Welcome. I have been wanting to visit the Horicon works. I wish I could have been there last summer for the 50th anniversary.

On the 430, nice choice. We have vintage section for L&G, where your 430 will be at home. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors I'm on the tail of a 430 now, but I need to spruce up my 445 to make the deal. I have a few John Deere L&Gs, now, and had several over the years.

Too bad you don't still have that '63 110. They're highly sought after now, and bring good money. Only a 1000 were made, so they're kind of rare. The '63s and '64s are the most desirable ones, and also the '66 110Hs and '66 112Hs.

I would give a lot to have that one in particular. I have been looking for a tractor that my Dad sold. For some reason, I think it would be nice to have. He died in 1984, so the chances of finding one and tracing it get slimmer every day. I can find ones that I sold, but they don't mean that much to me.
