Poor 3016, sitting, sitting sitting. Pic's

I thought I'd snap a couple pictures of this 3016 that has been in the same place for over 2 years. It actually is not in bad shape at all and shows 1060 hours. Not sure if that is correct.
Been left for dead I think.
I may leave a note on it and see if I get a call. I think it has the vanguard engine too, but not the gusseted rear axle. Must not be a very late model. I'm guessing 90's? My 2006 4023 had the newer rear and black frame.

This one looks to have lost it's cover obviously, probably from snow, wind or both.
Both that tractor and property looked un-touched for years.

A shame such a fine machine has been forgotten (at least it seems) and left out in the elements.

If I can get in contact with whomever owns it I will try.

Just not sure this is the best way to go. I'd need to install a pto so I could have a hydro-bagger. Not sure how much that'll all run me.
And of course I could just get it, clean it all up and re-sell.

Absolutely. I would never dream of doing anything shady. Most likely I will not even bother.
It is very close to the road. Was walking by this time and decided to take the pictures.
Town hall is a great suggestion.

i almost feel bad posting the pictures now after your experience.

I do not make it a habit to buy and sell machines. Really only did it once in NC with an older wheel horse. It was too nice to use once I cleaned it up. Sold it to a collector.

Thanks for the info.

I may ask mods to remove thread.

I will post progress but will take a while.


MU just go to the township like suggested and find out who owns it or ask a neighbor, be respectful like the guys on American Pickers, hand the guy a list - you know of the kind of things you like to buy - Colt, Case, Ingersoll... :D
Will do, well maybe not the list......:sidelaugh


On my last drive by it was gone/moved.
Guess the owned decided to put it back to use or sold it.
