DSCF5273.JPG This snapper was on its way to the junkyard. friend of mine bought it from 2 guys that were loading it as he saw it! He asked them what it would take for them to load it on his trailer and they said $50. He brought it to me and with some tinkering, I mowed the backyard with it last fall!

It's not a collector or anything but it was free and works like a top. very solid and runs very good. All I had to do was put a battery in it and change out the starter.

Here's one that my brother was going to scrap.He had had it for over ten years and his father in law had it before him.It is a Murray and a rare one at that.The tractor is badged as a Yard King.The Murray guys call this model a "square nose"and the square nose Murray's did not come out until 1990.This tractor is an 1989.Since Yard King"was a store model built for a certain chain of stores the thinking is this hood style was designed for this store brand and Murray liked it and used it on the Murray branded tractors for 1990 on thru the 90s.These are strong GT's with peerless cast iron 2300 series 4 speed transaxle with a low low .6MPH 1st gear.The tractor has a 18 horse power twin II Briggs.There were both both a sleeve hitch and 2 3 point hitch's available.A manual sears or electric sears.

I've heard hints before that the Murrays had a peerless 2300 axle.  I'll have to see if I can find one worth transplanting into my Massey.  BUT, I'll try and make sure it isn't a rare square nose!

It's a 72 but it's hard to tell them apart unless you see them from the front and back

Pretty much all of the BD stuff is for sale I mostly stick to Brinly attachments and attachments for the Deere's most all of the rest is for sale or trade {all though I don't try real hard to sell} :smilewink: I guess I should as I and running out of room for all the other things I have been keeping. I should go down and get the rest of the pics as there is maybe 15 or more tractors I did not show
