DISCLAIMER--- NOT MINE! Its my neighbor's, he asked me to advertise it for him. 24 HP Onan runs and works, rear PTO,

not orig paint. owner painted a dark late 80s ford Ranger blue... like a midnight blue.
54" Deck rebuilt 1-1/2 years ago by me. he used it at his hunting/fishing cottage about 6X a year...

Located in Kankakee IL, not even 3 miles from the old Roper plant...
delivery not available. He's wanting $750, I ain't the handy one with computer pix, gonna have to ask my son for help there.... I am just the guy that's registered on this GT forum, LOL Im the middle man, I guess.
I guess the best thing would be to have interested people send me a PM with E mail/cell phone, to pass onto my neighbor Bud--- the owner. He can do "some E mail". I don't think he can upload/post pix though.

NOTE. he DOES NOT TEXT, what so ever, though.

Sounds like a good buy to me! But I'm low on GT funds right now!

Smitty

yeah it is  

 

I wouldn't mind it myself, but my yard is too small and I have had to do some "downsizing" because i simply have too many "half done" projects as it is already.... home improvements, project car, project harley golf cart,  2 "obstacle course" garages that I need to clean, etc. add in 2 hours daily on the road, commuting for work...

I have run this machine myself several times... it is a powerful machine.  He said something about a 3 point and a few spare pieces "if he can find them"  we all know how that "if" thing works.

 

On the no delivery thing... I know that Bud wouldn't be able to do anything on that front; I may be able to, in a couple weeks, when I get some things caught up;  new clutch in my Dakota, trailer unloaded/ twin post hoist that's taking up my trailer at the moment, put up in the garage.... but no promises at this time.  If I can get somewhat caught up, I could do ~75-100 miles. truck stop,  Wal mart parking lot etc....  for anyone interested  get ahold of me and I'll relay your info.

ok, a bump; 

having had many countless hours of seat time on this machine personally, I can say it IS a beast...

 

On the idea of possible delivery/... My Dakota's back goin' again (dam Chinamade clutches.. never buy a "Perfection" brand-- whoever thought that a plastic sleeve for the throwout bearing was a good idea, needs to be hung from their private parts, cast iron sleeves never broke like this one; and I have had it twice with this brand clutch now, on this very truck  within 16K miles, so I bought a LUK brand clutch kit this time) that's alot of work to do, just for a busted t/o bearing and very aggravating to boot. and people wonder why I have such a "problem" with anything made in China.... here's proof as to why Made in USA is so much better. 

 

and my above ground twin post lift got put up in my garage last weekend, so my trailer is now freed up;

(though I did the clutch job the week before by laying on my back beneath the truck  now for the 3rd time, LOL)

so though Bud can't/isnt interested in any sort of delivery  I may be able to work somethin out with a buyer for gas money and munchies for the road, may be able to meet someone-- truck stop, Walmart parking lot etc within ~75-100 miles of here...

anyone that wants pix PM me...

I would love to own one, but my wife would absolutely go nuts if I spent anywhere close to what it's worth or drove that far for a tractor.

I hope it finds a nice home.

yea my wife goes nuts too but usually gets over it

I am gonna TRY and see if I can get a pic up here

miraculously I succeeded in sending a couple to a member here that PMd me and asked for me to Email them, lets see if my luck continues..nope  I hit the image icon... what is a "URL"? It's asking for that... I tried to copy/paste them here and it lets me "copy",  but "paste" is gray when I come back here (so it wont let me) .

I sent them to member "Gary 65"  so if he doesn't take the machine maybe he can relay the pix here?
or if someone else wants to PM me their E mail. I can send them to you that way... and you can post them here if you want
