Are these any good? Anyway, I got this and a John Deere stx 38. I have no idea if either of them run. Here is a picture, I havent had time to work on them. There still on the trailer along with like 2 brake rotors and a '79 dodge power wagon grill.

Looks like you went fishing & got a nice catch. What are you using for bait? LOL

LOL, I would like to know too. Seems everyone has a few tricks up their sleeves to bring tractors home.

Nice little Snapper! Any single blade deck mows really nice...better than multiple blades can. And the twin engine in the little bugger is great! I'd get the Snapper going if I had it. Looks similar to the MF85.

WOW, I have an LT 11 with a Briggs 11 HP.
I grabbed it just because of it looking so much like the larger frame Massey/Snapper big brother.
I call her my "Baby Massey"
Is that the motor that came in an LT 12??
I passed one up awhile back not knowing it had a twin motor.:wallbanging:
Thought it was just a 12 HP version of the LT 11. Darn_Darn Did I 4really mess up that bad????

It does look nice dont it. Ya, the singles do mow nice, when adjusted right. Thing I am happy with is it came with the bagger and has dual pipes! Didnt massey build these?

Are you sure that old girl was not re-powered by some body that was good at what they do?
