Because they run cooler without the mouse nests that get caught under them,

 

Kind of like removing the discharge chute on the exit of a mower deck!!

I wonder how bad it looked before someone got happy with a can of olive drab.

Wait a minute. The price is right, the tractor is wrong. Just thinking outside the box!

He says he is looking for a newer riding mower, one might be able to trade him a cheapie MTD for it and the attachments.

Great Idea  Email Sent lol

 

I want it but sadly it's Just a tad bit to far away or I would offer a trade for my little 2009 MTD built Troy Bilt Pony.

 

Why the heck would you paint Everything the same color? Looks like he even painted the steering wheel OMG AND the Seat lol.

 

It does look to be mostly complete and not rusted apart but $1200 ??? Heck NO!!

 

 

 

I bet the valves are burnt and the rings are toast if he's running it without the Cylinder Head cover.

 

 

I emailed him with a Pic of my Troy Bilt so we'll see just what he's wanting to trade for.

 

Here's my little mower.

Hope he goes for it lol

 

I've been looking for a 1000 for a while,even if it is in need of work.

 

He may even deliver it but if not my brother lives 20 minutes from Allentown.

for the same reason they remove the deck chute guards, battery tie downs, and air breather covers, their smarter than any ol stupid engineer. I think there should a open carry law regarding shovels, that way when you see someone like this you can give them a well deserved whack

Got an Email back from him.He's looking to trade for a newer Lawn Tractor with atleast a 48" deck.

 

If I wasn't so far away he said he would consider trading for my Troy Bilt if he can't find anything else.

 

I don't know why he priced it so high,I didn't even bother to ask.

 

 

I wish I had my little ranger running,I would run my mower out there.
