Looks like a 1956 or 1957 model year 311 with hand clutch. Can't see much else, poor pic.

Looks like a 300 roundnose to me, but the tinwork looks carved up to me. Has the hand clutch the tank is shaped like the 300 and the coupler hoses run back the same area. thats my best guess. mEl

I thought it was a roundnose, too, but the sheetmetal threw me off. It looks as if the curve of the sheetmetal actually goes forwards, then up and back to steering post. I thought this might be a rare tractor, if it was a factory piece.

Also, notice where the exhaust comes out. Is that a grassfire manifold turned right-side up?

It is a '56 or '57 roundnose 300 gasser. The 300 exhaust could either come out and up like this one or there is a flange at the back of the manifold to install the under slung exhaust. It looks like someone got scissor happy with the tin snips. The rest of the tractor looks like my 300's, only a little rougher. The hand clutch, hydraulic lines, gas tank, carb, wide front brackets all look like mine.

The manifold is correct & installed normal for a 300. Mine is a 310 with underslung exhaust. Your pic appears to be a 311, note the adjustable front & rear.

The sheet metal appears to have been cropped for access. Looks like a nice job too, I thought of doing similar to mine but am a near total loss re sheet metal work. The round nose sheet metal has to be removed to do almost anything in that cropped area, that is why so many of these tractor have missing and cut up sheet metal.

I have to unship my FEL to move the side sheetmetal away even a little bit. I tap the hyd filter cap, hook up & hang a 0-5 psi gauge near the dash and monitor the differential pressure across the element for a few days rather than all the hazzle to get at and pull the element for maintanence check. Course I do that on most filters out of shear laziness anyway.

Thanks alot guys...so much for my initial thought that I may have found a rare one! I thought it may have been an experimental version of the 300. LOL..

Price look a little steep to me with the hack job on the sheet metal. There is a really nice one coming up in an auction with a narrow front this weekend here at local Auction House. MacFaddens Sharon Springs NY.
