In general, if it runs as good at it looks, 2200 might be very good. Should have been painted all grey, but that's cool.
The 2-14 plows were made for this model, but yeah, the first time tilling your place might not go so well, but if you plow once or twice a year, it will become fun. A new tire is a couple to a few hundred, a good used on Craigslist might be less than 100. See what he says, but take a test run and your own pics, and let us see! Good luck.

Thanks for the input. Yea , I looked up tires and got sticker shock for new ones. Also, if I can't move the tire I would need someone to come out and do it so add service charge to it.

You can probably handle the tire yourself if you have a boom pole for the other tractor. Don't let the tire fall so you can roll it outside and pick it up with hook in one of the bolt holes and dump it on your trailer. It might weigh up to 500 lbs, so that will work ok if your Kubota can pick up that much. Keep kids and pets out of the way. If the Kubota can't pick it up, put it under a chain hoist and then back your trailer under the hoist. It really isn't too big a deal removing and replacing a loaded tire yourself if you are careful. If you have one person to help, it's quite easy. You will need a tire, a new tube, and new fluid most likely. You may need a rim. Once you get it off you will find rust on the rim, which you may be able to repair or grind away. If it is rusted bad at the valve hole, drill a new hole and weld a piece of steel over the old rusted hole (or buy a new rim). Tire, tube, fluid, labor maybe $400. Rim another 135 or so. More labor if they have to take it off the tractor and put it back on.

You are spot on with the cost. I called our local tire place and was quoted 325 for the tire, 75 for fluid and tube. Total 400.
I could lift the tires with the front end loader on the kubota. I did both rear tires on the kubota with no help, not too bad.
Weighed less than 500 though.

There are some tricks to putting the loaded wheel back on. Have someone 'feather' the jack as you get the first hole on the stud. Put a slick piece of vinyl under the tire so you can rotate it slightly as you maneuver it.

Cheapest way to get a tire swapped out is to go to anyplace that has alot of trucks (freight terminal or truck stop). See one of the guys with a tire truck, most are willing to make a few bucks on the side.

Saw the tractor today. I admit I am no expert, but It looked as good as any I have seen. Paint,no rust I could find. Joints greased. I checked fluids, the oil was clear, antifreeze looked good, transmission fluid was brown, he explained it is a 85-90 weight oil that is that color, you are supposed to get it from Massey, that is what is recommended for transmission fluid. New alternator, 12v system , new wire harness, new plugs, radiator good, no dents ,newer pto. Checked underneath, slight bead of black oil at the lowest part of the frame, I could not detect any leak at the oil drain plug. Did not look like it had ever been abused. Some life left in the left tire, other three tires new to very good shape. Saw one bolt on the left wheel that attaches to the tire rim that looked like it might have been damaged in adjusting the rim, but as the tractor was freshly painted it was had to see. Started ok, only problem was that it was backed into the garage and I had stopped by on short notice, not enough time to back it out and check how it drove. I saId I would stop by next weekend, I can't get out during the week, and then I could drive it. It certainly looks like it was well cared for. Price is not negotiable, but will transport which is huge. Gauges all worked and water temp gauge was new. There were 3 total gauges. Forgot to take my camera so no pictures to show.
