For few years now I have seen this tractor sitting in the weeds behind a house less than 1/8 of a mile up the road from me. I finally got around to talking to owner and bought it the other day. It is a Speedex model 1240 tractor. Overall it's not in bad shape but it does need some work.
The engine is a 12hp Kolher that needs to be rebuilt. I was told the rod bearing went bad and the disassembled the motor to find the problem. I believe him because the motor is intact but eveything is put on finger tight mostly.
The mower deck is in surprisingly good shape considering it sat on the ground for years. It is still very solid and turns freely.
My plans for this tractor are to either sell the frame and deck or part it out. I plan to keep the engine and rebuild it to have a spare enigne. I think I got a good deal on it for $60.

You got a great deal, what a bargain. What size rear tires does it have?

Don't part that. Where you at? I'm in NE Indiana and would like to buy the chassis from you. You can keep the engine. Most speedex always seem to be in Eastern Ohio. Where's this one? Send me a pm if you wanna talk.

 I don't know the exact size of the rear tires but the rims are 15 inch in diameter
