I have to post and brag here guys.

 

After I threw a rod in my dad's 14hp briggs powered lowes special, I hit craigslist for a garden tractor to replace it.  

 

500.00, towed it home, and it was cutting grass that afternoon.  This thing is a tank.

Its in near new shape!  Only 256 hours, near zero rust, OG paint, non cracked seat, Im just tickled with it.

That's a really nice score! It's really hard to find a low hours well maintained tractor like that for 500$. That should last you a long time!
