Here's the 575135 tractor I just put back together. All the seals and differential springs were replaced and fresh paint applied. The paint is rattle can style but, will be fine for gardening work. I would like to have painted the motor to match as it was originally but decided to wait for the warranty on it to expire first.

I chuckled when I read the bit about the warranty on the engine, and then I looked closer and enlarged the picture. That engine looks good on there, and the paint job is very well done. Congrats on a nice restoration.

Thanks! Yes, those are the 15".


The 135's came with all the bells and whistles, 15" ag tires, vari-speed pulleys and the all important reverse. It also has basically the tranny of the rider to come in a couple yrs. If it had 2 more wheels it would have been a suburban rider.

Yes, the differential axle makes a big difference when turning around at the end of the row. Also, the reverse makes life so much easier if you want to back up in a plowed field or when hooking up implements. I think this will be my real work horse.
