Yesterday I jumped on a CL ad for a Cadet mower near me. I picked it up today and had some great conversation with a local farmer frustrated that he once again couldn't spray due to the rain. We chatted a bit, loaded up the Cadet and then he showed me his collection of IH Built Gas/Diesel combination engines. He even fired one up. It took him 4 half cranks to fire that beast and it purred like a kitten. Awesome engineering on those things that automatcally switch from gas to diesel. BTW, I might be in the market for a Cadet hood as this one has one of the hinge tabs broken off. Shipping would be a killer though.
