The Huskee in the photo was made by the Roper Company. The way I recognized it was by the style of the hood.

I would say that the Roper mowers that were built then were made closely like the MTD's mowers at that time. They were a fine mower if you did not have any heavy duty work to do, but worked fine as a mower tractor.

I think that they were built with Briggs and Stratton engines and either a Pearless or Techumseh trannys.

The thing for parts I believe is that Sears bought out the Roper company, which Sears is made by the AYP company.

If I had the choose between a older JD or the Roper I would choose the JD.

yeah, Obviously my grand-pa's Deere is by far and a way my first choice. He always kept everything of his in great condition.

and by the way (not that it matters because I think I will skip on the Huskee) the Huskee has a Kohler motor

Thanks to all for the welcomes .
Texas Deere and Horse, I am in San Angelo Tx.

GLgrumpy, you make a good point about the axel having bushings instead of bearings. these are things im looking to know.
my budget for my potential new mower/tractor is small. hopefully no more than $1,000. so, Power King i wish (as far as i can tell)
what is the IH Cub Cadet? I still haven't learned the differences in these tractors models and which is a sturdy machine and which is mass market machines.


An IH Cub Cadet was built by International Harvester, these were built before about 1980. Cub Cadet was sold to MTD and first sold by CCC I.e.Cub Cadet Corp, later the CCC brand was dropped and it became just Cub Cadet. Most Cub Cadets were Yellow and White. During the CCC days there were some Red one built. If it has a cast iron rear end it's an IH built model.
