Help Id Old Tractor
Posted September 25, 2012 - 03:51 PM
I was directed here by a listmember at yesterdays tractors. Here is my post from there...
Good day all,
Well, I saw an ad on craiglist for an old lawn tractor and it looked like a mini version of my massey, so I traded an old spanish shotgun for it. It is a Herc-X made by R. Herschel Mfg. corp. Is this a rebadged other manufacture (like gravely or other). It has a Kohler engine and a pull cord start. It is current stuck in either 1 or 2. Havent decided how to go about freeing that up. Was bought in Ohio from the garage of the original owner (so I am owner #3). Anyway, any help finding a deck or any other implements for this cool little bugger are appreciated!
Any help with ID and info would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Very nice tractor you found. I don't think that you will find implements for it very easily. I am sure with some digging and some $$$ you could find something. I would keep it like it is and clean it up and take it to shows.
It really is in great shape. I'd give it a good bath, then wipe it down with ATF and haul it to some shows.
As George said, with enough searching (and a few $$$) you may find a deck, but considering that the tractor itself is pretty rare... I'd bet implements will be even tougher to find
