Enjoy.

Good looking tractor! (We now have matching GT's.)

I am hoping to restore or refurbish mine in the spring but plan to blow snow with it first. I was encouraged by the popularity of your post. These are good tractors that are fun to use. Again, welcome to the club.

Excellent tractor. Where in Maine are you folks located? My birth mother lives in Stowe over near the NH state line. Keep that Onan clean, valves adjusted and she will live a long life. Cooling is highly important on these, they will not tolerate running lean/hot or hot from gunk build up on the flywheel side of the jugs cooling fins. You can still get ag tread tires and front tri ribs for these from Miller tire, but those rear tires are not cheap to replace, not that the fronts are either. Enjoy that new tractor!

We're very excited about it! I can't wait to get a three-point hitch on it and really get to work. So far, the tractor has been a champ hauling leaves and yard waste to the pile on the back 40. Looking forward to mounting the blade. :-)

Thanks, Guys! We're in Midcoast. We have a lot to learn about the Onan, but we're looking forward to the learning curve! Where's Miller Tire?
