I just went and picked up another Panzer the other morning. That makes 6 complete units. The other 3 are just parts and 1 parts Copar (3 wheels). The newest one came with a mower deck and a push blade. This one has a Frankensteined Tecumseh engine on it. I was thinking, "Oh boy, this ought to be a nightmare!" The gas tank was full of rust. I was a little worried.
I got it home and I disconnected the feed line, mounted a secondary tank...temporary of course, cleaned the carb checked the oil, and gave it a pull . To my amazement, it started on the second pull. I used it around the yard a bit and was more than happy with my purchase!
I took it to my parents house yesterday and my two nephews came over. I hooked a 17 cu ft trailer/wagon behind it and they took turns giving rides. The trailer was a bit rough on me but I sucked it up. My sister used a 5 gallon bucket for a seat. My brother used a lawn chair. Lol.
The kids drove it around in low for about an hour without so much as a hiccup, sputter or back fire. They drove through mud in the pasture, over a rock pile but mostly just through the yard. It only used about a quart or so of gas.
Below are some pictures and a few videos. Be sure to comment!
