Was asked to sandblast and paint this. Owner having second thoughts. Would you repaint it or leave it as is. How old do you think it is or what model is it. Did some looking on internet only ones I see have two steel wheels up front. Bottom of shovel says DEERE. Also the big question what's it worth owner might be interested in selling it.

We had one like that when I was young. Used a team of horses to pull it and it worked good in not too hard of ground.

We had one on the farm when I was little, but it had 2 wheels in front. I'm 75 years old and I know it was used many years before I was born. Looked like the same machine except the front wheels though.

That is a interesting digger. We had one that hooked behind an old two wheel tractor with a hit and miss engine. The weight of the driver on the seat kept the digger in the ground and it had two outboard wheels to adjust the depth. I don"t think it was a factory option - but it really made the work easier. I hadn"t thought about that in years.
