$100 would be tops. I'm just not into riding mowers myself. Now garden tractors........

It's got to be an older riding Lawnmower. Best guess is early 70's.

It's probably worth that, but I would shoot for less as I don't need a vert shaft Teccy 6 HP in my life... :)

I think this would go well with the MF-7. Then I would have one for each boy. Just trying to get some info on it...

It uses a chain drive from the transmission back to the rear axle - those transmissions seem to be fairly stout.

My dad had one very similar to that when I was a kid, except his was brown or black and that kind of cream color they used back then. I think his was a 7hp Tecumseh.

Should be as good or better than a new box store tractor...

It most likely has a fiberglass hood and the rear fenders might also be fiberglass. If they are, it would make it easier for a restoration having that much less possible rust to deal with. It wouldn't be much of a workhorse but I think it would make a great first tractor!

A nice project tractor for you to work on together. As long as the boys like the tractor then it's a good prospect.

Sorry, I didn't see you had replied to this. No, I don't have any idea on model... In the early 60's, the craftsman name was used on the industrial and heavy duty units, this looks later than that and I would guess it was an entry level riding mower. Cute little bugger, bet it has a great turn radius with as short as it looks in that pic.
