I recently stumbled across a 1960 Wheel Horse, looks to be a Suburban or similar model. It runs great and appears to look in good condition in the pictures! It has both the mower deck and a snow plow. So what is it worth? He is asking $425, which I didn't think was that bad for a Suburban,Its probably a 400 or a 550 Suburban.

The neighbors don't like it when I drive my tractor on the sidewalk!!

No Lincense plate? No problem, I have a fluorescent orange triangle!

If it is a 1960 It is not an RJ, it would be either a 400 or a 550 Suburban.

To me...that would be worth the money if it looks good.

Ditto, with the attachments included, I think the price is right in the ballpark. :baseball:

Do you have any pictures of it? It all depends on condition and if it has the correct parts. Jake

I payed $500 for my little suburban 1 year ago this Friday and it had the wrong tires and front rims on it, Other then that it was complete and ran good. I thought it was a good buy.
