Found one..........4 post 5088

Recommended Posts

I will be watching to make sure they don't give it away, but need it like another set of glasses for the back of my head.  There can't be many of these floating around out there anymore?

Tires match. Axles aren't cut. Sheet metal's all there. That tells me someone cared a little bit.

We had a 5088 4 post years ago.  Some days I miss it, most days I don’t!

it sure looks solid but kinda goofy looking, are those the correct size front tires?

I got a 50 series here with a cab already, sure would like a 4 post for a chore tractor with the STS.............I keep an eye out for 4 posts online, cruze craiglist all over the country, and you just never see a 50/52/54 with them..........I assume most went to the south and were destroyed that were optioned that way, or if they didn't, the 4 post was swapped out for a salvage cab.

Gotta wonder why they have not tried to start it...Sounds like they know there is problems and then they do not need to stand by it by not trying. Probably need to bid like it is a junk tractor.

Says it probably needs a tune up.   Just points and plugs, right? 😁

In Texas it will only go so cheap because of the TERP(?spl) deal.

Sold before Christmas across the river in OK, then went to Brinkley auctions week later, now its at tractor jockey in Commerce TX. Every piece of equipment at the original farm sale was  ragged. Guy was hard on everything

The pics on auctiontime don't match yours. Did someone spray paint it?

tthe two speed pto has value if nothing else.

There was one at a cotton gin south of delta dirts place when I went through there a few years ago.

Looks the same to me.............I would guess with this back story she is stuck or if it is loose, not good.

Imagine they washed it with diesel to shine. Still a money pit pile of crap. No telling what horrors lie inside.

It seems like every 5088 I see is like this. Just a completely ragged out pos. Occasionally a high priced baby doll but no solid back to the farm tractors.

Always amazes me on why the front wheels are always different offbrand replacement rims on these old tractors

Lots of Cabbed versions I find on craiglist in the corn belt for realistic prices...............I bought the 52 I have for around $9k, been a great tractor, my only complaint is I should have bought the MFD 52 twin that sat next to it on the lot as well at the time as it was only acouple K more.  This one here has my eye because of it being a 4 post...............
