I had been looking everywhere for a good garden tractor. Last friday I found one, two blocks from my house.

I got the tractor, mower deck, a early 70's Sears tiller, cultivator, and an off brand trailer.

It runs great, but has a leak at the fuel bowl, needs axle seals and the deck needs a complete rebuild. I'll get it mechanically sound for now, then who knows.
