hello all

found an interesting montgomery tractor on CL but i don't know much about it. these are the pics on the ad:



a few questions: does this model typically come with a 3ph or a sleeve hitch? what size are the rear wheels/tires? how hard is it to find a mowing deck for these? lastly, how much could i potentially get if i sold the breaking plow and the discs?

It will be a sleeve Hitch and That a Very Good Looking Gilson It's sad to see Gilson Didn't Make it past the mid 1980's They made a Very Good tractor:thThumbsU

There is a plow similiar to that one sitting on CL in my area, asking $75, been there for a couple weeks. Those discs could fetch a goodly amount. You only need a garden bigger than mine.
Prices now for them are near the bottom. Selling in the spring would get you more.
It looks like the tiller is missing the 3 weights that attach to the back edge, and the tiller lift rod isn't pictured, but it can be replicated easily.

ok, so not much at all. seller is asking quite a bit for this tractor + accessories and i just don't need the plow + discs but if i'm only looking at recouping a couple hundred tops, its not worth it. thanks for the info

thanks. i thought i'd seen a gilson in this forum that looked like this one. this tractor has a manual transmission, right? the one i saw on here (at least i think it was on here) had a pedal like older bolens models, i'm guessing it was hydro with pedal control.

any of these come with 3phs?
