is in nice shape too. It looks like I am missing one guard and the steering wheel has seen better days. At some point they tried to paint the cart and parts of the tractor have some touch up paint, but I am pretty sure most of it is in original condition.

The owner said this has been sitting in his shop for quite a while. Prior to that, his brother (or brother-in-law) had it. He had another Deere for mowing, so it looks like the 110 saw cart duty. The tires look original and there is a lot of tread on them.

The blade works awesome. It is really smooth with the hydraulic lift. The only mechanical issue I see is the generator light stays on the whole time.

I wasn't in the market for a 110, but this was too good of a deal to pass up. After buying an X300 in 2007, last year I bought a GX345 and now the 110. My herd is growing!

That 80 cart is in great shape! Looks like your 39 inch deck is in great shape too! Nice find on all that!

Try Ebay and see if you can score a used one, otherwise I believe there is a website you can get the CD from. That is a nice looking tractor.

You need to teach your little one to operate it so maybe they can help out with some "work" around the old home place.

Great tractor and accessories! What a find.
The photo of you and your son on the Deere remindes me of many years ago when my now 17-year-old would ride with me on our first Deere. Cherish these times with him!
