this one had been sitting in a field for at least a year and a half.before that it looks like someone had done some "home fixes".it was double over full of oil that was milky and most of the engine tin was missing,the carb was all out of wack and that is the start.i drained and changed the oil,cleaned and adjusted the carb and got it running pretty good.now mind you someonew has done a job on the wiring,you start it by shorting the silenoid and choke it to shut it off.i has another front wheel from a gt6000 and i think it was another indy tractor but it had bushings for 1 inch spindels? didnt know craftsman had any 1 inch.i changed to a 3/4 bearing and put it on,to replace the one bad front tire.i replaced the seat and replaced the the engine shrouds.it starts right up and runs good and strong and shifts drives good.now im not sure what i will do with it.someone took the electric pto off and there is no mule drive setup.so im debating is this tractor strong enough to put a sleeve hitch on to plow and disc with or a big rear grader blade? im wondering about the frame,front axle and spindels.

It should be big enough to use a sleeve hitch on it.

Hello, I just traded for one like this. The electric lift still works. Do you know where I can find what it is worth? I'm interested in trading or selling it. Do you know anyone that may be interested?

can you send me some pix and the number of hours on your machine?I now have 5 of these mowers numbers:35,27,29,and two versions that were sold to the public with tags that read "limited edition" instead of the "used at the motor speedway"tag.think im in need of a twelve step program over these?
