It looks like i wont get anytime to work on the tractors. With this so called Storm coming in. Hopefully the rain will hold off today, but its already misting out. Looks like i will be reading up on the forums for the next couple days till it passes. To bad i have been itching to get things done.

I got the mower deck off the Gt17 today. The blades all spin with some resistance. The lift system is completely stuck and rotted. I will post some pictures of it to see what you guys think. I might be able to fix it, but my welding is not so good. Its also probably not worth my time. I have been searching CL trying to find another mower deck. I can't seem to find one. Does anyone know how valuable are these decks are? I still need more time to see if the engine will turn over. Then i will decide what i am going to do with it.
Two decks in CT. New Milford is a bit of a haul for you. Not sure where the other one is, but probably a similar distance.

They both would be over a 2 hour drive for me. Its a little to far for me. At least i i know some prices for the attachments. I will keep looking though. Thank you very much for keeping me in mind.

Do you have a tire machine? Putting tubes in tires isn't THAT hard, but can be a little tough without a machine.
Well i went ahead and bought new tires anyway. The old ones would have worked with tubes, but i figured i might as well just do it. I tired for a little bit today to get the tire off. I could not get it. Then i stopped and figured i could give them to my oldest brother who has access to a tire machine. Hopefully he is able to do them soon.

I did try a ratchet strap around the middle but the sidewalls are to far pushed in. The strap only makes them go toward the center more. I tried using two straps one on each side of the tire. It looked like it was about to go but i could not get it. I will have to try again tomorrow when i can get some another set of hands.
I use a ratchet strap around the middle of the tire. That usually will push the sides out to where it can seat.

Is the snowblower single or two stage? I think location will make a big difference in price. Depends on how popular Ariens was in your area.
It is a two stage. The biggest problem i have is i dont have anywhere to paint it. I will probably go take a look sometime this week. Its not to far from me so i will see how it really looks in person.
