It resembles Kenny's big Craftsmans but is a smaller brother. It's a lawn tractor by the looks of it an not nearly as heavy as the larger GT's.

It looks worth the $150.

Kenny's FF towers over that tractor. One big thing you will notice is the small rear axles with the wheels mounted on keys. Which in turn means there are typically bushing instead of bearing on those shafts. Definitely not ground engaging capable. Would be great for mowing and light hauling duties. Anything beyond that would mean things will start breaking and wearing out very quickly. It is in good shape and if it runs good would still be worth the 150. Its just limited on what it can do.

Just read the ad and noticed it will only go into reverse. Could be bent or broke shifter lever or could mean the rear end is shot.

Keep moving folks, nothing to see here :D

P.S. if it had rear lug nuts, it may be a different story :thumbs:
