George, it's nice you got a bonus for being a good friend.  Are you going to use it or send it to a new home?  It looks like it is in really nice shape. :thumbs:

My current plans are to keep it Dave. While it's not a large mower, we can use it as backup. When we bought this place the former owner left behind a 22hp Huskee. It ran rough when we first started it but George tinkered with it and has it running well. We also use George's Massey 12 with ag tires to mow a small bank at the side of the garage.

That's great George.  You can actually use it.  Certainly a nice backup.  Congratulations.

Backup mowers are always a plus! Especially a free one!

Grand, good for you.

 

That machine has some similarities to the late 70'searly 80's LT's from Sears... Hmmm.

I did find a tag on the tractor that says it was made by Roper. The little info I was able to find did say that Roper made tractors for Sears at one time. They may have used the same design for these.
